Aided by their personal experiences and stories, the authors relay advice about what they wished they would have known about research and scholarship in their early academic careers. They provide a definition of research and discuss aspects of the research process including: types, methodologies, steps to success, and valuable research skills. The chapter concludes with sample cases to summarize the topics discussed in the chapter.
