Research Process

Research Process Flowchart



Research Process steps:

1. Explore and define your topic

2. Search for information

3. Evaluate sources and analyze information

4. Cite sources and communicate (write paper, deliver presentation, etc.). 

This is not a completely linear process. Sometimes steps must be repeated, for example if a search strategy doesn't retrieve good sources.
