Consider the process youll use

The paper is your final product, but a research paper involves an extensive process before you can generate the product. If you focus too quickly on the end product, you may miss some of the important research steps and find yourself writing a paper without enough understanding of the topic to do an A+ job.

Browse over the rest of the steps suggested in this manual to get an idea of the process and think about how you'll approach each step. Start a journal or notebook and begin jotting notes about not only "what" you plan to do but also "how" you plan to do it.

For a quicker overview of similar research steps, and why they're important, see "Steps in the Research Process," (Hord, 1995 B) at the HCCS Libraries' Web site (
