Taking notes for research papers

This slideshow is designed for students in GS10 classes embarking on their research journey.

Selecting a note-taking method that…

  • includes space for your voice
  • captures context
  • and documents all elements needed for a CMS citation (including DOI and/or accession number)

…can make your research experience more effective and efficient, helping your understand your topic more fully, recognize patterns more quickly, and avoid mistakes that can waste valuable time having to re-find a source for a quote or re-find the context in which the quote was made.

For CMS sample citations, check the Chicago-Style Citation Quick Guide.
