Handout: Research Journal

by Megan Stark, University of Montana

This is a multi-page Research Journal that was created to support students in taking multiple steps in their library research, including identifying their existing knowledge about a topic, formulating keywords and evaluating sources. It was designed for first-year college students, but is easily applicable to other levels. This resource will assist students as they brainstorm and formulate a research question, and then guide them through the process of research as inquiry.
