I have not finished my last paper yet, but I already have the title on my master thesis. It will be something like “What is Happiness? – A Historical Review and Integrative Approach”. The paper will go through different kind of theories about happiness, and how they can be measured and used in psychology research.
It will be fun to write. This time, I go my own way.
Usually, the title should be constructed last… since content often change in research reports. But I am not like the usual researcher. I enjoy having a complete idea in my head to begin with, instead of just a research question. The reason I will write about this topic (what is happiness) is the lack of happiness theory in many research reports, even though they are ultimately about happiness.
