Topic too narrow? Not finding research resources? Try the following:
- Go BIG! Your topic may be too specific. For example if your topic is first year female college students and stress, broaden to college students and stress.
- Think of similar or parallel topics
- Keywords - go back and brainstorm more keywords for searching. You may just need to find the specific terms that refer to your topic.
- Rethink your topic - Sometimes your topic may be too new and there may be very little scholarly research published on your topic yet.
