EDUC: Education

This guide will help you find and evaluate information on early childhood through secondary education.

The Research Process

Research is a process involving the following stages:

  • Identifying your topic and developing your research question
  • Finding background information about your topic
  • Locating and collecting a variety of sources 
  • Reading and evaluating what you have found
  • Writing your research paper or preparing your presentation
  • Citing the sources you used

Researchers may find themselves revisiting some or all of these stages throughout their work. Don't be frustrated if the process isn't straightforward - discovery and exploration are a part of research too.
