Topic is within guidelines and requirements of the assignment
Topic is not too broad or too narrow
depends on the length of the paper

debatable imortant controversial 
Topic is interesting to you
picking an interesting topic will make the research process more funand result in an engaging piece others will want to read
Topic is something you vaguely know about
writing about something you are not familiar with can lead to a uniqueperspective to the topic and lead to discovery of new informationwhich is the point of research
Topic is not common
a simple common topic can lead to plagiarism, the topic shouldinvolve critical thinking on the writer’s part
