Welcome to UAB Libraries! How can we help? Do you need to:
Framing involves learning about all the context and subjects that surround your idea. To get started, you need to think about the words embedded in your idea.
Start where you are. Pick apart your research question if you haven't already.
Not everything written down is important to the investigation. Focus in on the most important...well, keywords.
Sometimes you may not need a word at all because it is implied in the effort itself. Some words need to be given more thought to see if they matter.
Every word you use can contain numerous other ideas. Maybe those ideas are more specific. Maybe those ideas are just ways to convey the same idea more precisely.
It's like a spider's web.
