Research Paper Ideas: A List Of Controversial Topics

When you write, the main aim is to get people reading. A good way to ensure people’s interest is to start talking about something controversial. The more controversial the topic, the better it is. As a researcher, life is also easier when you are researching a topic that has proven to have heightened people’s emotions because there will be a lot of information available about it.

  4. Two persons have the same level of education but one is from an Ivy League university and the other from a community college. Who has a leg up in employment opportunities? Yes, you guessed right. Such is the way of the world and the injustice of it all makes for a good topic.
