Research and writing
Before you start, make sure to apply for funding to offset some of your costs.
We know that you are excited and ready to dive into your research topic, but as you add to the world's body of knowledge, be proactive with engaging the standards of academic and research integrity to avoid unknowingly (and knowingly) taking part in academic misconduct.
Becoming familiar with intellectual property and what it means for you, your supervisor and your research project can also avoid complications in the long run.
If you are not sure how to get started with your research:
- your supervisor is always there to help with your research topic, research method and the general practice in your field;
- The Student Success Centre can help your literature review and/or proposal.
- The Research Office has some helpful tips for being a researcher.
We have also put together some thesis guidelines for traditional thesis and information on building a thesis.
