Q: Is the below-mentioned research title a good one?
Impacts of social media influencers to the health of obese students in Lipa City Colleges school year 2020-2021.
A good title should be interesting and descriptive enough to catch the reader’s attention. It should also contain keywords that will show up in relevant searches.
While it is difficult to determine whether your title is truly reflective of your study without reading the manuscript, we can say that the title is fairly informative but needs to be corrected for typology and grammar. Ideally, the topic, method, and sample or study material should appear in the title. Your title indicates the topic and sample, including the timeframe, but the missing information is the type of study (e.g., survey-based analysis and quantitative analysis).
The given title can be corrected as below. (Insert the study type or approach in the blank.)
Impacts of social media influencers [on] the health of obese students in Lipa City Colleges: [A ___ study for] the school year 2020–2021
[A ___ study] of the impacts of social media influencers [on] the health of obese students in Lipa City Colleges [for] the school year 2020–2021
Please note the corrections for preposition use and the en dash (–) rather than the hyphen (-) for the year range.
Finally, do make sure to check if there is a word or character restriction for the article title and make adjustments if required.
