The Research Process can be divided into a sequence of logical Stages, where overall progress moves from one Stage to the next.

TOPIC StageINFORMATION SEARCH StageANALYSIS & EVALUATION Stage →  SYNTHESIS, DRAFTING & WRITING Stage

However, the Research Process is  NOT STRICTLY LINEAR,  (i.e. not in a single direction only).

Activities can and will take place simultaneously in more than one Stage. For instance, even in the final Writing Stage it is possible that you locate more up-to-date information which necessitates you redraft some of your conclusions.

These stages and some the activities generally performed within each are illustrated below.
