This guide was developed to assist students in ELI 540 by providing a foundation for research. 

Develop Your Research Topic

Below are links that can assist you in beginning the brainstorming process as you select your research topic.  Be sure to select a topic that interests you.

Once you have selected your topic, narrow your research by identifying:

  • how current your information needs to be,
  • if there are geographic restrictions on your research (is it localized to one country or region?),
  • what types of resources you need for your assignment (articles, monographs, websites, etc.),
  • and by applying the principles of the C.R.A.A.P. test.
