Even for research experts, it is nearly impossible to go from topic to a well-designed research question without looking up basic information about the topic. Background research will give you a foundation for your research and an overview of the basic ideas and concepts associated with your topics. As you research, keep an eye out for:

  • New concepts
  • Important people
  • Keywords
  • Sources that are cited.
