Picking Your Topic is Research

This video was created by NCSU 

What makes a good research question?

Consider these questions when formulating your research question:

  • Do you find the research topic interesting?
  • Is your question open ended?
  • Can you take a stand on your topic (compare/contrast, problem solve, etc.)?
  • Is your topic too broad, too narrow, or okay? 
  • Will you be able to find the resources to answer your question?
