 Im still a noob doing research but I can sum up a few lil things about it before u signing up for any Postgraduate courses.. Hope it helps.
 Those who have an idea to do Masters/ PhD, but do not know how to move on?

1. Finalized which area you are interested in. Im interested on Media Effects or Interpersonal Communication. How about you?  
2.You may have a tentative topic. Based on your topic, find key words . 
3. Search for journals, read related thesis and refer to chapter 5 (Further research).
       4. With reading knowledge, meet a few Profs and senior lecturers and tune their reliable      ideas pertaining to the topic. Have you done that?

 5. Then, finalized a few issues for the problem statement. What are the issues will be brought to PhD Studies? Have you? 

6. Find objectives based on the issues (problem statement). Have you? 

 7. I have read more than 30 articles and tabulated them and found a gap? Have you?

 8. Then, outline your frameworks.

 9. Then, consider about the ethical clearance and where I intend to get the data? How to access easily? So, I wrote a letter to a few companies to access the data. How about you?

 10. Find research designs, if can try to do a pilot study to find out whether the methodology which you have chosen reliable or not.

 11. Then write your research proposal based on your University or Faculty guidelines.
