Choosing a topic

It can be frustrating when you need to come up with a topic and you get a brain freeze. You want something cool, interesting, different. You're not alone. These databases provide topics that can get you started...

GQ Researcher provides original, comprehensive reporting and analysis on issues in the news. You may also want to click on the homepage for featured and recent reports.

Opposing Issues in Context provides multiple sides to current issues. Choose a category and browse the list below to find information about people, places, and subjects.

Litfinder Topic Finder takes the titles, subjects, and approximately the first 100 words from a subset of your top results and feeds them into an algorithm. Keywords shown in the graphics are those found most often in the text with your search term.  Sometimes a search might bring up expected connections but that's a great way to inspire you to make your own connections.
