Sociology: Research Process

Please direct comments to

Research is a Process

The research process can take many different paths and the map below represents the process.  The black line represents the traditional path that the research process takes, while the red line shows a free-flowing research process, one that jumps back and forth from different resources.

Use the map images to explore the different parts of the research process by rolling over the images to see how books, articles, and websites can be used in your research.
