How to Conduct Basic Research

The act of conducting systematic research facilitates the eventual success of the entire essay. Without research, a student’s essay is doomed and will eventually fail since the facts and points presented are based on unfounded knowledge. Characteristically, the essay appears as if it was haphazardly finished with no initial preparation at all since there is no background information and other sources presented in the written work. This is one of the causes of the essay’s demerits, and students must avoid this from happening—after all, the essay is one of the integral aspects that make up the overall academic standing of the students.

Most students find it hard to conduct a research especially if they still do not have a clear-cut purpose and direction in writing: what they are exactly looking for and where to find it. In this case, students can at least prepare an essay outline beforehand so they will know what to look for. This will save the students a lot of time because they will only spend their time looking for the kind of information they will exactly need for their essays. Once they have come up with a list of information they want to explore deeply, they can start visiting libraries that have more books and research materials about the topic. There are some libraries that specialises on a certain subject area. The students may also look for the sources recommended by their professors, if ever there are any. Once they have found the resource center, it will be easier for the students to look for the source materials they need since all materials found in a library are valid—they just have to look for the books with the latest editions to obtain more updated information.
