The following citation generators can create a base citation for your sources; however, always check the what was generated - technology generation of a citation is never as good as a human eye reviewing the citations for content and formatting correctness!
Also note that most of these tools will only let you format a limited number of citations without requiring a fee, or may require that you view ads in order to continue on with the tool.
Goal: How to write a focused research question
A good research question: answers a question related to your topic.
1. In order to write a good research question, you need to have knowledge about your topic - research the background, overview, scope of topic
2. A good research question should neither be too narrow or too broad:
Steely Library, Northern Kentucky University, nkulibrary. “Developing a Research Question.” YouTube, YouTube 28 July 2014, www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWLYCYeCFak.
Make sure it is clear, focused and complex!
Clear: who or what, don't leave room for ambiguity
Focused: specificity! Make your question as narrow as possible: specific cause or place or group, specific whatever you need
Complex: can this be looked up and answered in a few factual sentences? your question should be thought provoking!
