THE PLANNING STAGE
The tutorials and articles in the Planning Stage will help students gain a better understanding of the
requirements, criteria, and skills needed to complete the research project.
The Planning Stage contains answers to questions such as: 1) How do I create a research project?;
2) What types of technology will I need to use to create a research project?; and 3) How do I tell
the difference between a scholarly vs. a popular journal / periodical? Information about all these
questions and more can be found in the tutorials of the Planning Stage.
Below are brief descriptions of each tutorial. Click on any of the
