Choose a topic

Choosing a topic is research

Before you search for articles, you have to choose a topic. You can use the databases below to test and develop your topic.

The best way to choose a topic is to be familiar with current conversations and debates in the news. 

This assures that there is a debate or research around the topic - you will be able to find sources on your topic.

As you explore your broad topic areas - take some time to write down keywords, controversies and specific scholars/researchers who deal with your topic.
