✓ Step 1. Check our Topic Selector to see the list of topics on companies that are eligible for the certification and reward. You can search for a topic by typing keywords in the search bar. Otherwise, you may directly search for a specific company and its topics offered.
Tip: check the box "available" to view the topics that analysts have not already reserved. You can find more on how to use the Topic Selector.
✓ Step 2. Once you have an idea of a topic for a company, go onto its page (e.g., American Airlines) and check the topics that have already been covered - this will help you avoid writing on a repeat topic!
✓ Step 3. With published analyses in mind, it is time to start thinking about the topic you want to write about. Make sure to select a topic that has a current impact. To help narrow down your topic, we suggest choosing an SDG and reading analyses on your topic of interest.
✓ Step 4. Once you have chosen a current issue you want to focus on and reserved the topic, you can begin your research!
✓ Step 5. Make sure to focus on a single topic with the right level of granularity.
