The Information Cycle
Most information comes to us through a process we call the information cycle (or knowledge cycle).
Information evolves and changes over time. A single noteworthy event or performance can be related in different forms, through different media, and with different focus. The diagram below charts the information cycle as it moves through different forms of media.
Download and read the short chapter attached below, to better understand how research methods develop out of the information (or knowledge) cycle.
