Advice about getting started in research (Streitwieser 2009)

For IS students in the Next Steps workshop

Advice from Bernhard Streitwieser, Senior Research Associate at the Searle Center for Teaching Excellence, who has helped hundreds of students with their research proposals:

  • Start early
  • Write, rewrite, and write some more
  • Make generous use of all resources available at NU and elsewhere
  • Think carefully about the feasibility, manageability, doability of your project
  • Pick a topic about which, more than anything else, you are deeply passionate
