Introduction to Research (mini modules)
Conducting Library Research
Sage Research Methods Online contains over 800 books, reference works, journal articles, and videos that provide information about research methods and design. The Library provides an Introduction and Tutorial to SAGE Research Methods.
SAGE Research Methods can help provide context for writing a research question, conducting a literature review, choosing a research method, collecting and analyzing data, and writing up the findings. This database includes a range of methods commonly used in social and behavioral sciences, technology, science, medicine, and the humanities.
Reading Research Articles
The kind of reading you do during your degree program varies, but much of it involves reading journal articles based on primary research.These articles are important because—as opposed to books—they showcase new and emerging developments in the field.
An annotated bibliography is a combination of the words "annotation" and "bibliography." An annotation is a set of notes, comments, or critiques. A bibliography is list of references that helps a reader identify sources of information. An annotated bibliography is a list of references that not only identifies the sources of information but also includes information such as a summary, a critique or analysis, and an application of those sources' information.
Doctoral Success Skills
Resilience refers to the quality of elasticity: the ability to bounce back to a comfortable shape, after being stretched or compressed in new and challenging ways. In order to recover from setbacks (which are unavoidable), to adapt to change (also unavoidable), and to keep going, we all need to be somewhat elastic.
Evaluate your habits, reduce time-wasting activities, set realistic goals, and regain control of your time.
