This guide will help you get started with the research process during your first year at UniSA and UniSA College.

You will already be doing research as part of your everyday life without realising it. Every time you collect, organise and analyse information to learn more about a certain topic you are conducting research.

The research process

You already search for information everyday! Whether you are trying to find a store for the latest shoes, a street name in Google Maps or information about your favourite TV show, information is everywhere and learning to find it effectively will save you time.

Searching for information to support your University assessments is similar, however there are techniques and tips you can use to find the right information when you need it.

The research process is not linear, move back and fourth between stages as you discover more about your topic.
