Narrowing a Topic

This short video demonstrates to students how to develop an appropriate topic for a research paper by considering goals, approaches, topic scope and helpful resources.

(Georgian College Library, 2016)

Example: Narrowing a Topic on Environmental Antibiotics

Why Narrow Your Topic?

• Helps to define your topic to a manageable scope

• Allows you to identify a problem that can guide your searching

Broad Topic:

Environmental Antibiotics

Still Broad:

Environmental antibiotics and waste management

Narrowed but still a bit broad:

Environmental antibiotics and waste management and hospitals

Narrowed Topic: 

Waste management of environmental antibiotics of hospitals in Canada.
