Tips for starting your research

Understand the assignment

  • What type of assignment is it? Research paper, personal essay, opinion paper, or other?
  • How long does the paper need to be?
  • Do you need to use specific types of sources such as newspapers, magazines, scholarly journals or websites?
  • How many sources do you need?
  • Which citation style are you going to use for your bibliogrpahy? MLA, APA, Chicago or other?

Choose a topic

  • Think about a topic that might interest you, you know something about, or you feel strongly about.
  • Find a topic in your textbook, a class reading or class discussion.
  • Still stumped? Look at today's business news in the
    New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Huffington Post, BBC News, or Google News
    and find a story that interests you and do more research.

Develop Keywords

  • Keywords are the terms you use to search for information on your topic.
  • Two or more words (a phrase) should be searched in "quotes" for better results.
  • Try synonyms, related words, and broader terms if your first search doesn't yield the right kind of results.
  • Use AND to limit your search and OR to broaden.
