The 5 W's

  • WHO  Who is affected by the topic or issue? Do you know of organizations or institutions affiliated with the topic?
  • WHAT are there a range of issues and viewpoints to consider?
  • WHERE is your topic important: at the local, national or international level? 
  • WHEN is/was your topic important? 
  • WHY do you have an opinion about the issues involved?

And remember to include your thesis statement!

Your thesis statement is the main point and central idea of an essay or research paper. It's typically a single sentence that sums up the purpose and main argument of your writing. It is the most important part of an academic paper. A thesis statement defines the paper's goals, direction, and scope. It is supported by evidence.

Picking a Topic is Research
