Abstract

The authors reflect on the criteria of effective topics that get published in the journal. They state that effective topics allow researchers to pursue an interesting direction that ignites and maintains curiosity, uncovers actionable insights, and builds an ambitious study. They talk about several topics that had an ambitious scope, such an an examination of social capital and career success, and topics that touch upon multiple perspectives. They recommend against topics that are too familiar.
