Help with moving forward with your question, conceptualizing your research

Ask yourself: What do I already know about this topic? Where can I find additional background information? Is my topic too broad or too narrow? What point do I intend to make with my research question?

What are the key terms that describe my topic? What are some synonyms for those terms? Is my search statement too narrow or broad?

Start thinking about what type of resources I might need now and in future steps.
