Welcome! This guide is designed to help you get started with your final research project for your FYS with Dr. Clark. This may be one of your first research papers in college, so please don't hesitate to ask for help from either Dr. Clark or myself at any stage during the project.

The Research Process

Research is more than just searching for an answer and reporting that answer. For this kind of project, it's an iterative process of asking questions, understanding how others have approached similar questions, and eventually drawing your own conclusions on what you believe the answer to be. If this feels overwhelming, don't be afraid to ask for help at any point during the process!
