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.
