Research paper topics are generally given out by the professors and teachers to the students during their course. Sometimes the students are given the option of coming up with their own topics. The topic selected for the research is of high importance. It should be a topic that is simple, interesting, and at the same time relevant to the purpose of the exercise. The topic should also be the one that gives the students enough to write on. Giving too broad or too narrow topics would be a mistake as this puts the students in tight spots with regard to the essay. Too broad topics mean there are too much data and no clue as to how to begin and end the paper. Too narrow means that there is hardly anything to research upon. So, the selection of the topic is of utmost importance.
