Planning and Writing
a Research Paper
Find a Topic and Get an Overview
To find a
topic that interests you, think about your subject matter or your topic in personal
terms. Finding an angle or imaginative slant on the subject can get you started.
Ask yourself questions like these:
- Can I relate this
topic to my work or personal life?
- Do I know something
about this topic that makes my perspective relevant?
- Do I have a new perspective
for a solution to a problem that might relate to the topic?
- Do I have questions
about this topic?
