Psychology and Counseling Library Research Guide: Topic

This is a tutorial for psychology and counseling research in the library.


How do I decide what to write about?

Choosing A Topic

  • Your topic should interest you.
  • Do some preliminary research before final selection to find out the scope of what has already been done.
  • It should be significant so you can add to important knowledge in the field.
  • It should be specific to limit the field of investigation to a manageable level.
  • But not so specific that nothing has been done.
