Finding Information in a University Enviornment

Developing a Research Question

While there are many ways to develop a research question and establishing a process, the one we’re going to cover today involves three simple questions:

  • What am I interested in?
  • What don’t I know about it?
  • Why do I want to know that? 

Another way to frame it is through the phrase:

I am studying ______ to find out who/how/why ______ in order to understand who/how/why ______.
