Getting Started on Your Research

Putting it all together

Now that you are deep into your research, have gathered facts, ideas, and concepts, it is time to put it all together and write your paper.  As you synthesize all your research you may find you need to gather some more information to clarify your thinking and your own ideas.  Remember, this is not uncommon.  Research is not a one way process but requires going back and forth between the various research steps. 

Need help?

  • We strongly recommend visiting the Writing Center.
  • The reference librarians, Jane and Trisha, are also available to help with putting it all together.
