A.  What is research?

If you’ve watched any detective movies, you’ll find the job of sleuthing that leads to finding a culprit to a crime, somewhat interesting. When investigators interview their witness, read through files and reports, piece together clues and attempt to uncover criminals, their search is exciting.  The enthusiasm is often attributed to the purposeful excitement of discovering the unknown. Yet, the people who may find murder mysteries exciting may not be aware that academic research is in its essence similar in nature to all other research. Honest and inquisitive research writing demands attention to details. The research process can be tedious. However, if you see the work contributing to new knowledge and discoveries, you may find research work meaningful. As you consider what others have to say about your subject, you will become an expert on the subject in your own right. You will form an in-depth knowledge of the field that you care about, and you will be able to communicate that to your audience.

B.   Why should you document your sources?

As with all good research, some amount of library work is essential. When using library research, you must be careful to keep a thorough record of all your sources. Do refer to the annotated bibliography assignment for the necessary items needed for documentation. In your process of researching, you must not only document your sources, but also analyze and evaluate your sources. You must also draw from work done by other researchers to form, support, and extend your own opinions. You must practice intellectual integrity by presenting the work others have done, accurately, and by acknowledging your sources of information. You are expected to develop a thesis for your topic, do research on it, form a position on your findings, and develop argumentations in support of your thesis.

C.   What are the general requirements of this assignment?

You must make sure that this research paper is not a mere report, but a true research where you address societal concerns by exploring new ways of dealing with real life problems. The target audience must go away feeling that they’ve learned and discovered something new from your research findings. You must find a way of analyzing and studying your interest area from a fresh, new perspective. The research must allow for the readers to see a clear link between the findings and the analysis of the underlying issues, themes, values, assumptions or beliefs that control current ways of looking at the problem. You must find a way to persuade your audience to draw new meanings and new ways of seeing the world from the argumentations, analysis, and findings. The research paper should present your positioning on where you stand in the conflicting opinions of the field and how you intend to resolve it.  It is extremely important that your arguments build towards a cohesive way of seeing the field of study from a new-fangled perspective.

D. How do you pick a topic?

Know that your choice of topic is very important for your research and that your topic proposal will be evaluated for research worthiness before it will be approved for the research project. Research worthiness will be evaluated on a scale of how the topic appeals to the concerns of a common audience and if it would have impact on the target audience. Obviously, topics that are more controversial are usually seen as topics that are more appealing to the masses. Having said that, what that appeals to the masses may be areas that may not completely satisfy the research worthy criterion as these may be topics that have not been addressed in scholarly research or topics that have very little impact value. Such topics would certainly be disastrous for our purpose. Therefore, I suggest that you leave such topics out. Be aware that all topics that do not meet the criterion of research worthiness, will have to be reworked for a better topic.
