Getting started in research: research questions, supervisors and literature reviews

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Objectives: Research can seem daunting, especially for trainees and early career researchers. This paper focuses on how to formulate and begin a research project such as the RANZCP Scholarly Project.

    Methods: We outline an approach to framing a research question, developing theses and hypotheses, choosing a supervisor and conducting a literature review.

    Conclusions: Through systematic planning early career researchers and other clinicians can plan and conduct research suitable for the Scholarly Project or other research activity.
