Interesting Research Paper Topics
Here at TopResearchPapers.com we drift off to sleep counting the best topics for research paper projects — but not here at work, of course, we hasten to add unless it's December. But as always in the term-paper writing game, there are tricks and traps. By that we means there is a difference between
- Best topics
- Good topics
- Popular topics
The best topics are just that. They are neither popular nor not popular. They are sui generis, which is Latin for [coughs]. Regardless of topic, being the best means they are the best from your point of view and your instructor's point of view. And they are the best on their own merits.

As the list indicates, you might imagine that the merely good ones are a step down from the best ones. Maybe good for a C. But that's another trap. Turning a good topic into a great one is what TopResearchPapers.com is here for. We learned long ago that there's gold in them thar dross if you know how to tickle it, so she'll come out laughing, as the old gold-miner Howard said in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.
And now what about the most popular research paper topics?
Right. We were afraid you might ask about those.
Popular ones are not necessarily the best ones, by any means. In fact they rarely are. They often combine some aspect of a recent news event, whether scientific or political, with maybe a pop-culture icon thrown in for seasoning. One example of a hot topic from a few months ago was the apparent discovery of the Higgs Boson. But that glory faded when people realized the dang thing hadn't actually quite been found, which took the wind out of a good many theses.
In other words, popular research-paper topics are frequently the worst research-paper topics. Actually it is not like there is anything with the topics themselves. It's just that too many people want to write about them. In a word, the problem is one of novelty. Novelty wears off.
Instructors quickly get bored reading popular topics because there is only so much that is going to be said about them at a particular class-level, and students do have a habit of being on the same wavelength at a given class level — or so their instructors might be forgiven for believing.
