Research Cycle @ PolyU

The Research Cycle provides with the steps needed to plan, conduct and publish meaningful research. The visual presentation of the research cycle below shows the steps that are typically involved in the scientific research process. There are four main stages: 

  1. Preparing Your Research
  2. Doing Research Project
  3. Publishing Your Work
  4. Publicizing Your Work 

The research cycle below shows how the Library can help you through the whole research process. It is important to note that doing research is not always a linear process. In reality you may need to revisit some stages and redo some processes throughout your project.
