Top tips: сфокусированный проблемный вопрос Choice of research question – make it clear – make it focused – make it relevant and important
Examples of Bad and Good Research Questions Bad Question: Politically correct language Detergents in the environment Acid-base chemistry Prime Numbers Gravitation Good Question: The reason for the adoption of “politically correct” terms in the USA The effect of detergent toxicity on certain bacterial strains The effects of sugar-free chewing gum on the pH in the mouth after a meal Prime numbers in cryptography Orbital determination of a minor planet
Sample Questions History: To what extent did the Florida teachers’ strike of the 1960’s change the educational and professional climate in that state? Science: To what extent is the Chernobyl nuclear accident still affecting agriculture and public health? Mathematics: Under what conditions does the Newton-Raphson method fail? Politics: To what extent did the US’s involvement in Grenada alter American perception and presidents’ use of the War Powers Act? Art: To what extent is the kimono an art form or merely Japanese traditional costume?
Top tips: выбор темы Сhoice of topic is everything – do something you are genuinely interested in
Top tips: источники The best essays have a range of sources – newspapers, journals, interviews, books etc. Primary and secondary sources in balance
Top tips: ссылки на источники Ссылки на источники
Working habits and tips Keep your sources at a distance Talk to your sources – don’t let them dictate to you Remember that they are not absolute truths – you should evaluate them not let them control you Photocopy the title page of every book you borrow from the library This will save you valuable time later on – you will need the full title, place and date of publication later on. Start building the bibliography right away Time saving! Once you quote someone put in a reference right away This way you won’t have to look for the source later on And remember... use footnotes!

Bad Questions and Topics How did the Versailles treaty affect world history? too... ? How was Jónas frá Hriflu dressed at his funeral? too... ? Who was Adolf Hitler and what was he like? too... ? Why was Joseph Stalin so cruel? too... ? Would Germany have gone to war without Hitler? too... ? Governmental phone taps in 1990s Iceland: extent and purpose. too... ?
The Research Question Is it suitable? Can it be asked and answered? Is it worthwhile to answer? Dangerous research questions: Those that are too wide. Those that are “obivous.” Those that you can not answer due to lack of sources available to you. Those that are too narrow. Those that are subjective. Those that are purely hypothetical (pseudo history)
Forms of Research Don’t restrict yourself to a narrative! The point of a research essay is not simply to tell a story – regardless of whether it has a happy ending or not. Comparitive essay Compare and contrast examples A and B with regards to question X. Bibliographical essay What has the historiagraphical development been like in a certain narrow topic.
