How to Know That Your Research Problem is Good Enough

Conducting research without a substantial and good problem is a waste of efforts and time. To gain an effective response from your readers, it is important that you focus on selecting a problem or question that leads to contributory investigation. Here are some criteria or factors that can help you understand whether your problem holds importance or not.

Motivating and significant

You should go on exploring such a research problem that is not only motivating to investigate, but is also compelling for you, as well as a wider community. There should be a reason to take up some problem so it may end up supporting a decision through proper reasoning. Your problem should push you to find the answers to it.

Supportive of several views

If your chosen problem just supports one or two viewpoints, it may not be the right choice. It is critical that your problem supports the exploration of multiple viewpoints or perspectives. If your audience is unable to generate several views on your problem, then it is surely simple to take up. Go for a reasonable selection.

Feasible and researchable

Since it is a research problem, it has to be researchable. Sometimes, people end up with problems that do not offer them much to draw. It may also happen that a complex problem is not feasible to conduct because of the lack of primary research done in an area. Thus, it is preferable that you choose something that finds support from other resources.

Manageable and interesting

A good problem is always interesting for its researcher, as well as the audience. You can only work on it for a long time if you have developed interest in investigating it. Further, a good problem is manageable to be performed with available resources. It should not be too complex for you to handle.
