Now that you have had a chance to explore your topic and get background information, it is time to start your research, right? Well, not quite. Often, before you get started, it is a good idea to form a research question before you start searching for articles or books on your topic. By forming a research question, your research will be more focused, will have more depth, and will have room to grow and change.
When you are turning your topic into a question, there are several things to consider. Taking these things into consideration will help you focus your research.
Think of your research question as a steering wheel, but don't worry if you have to take a detour! Remember, research is not a straight line.
