Before You Start Your Research


Researching Immigration Public Policy

Here are some suggestions to help you start your research:

1.  Make sure you understand your assignment. 

  • Is your intended topic within assigment parameters? 
  • Do you need to consult specific sources, such as a scholarly journal? 
  • Do you need to do an interview? 
  • Does the assignment require a bibliography and footnotes?

2.  Think about your topic. 

  • What are the keywords or key phrases that describe this topic? 
  • Do you need to consult an encyclopedia or handbook to become familiar with this topic?

3.  What type of information are you looking for?

  • Current information? 
  • Analysis?
  • Statistics?
  • Historical or survey information?
  • Periodical articles are more suitable for current information and very specific topics.  Books are better for a broad survey, historical outlook, and biographical information.  Statistics are often best retrieved from government or organizatonal web sites.

4. Document all sources.  Refworks (see the Writing & Citing section) can help you keep track of your citations and then produce a bibliography in the style sheet of your choice.
