THE RESEARCH PROCESS
There is not one right way to do
research.
This guide proposes a way of thinking
about the process, especially for
academic research
But ultimately you will develop your own
personal approach.
This is a general research model, made up
of four stages.
Start
Explore
Focus
Finalize
You will progress through each of these
stages.
But it is not necessarily a linear process.
You may need to jump from one stage
to another
then circle back again later.
Although this can be frustrating, realize
that it is all part of the process.
And the process will take you where
you need to go.
