ENGL 1101: Composition & Rhetoric: Get Started

The Research Process: Pre-Research

What is the research process? Where and how do you begin? What do you need to do to get from the moment when you’re given the assignment to turning in your final paper?

Research doesn’t have to be daunting. Think of research as a process of discovery. With a research plan and an open mind, you will collect new insights and develop key academic and professional skills.


This video will introduce you to the purpose of research and present strategies to successfully begin your research journey.
