My Own Research, Research Question:
Research problems can be found everywhere and anywhere. But the researcher must be careful in choosing a topic. The research must ask important questions as well as create new information. Before beginning any research: look around, do background seeking, look in reference books or on the Internet for a topic that interest you and would present a good topic to research.
Once you have chosen a topic, make sure you fully understand what the question is and what you expect to find. Language is very important when writing the research. Be direct, simple and clear when stating the research problem. Limit your study to a manageable size.
Often, when writing the paper, you will have to rewrite it several times. Each rewrite will make your words clearer and paper more concise. Using a computer to type your paper will be a big help. Spell-check, grammar check, storage and retrieval, and easy changes will help in the speed and correctness of your paper.
Each research problem can be broken down into smaller subproblems. Each of these subproblems will add up to the research statement. Be clear with each subproblem and the interpretation of the data presented.
