The Investigative Research Process

You can facilitate the research process by asking the right questions before you begin. Interviewing the person asking for the research also gives you an opportunity to educate him or her about the kinds of information you can find, how long it takes and what it costs. The information you obtain during the interview might also shed light on how to start the research. This section of the CIR teaching Web reviews the research interview process, discusses the importance of obtaining identifying information and suggests strategies for getting started. It also provides a few canned examples of investigative research questions and answers.
