Focused Research: Using Research Plans
***Note*** CGS will vote on the proposed amendments to the Constitution at the beginning of the May webinar (before our speaker), which constitutes the regular May meeting (May 9, 2022). To accommodate this, the meeting will begin at 6:45, with the vote at 7 or shortly thereafter. If you wish to vote on the Constitution amendments, please make sure to sign up for the May meeting.
Do you feel like your research just goes in circles, that you keep finding the same information, or you have brick walls you can't solve? Being focused in your research will bring better results. This can be done by using research plans. I will explain how to create and use a research plan to help keep you on focus in your research and get better results
