Marine Biology for Summer Session: Home

This guide is to support the Summer Session's Marine Biology classes.

Tips for Scientific Success

  • Know alternative names/spellings for your topic
  • Your main focus is to ask a specific research question and answer it using evidence.
  • Start Early. Proper research takes time.  The better your research, the easier you will find writing the paper.  
  • Keep Track of your work. Make sure to have all data to proper cite your research. 
  • Take Time to Review. Edit and reflect on the work you have completed, BEFORE you hand it in.
