This chapter discusses the issue of how to develop a research question. This question is considered to be the most basic aspect of the study design, but it still receives little attention from prospective researchers. The discussion emphasizes the importance of having a clearly defined research question before starting a research project, and provides advice on how to turn an idea for research into a research aim.
