Make sure your research title describes (a) the topic, (b) the method, (c) the sample, and (d) the results of your study. You can use the following formula:
[Result]: A [method] study of [topic] among [sample]

The following parameters can be used to help you formulate a suitable research paper title:
-The purpose of the research
-The narrative tone of the paper [typically defined by the type of research]
-The methods used

Effective titles in academic research papers have several characteristics.

1. Indicate accurately the subject and scope of the study.
2. Avoid using abbreviations.
3. Use words that create a positive impression and stimulate reader interest.
4. Use current nomenclature from the field of study.
5. Identify key variables, both dependent and independent.
6. May reveal how the paper will be organized.
7. Suggest a relationship between variables which supports the major hypothesis.
8. The title is limited to 10 to 15 substantive words.
9. Use correct grammar and capitalization with all first words and last words capitalized, including the first word of a subtitle. All nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs that appear between the first and last words of the title are also capitalized.
