Write Your Research and Analysis

We’ve mentioned it before, but one of the best ways to catch errors, notice things that were overlooked, and see errors in your logic is to write up your research.

It’s not the end of the world if your grammar is not perfect–just make certain that what you write is understandable and clear.

It’s not the end of the world if your citations are not quite perfect–just make certain that you clearly indicated what source you used and how you accessed it.

    “how you accessed it” is very important. While going through my notes and copies of documents, I find that I don’t recall how I found the information, particularly images found online.

      Yes it is. Some people avoid citation altogether for fear of doing it incorrectly. It’s not a huge problem if the format isn’t technically correct–as long as all the details are there.
