Developing your research topic

Find a topic

Use these strategies to help you choose a research topic if you are required to select your own and don't already have one in mind.

Make sure your topic meets the criteria required for your assignment (for example, a current event or related to a math profession).

Please note that broad topics will need to be narrowed down for a research paper (by brainstorming, performing background research, or discussing it with others). For example, 'cybersecurity' is too broad. A focused research topic within "cybersecurity" like, "raising awareness of security threats through cyber activism" is a better option.
