      2. Stages
        1. Decide what to research
          1. Step1: Formulating a research problem
            1. identify your destination (what)
            2. Worth spending a great deal of time formulating the research question: useful and meaningful research questions;
            3. Establish current state of research on the topic by Literature Review;
            4. Why Literature review: purpose of research is to add to the sum of knowledge; research does not take place in a vacuum;
        2. Planning how
          1. Step2: Conceptualizing a research design
            1. explain how you will find answers to your research questions;
