There are several ways you can take your topic/phenomenon and develop that into a research question. A very simple method is to use the acronym TAPP:
|Time - Is there a time period that interests you?|
|Aspect - Is there a particular aspect of the topic that interests you?|
|Place - Is there a specific geographic region or area that interests you?|
|Population - Is there a specific population that interests you?|
Good research begins with good keywords. Click on the image below to watch a brief video from the University Library at UNC Greensboro explains how to turn your research question into useful keywords. Transcript.
