Before you begin searching for a magazine or journal article, it is a good idea to do some brainstorming in order to focus the topic. Try the following:
1. Write down your topic as a statement or question.
For example, if you are interested in media and its effect on the female self-image, your question would be: "How does media affect the female self-image?"
2. What are the most important words or main concepts in your question?
3. What are some synonyms or alternate forms of the the key terms that describe your question?
