After deciding on a topic for your research, you need to work out a specific research question or set of questions. If you are anything like me and a lot of other people, your first draft of a research question will need several revisions before it is actually a question that can be operationalised into a piece of research. What makes a research question researchable? The New Jersey Institute of Technology has a good explanation here.
