Deciding on a topic
Often finding a topic can be the most challenging part of writing a research paper, here are some ways to choose and narrow down a topic.
- What am I interested in?
- What do I want to know?
- What problems need to be solved?
Too specific/ not specifc enough?
- Be reasonable
- Start wide and focus/narrow doesn your question
- Try to make an 'idea pyramid'
- Still having trouble? Ask Dr. Chapman or a librarian
