EXSC 200: Introductory Research Methods: Home

Research Process


The research process is just that: a process. A good researcher isn't someone that puts the right words in the search box the first time, it's someone who uses each search to improve the next one. By being aware that you'll circle back and perform tasks more than once, use more than one tool, and look at more resources than you actually use, you'll be better equipped to plan how long your research takes and pick the best sources.

Use this guide to get started with your research for EXSC 200!
