I don't know what to research!
You are not alone - choosing a research topic is often the hardest part of doing research.
As you brainstorm, ask yourself these questions:
Also consider the type of information you are looking for. Different sources provide different types of information.
A Primary Source is original research, the first place a researcher publishes his or her findings. Examples: journal articles, conference presentations, technical reports, and laboratory or field data.
A Secondary Source discusses, explains, describes, analyzes, or summarizes primary sources. Examples: books and review articles.
A Tertiary Source explains, describes or analyzes a group of secondary sources. Examples: annotated bibliographies, entries in encyclopedias or dictionaries.
Since science builds on the research of others, Web of Science is a great tool for exploring a topic. Here are a few tips to help.
