COMM 109 - Speech Communication - Prof. Vartuli Marin: Develop a Search Strategy

Search Strategy

It is a good idea to state your topic in the form of a question to stay focused on what it is that you are trying to explain or prove.

For example, if you want to do research on why video games are bad, you might ask the following research question: What impact do video games have a youth violence?

Using the correct words to search will help you find relevant information. Different authors and search tools use different words to describe the same concepts, so it is useful to have a list of similar and related terms in your arsenal when you set out to search for relevant information.
