Writing your paper: resources

The purpose of this guide is to identify resources relevant to finding journal articles for your experimental project.

There are five steps involved in this process; they correspond to the tabs in this guide:

  • Step 1: select a topic and find good background information about it before trying to read articles;
  • Step 2: do some general background reading about your topic;
  • Step 3: search for journal articles and books;
  • Step 4: consult books about experimental design (if necessary);
  • Step 5: write the paper using appropriate footnote style.

I'm available to help you with your projects. Just call or send an email. Contact info is on the right.
