Research Log

Assignment Description

Research Logs help students document their research strategy and keep track of where they found their sources. Instructors can require students to turn this document in with their papers. Adapt the attached paper assignment for your class, or use some of the web-based solutions below. Research logs are also a great way to help students collaborate as part of group research projects. Instructors can consider asking each student to mark their contributions. The Find Articles guide is useful for this assignment.
