Research is not the mere compilation of information about a topic, but an inquiry that seeks answers to a specific question. To achieve a viable topic, focus on a single, specific research question. Sometimes a research question is stated in the form of a thesis statement or hypothesis. A research question focuses on just one aspect of a topic, and a topic is only part of a broader subject area. It is good to keep these levels in mind when looking for various kinds of information.
