Value of a Research Strategy

Creating a research strategy is always a good idea. It will help you:

  1. Manage your time more effectively

  2. Focus on developing a good thesis statement;

  3. Formulate a research strategy what type of information do I need and what type of sources have I been asked to use;

  4. Provides you with the ability to discuss your information needs more clearly with librarians and others who will help you in locating the information you need; 

  5. Helps you start to develop a list of keywords and keyword phrases to use in your search; and

  6. Develop a method for managing the information you discover, incorporating it into your assignment, and properly citing the source of such information;  

Your Search Strategy Will Change

Your search plan will change as do your research.

  • You may find that too much information

  • You may not be able to locate the specific type of information you looking for

  • You need to be adaptable - refocus your research as needed
