EVALUATE YOUR OWN RESEARCH QUESTION
Evaluate the quality of your research question and the ease with which you should be able to answer it.
1. Does the question deal with a topic or issue that interests me enough to spark my own thoughts and opinions?
2. Is the question easily and fully researchable?
3. What type of information do I need to answer the research question? For example, to answer the research question, "What impact has deregulation had on commercial airline safety?" will require certain types of information:
· Statistics on airline crashes before and after
· Statistics on other safety problems before and after
· Information about maintenance practices before and after
· Information about government safety requirements before and after
4. Is the scope of this information reasonable (e.g., can I really research 30 online writing programs developed over a span of 10 years?)
5. Given the type and scope of the information that I need, is my question too broad, too narrow, or okay?
6. What sources will be able to provide the information I need to answer my research question (journals, books, Internet, government documents, people)?
7. Can I access these sources?
8. Given my answers to the above questions, do I have a good-quality research question that I actually will be able to answer by doing research?
Formulating a Research Question
All research begins with a question derived from a general topic that piques your interest, often through general reading, topical discussion, lectures, family experiences, etc. In many cases the general topic is set by your Instructor.
Generally, the question should be:
The question should have some bearing on the topic and remain within the limits that were set beforehand.
Choose a topic that interests and stimulates you otherwise searching could become tedious.
3. Focused and specific.
The question should not be too broad or vague. You can however begin with a broad question and then narrow it down to be more specific. You can narrow the question down by: – a particular aspect, e.g., economic, psychological – a particular time period – a particular event e.g., 9/11, rape, divorce – a geographical area – gender – age group
The result should be a question for which there are two or more possible answers. The following examples illustrate how to narrow broad topics to create focused research questions.
Broad topic Narrowed topic Focused topic Research Question

You should get a feel for what materials will be available to you. Know what the Library has to offer in the way of books and standard reference sources, indexes/databases, and services to acquire resources that are not in-house.
Sometimes your question seems doable at first but when you begin your research, it turns out not to be the case. Because most often you are doing a literature search for the results of previous research (as opposed to original research), it is recommended that you do a preliminary search to test if you can get enough material, and then, if necessary, revise your question.
