A research strategy will keep you focused on your topic. However, the most carefully crafted research strategy may require some revision as you work through the process and learn more about your topic and what information is available. Your research trail will help you keep track of the work you have already done and it will help you evaluate what works and what doesn't. The links and documents provided below will assist you with developing a research strategy and keeping a research trail. You can use any of these documents or create your own.
