Graduate Research Workshop

  1. 1. If you are a graduate student in the midst of your thesis or dissertation work here at Florida Tech, this guide is for you! Here you will find strategies, best practices, and resources to help with all phases of your research. The Office of Graduate Programs (Crawford 302, gradprog@fit.edu or 321-674-8137) is another excellent resource for students doing thesis and dissertation work here at FIT.

  2. 2. Your research question drives your entire project, and a thorough literature review can help you to identify your focus, principal researchers, persistent problems, and research methods for your own work. Reading the papers published in your area of interest demonstrates academic integrity, provides context for your research, and ensures that your results contribute to the body of knowledge. Read more about the literature review, managing data and documents, determining authority and context, and peer-reviewed information at http://libguides.lib.fit.edu/grwBasics.

  3. 3. Library Liaisons are excellent research partners for our students, faculty, and staff. Find the liaison for your program here: http://lib.fit.edu/services/liaisons.php, and then feel free to schedule research help for yourself.

  4. 4. When beginning your literature review, if you know the journal title, use A to Z Journals from the library website (http://lib.fit.edu) to see holdings in print or electronic form. To search multiple databases, use Summon, a comprehensive and cross-disciplinary resource. To find theses and dissertations, browse or search A to Z Databases for a pertinent database, or go to the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (http://www.ndltd.org/) for a list of open-access repositories. Academics rely on the works of others to complete their own, new research, and copyright ensures that authors' works are used fairly and ethically. Understanding the laws and rules surrounding reuse of information is quite important to the academic community that relies on the vast body of work for continued research.
