What are some research methodsWeegy:
I see you're procrastinating; not good. Well, here are a few topics that are interesting. Also, I'm not sure to what level you need help? Are you saying you don't know how to do the introduction, model, hypothesis or methodology, [ or do you just need some subject ideas? Anyway, I'll give you some ideas for topics and let me know if you need anything else.
First of all, your topic needs to be general, but not too broad. You'll need to word them accordingly, these are just some ideas:
1) What is the link between education level and ideology.
2) What is the link between Christianity and ideology.
3) What is the link between income level and ideology.
4) Is there a co-relation between age and voting tendencies.
5) Do peoples' ideology change as they age.
You don't want to be too specific with your topic. Remember, most people think the fewer the better, but the more sources you have the easier it will be to organize your paper with facts and specifics. Use bar charts, too. Also, at your school do you use SPSS? It will be very valuable because you can plug in information to chart trends and do cross-comparisons. You can also manipulate your dependent and independent variables. It's been awhile, but my Bachelor's Degree is in Political Science and I think one of my papers was on comparing education levels with particular ideologies. Do you have to get your Professor to approve your topics in advance? This sounds like a Political Science Scope & Methods Class, is it? Well, good luck and don't get stressed out. Also, at your college do you guys use JSTOR? You may already know, but that's a great place to get all sorts of peer-reviewed research and writings. If your professor is like most of them, he'll want all of your sources to be peer-reviewed for credibility. Don't use wikipedia and try to be cautious of these dot.com sites. Use dot.org sites whenever possible. Another tip, when you're putting in topics on JSTOR, ASK, or whatever search engine you use, put the topic in quotation marks and your returns will be fewer and very specific to what you're looking for. You may already know it, but this will save you lots of time from fishing through bookoodles of returns. ] Auto answered|Score .7233
