Research Steps

5 steps to successful research

  1. Find a focus: Develop a manageable topic - not too broad, not too narrow.  Frame your topic idea as a question.  For example: What is the impact of the recession on public housing projects?
    • Craft a thesis statement: The thesis statement is a position, an assertion or opinion in need of explanation.
      • identify needed information: Decide what books, reference sources, and articles will help you thoroughly research your subject.  Consider current books, eBooks, articles, and decide if you need to interview experts on the subject.
        • Create your research strategy: List keywords, synonyms and related terms, subject terms, and descriptors for your research.
          • Review your findings: Look at the quality, quantity, and relevance of the results.  Does your research support your thesis?  Are you finding relevant facts and quotes?  Identify the gaps.  Ask yourself: What else do I need to know?  What seems to be missing?
