One of the more difficult parts of the research process can be finding and refining a topic. The resources in this guide are intended to help you to identify potential topics for your paper, to find resources to explain a little bit more about your topic, and then to narrow or broaden that topic to an appropriate size.
When choosing a topic, try to pick something that is of interest to you on a personal level. That will make researching your topic much more interesting!
