This is an exciting process, but it can be frustrating. The first thing to do is get passionate about something -- some aspect of your field. You should read lots of articles -- recent articles -- and you will see that they all give background information and explain the progress that has been made and what kinds of research projects are missing from the literature.

For example, I am interested in the bioelectricity that is manipulated in Chinese medicine. Therefore, I know what new research needs to be done in the field. I know that we should experiment with electrical stimulation as a form of therapy -- and this is already being done -- but my knowledge of what is going on in the field enables me to know what a good topic is.

When you choose your topic, give the synopsis in a succinct way -- not extra phrases or sentences. Look at 10 different articles online and read the "abstract." That will show you what to do. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abstract_%28summary%29

What you are writing is not exactly an abstract, but this will help you. How long is your synopsis supposed to be?

:O I thought you weren't supposed to add outside links. haha. I am tempted to add a sparknotes one for someone else's thread. but I guess I shan't

Anywho, about dissertations, synopsis = summary of what you plan on doing. ~what part of solar energy you want to focus on, narrow down the topic to something "researchable" then focus on that. In the intro for my extended essay, I briefly mentioned my topic, its importance and implications on society, what I planned to investigate, and what I hoped to prove/disprove. ~400 words for me. done with it now.

hope that adds to Kevin's advice. and I'd really like to read your paper after you finish ^^

No, outside links are okay, but text from other websites is not. We often link people to helpful sites... it's important. And it's better to link people to a site than to paste text from the site into the forum. Your explanation here is clearer than mine, I think! Thank you!
