Before You Start Your Research

  Researching Minorities in the Workplace

 This guide was originally developed for courses in the School of Management and Labor Relations (SMLR).  It can be used by all Rutgers students doing research on this topic, which spans the fields of public policy, sociology, psychology, business, law, and labor relations.

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) Are you looking for current information or analysis or statistics?  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.

Make sure that, as you find new leads and articles, you 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.
