Why do we research?

Research helps people make well-informed decisions.

It is important to use reliable sources when writing a research paper or making well-informed decisions. Research is fact-based and needs to come from a variety of good sources. Search results found through Google may or may not be good. You need to learn to evaluate the information that you find.

Writers must often research in order to write knowledgeably and thoughtfully about a topic. Persuasive research requires you to take a stance and provide evidence that supports your belief.

 

Why do we have to cite resources?

People must always document information to avoid plagiarizing someone else’s work. Stealing others work is equivalent to intellectual theft.

Research:

The problem with research is that students want to create the question first and then find the research to support the question. Instead of first finding information and then developing the question.
