Choose a Topic

Choose A Topic - Resources to help you choose a research topic.

Choosing a topic is the starting point of your research.  If possible, choose a topic that is interesting to you or is something you want to learn more about.

Do some preliminary research first to learn more about a topic. Having a better understanding of the topic helps you determine what concept or issue to focus on.

It's possible you may need to modify the topic as you discover what is or isn't available on it.
