Research is a systematic study of a subject least explored until one knows more about it. One undertakes research either to solve an ongoing issue, answer a question pending for long or out of a desire to add one's original thoughts to the existing ocean of knowledge. 

Once we know what research is about, we should ask an important question: How do we choose a research topic? After all, the success or failure of the study also depends on the selection of an issue. So, here are a few steps to guide you for selecting a suitable topic.

Skimming the literature:

The research asks for a lot of reading. Thus, to complete a Ph.D. within the stipulated time, it is essential to polish your reading skills. One of the best ways is to skim through the text relevant to your field. Skimming means quickly glancing at a text, article, journal or any other material to get a general idea about the themes discussed in it. It allows you to peep at the author's ideas and opinions on various topics, eventually giving you a foundation to build a through process. At this stage, do not use a filter. Keep browsing as much content as you can.

Scanning the resource:

Once you have gained a broad idea about the field you want to research, you can take a step further. Begin by reading books, which cover your area of interest and simultaneously jotting down important points. It will help you narrow down to a specific subject. Utilize nearby libraries, digital mediums or bookstores to get better clarity.

Once done with the reading, make a map of essential keywords marked by you. Check their usage and demand in your field at present and the estimate the scenario after three to five years. You can mix and match the keywords to explore all the possible methods. It will help you decide the topic you wish to research. At this stage, you will have a case to contemplate on, though not so perfect.

To ensure that the selected topic can be finalized, you will have to answer following questions:

  1. Is there enough data written and available on the topic you plan to research?
  2. Would you be able to complete your Ph.D. within time, or the topic is too vast to finish?
  3. Is there a scope for you to contribute to your field using this topic?
  4. Is the topic recent? If yes, it is possible that resources will not be available. Would you still like to go ahead?
