Formulating a Research Topic

Developing a research topic can at times be a daunting task. If you are struggling, our team of experts can provide a step by step guide on how to develop a feasible, novel, interesting and relevant topic that closes the gap in literature.

Here are some things to consider when choosing a research topic.

• WHY did you choose the topic? What interests you about it?
• WHO is affected? Who might publish information about it?
• WHAT is the current debate about the topic?
• RELEVANCE also known as the “so –what”. Findings from research must have the potential to advance scientific knowledge, policy, or guide further research.

We begin by conducting a thorough review of the literature to identify the gaps in the existing research. From there, we work with you to identify a specific research problem and develop a research question that is both relevant and manageable. We then help you narrow down your research topic by considering factors such as the scope of the study, available resources, and research methodology.
