Research design has been a major problem for early career researcher, especially PhD students. This paper discusses new approach to assist a researcher choosing their research topic based on previous papers/studies. Here we use open source tools (Vosviewer and Zotero reference manager) to visualize research topic under keywords "groundwater Jakarta" from close to 256 papers harvested from Google Scholar and Crossref scientific database. Using this approach we can identify the change of main research issues in groundwater resources from the 70’s to date. We also see the research flow path during the period and determine new interesting subtopics. Based on the result we believe that this technique is applicable for postgraduate students
