Identify the Issues

One of the most difficult parts of the research process will be identifying the subtopics you hope to discuss in your research paper. Search for information regarding your general topic using the resources below and work like a detective to identify key themes. 

STEP 1: Check Reference Sources & Encyclopedias

Start by searching generally for your topic in these resources. They usually contain easy to understand information on a variety of subjects. You may need to search a few of these sources (if not all) to identify subtopics for your research paper. 

STEP 2: Search for Newspaper Articles

STEP 3: Search Google

Google can be a great place to find reports, government info and general background information. Carefully check who is publishing the information to ensure that it is information you can trust. 

Find government info using Google

  1. Head to Google
  2. Type search words related to your issue (e.g. canada workplace multiculturalism)
  3. Add: site:.gc.ca to the search box -- this will allow you to search only in government websites (e.g. canada workplace multiculturalism site:.gc.ca)

Find reports using Google

  1. Head to Google
  2. Type search words related to your issue (e.g. canada workplace multiculturalism)
  3. Add: filetype:pdf to the search box -- this will allow you to search only for PDF documents (e.g. canada workplace multiculturalism filetype:pdf)
