Your capstone project challenges you to explore a variety of information resources, read them and synthesize them into a document that captures your unique voice and perspective. These information resources should include, but are not limited to, the Fisheries/Wildlife sciences and Human Dimensions courses you’ve completed as part of your Master's program of study and peer-reviewed literature relevant to your capstone topic. If your capstone is based on new research data your final product should also include a thorough evaluation and interpretation of those data that is supported by your peer-reviewed literature review. You should be working closely with the three faculty members who comprise your graduate committee as you outline and write your capstone. This website serves as a resource to help you find and utilize all of the library and writing resources available to you through OSU.
* Evaluate your sources. Don't assume everything you find is true, accurate or timely.
* Keep track of the sources you find so you can document them accurately in your papers.
* If you don't get results using one approach, try another. Do not assume that nothing exists on the topic.
* Not everything is in the computer.
* Ask for help from a librarian if you get stuck or confused.
* Don't put all of your research off until the last possible moment. It won't be much fun.
