Forming a research question is the basis of any good study. It has been defined as the methodological point of departure of any given academic research in the social and natural sciences. The research will therefore answer the question that is posed. There are a number of attributes that will make a research question, ideal. A research question should be focused, relevant, novel and must have a minimum of two core concepts. The question should be feasible. This paper will develop a research question in drug addiction and criminal behavior and explain how aid question meets the criteria above.
