Writing a Research Paper: Generating Preliminary Ideas

  • Talk with your professor or another informed & interested listener
  • Skim preliminary sources to determine what is "out there" (i.e., textbook, encyclopedias, Unicorn at our library)
  • Consider personal areas of concern/ interest/expertise

Next you will need to narrow your subject.
