Keys to Successful Research and Writing

View Full Description

Here, we take a break from the flow of the work to ask a question and consider the answers to:

What, in your view, are the key elements in the research and writing process, from the research topic to the final revisions of the research paper?

Which of these “keys” came easily to you and which ones did you struggle with? For those that required more effort, what caused the need for extra effort?

What can you do, looking forward to the remainder of your degree program, to help you breeze through assignments that come easily for you and to help you ease some of the stress on those parts of research and writing that you have more difficulty with?

Remember, no one is a perfect researcher and there is no standard of perfection in writing. Your professors have been in the world of research and writing for quite some time and yet it is still a learning process for all of us. The best we can do is try to continue to improve.Initial Post Due: Thursday, by 11:55pm, ET
