Transcript

  • 1. The Logic of A Dissertation Proposal from http://www.doctoralnet.com
  • 2. Top Box: What is the problem your research will address?
  • 3. Once Filled In Ask yourself:
    • Is the problem easily described in a sentence or two?
    • 4. Is it set in a specific context?
    • 5. Can you gather your answers from a particular set of people?
    • 6. Do you have easy access to those people?
  • 7. Second Box: What questions to you want to ask.... OR....If you think you know the answers what hypothesis can you suggest?
  • 8. Once you have both boxes..... What is the relationship between the two? Do they address the problem from the same angle? Do your questions address the heart of the problem? Will you be able to find the answers? Are they interesting to you? Will they be interesting to others?
  • 9.  
  • 10. Now look at the relationship between all three boxes – will the questions in #2 of the people and under the circumstances in #3 build a convincing argument to others? Will this plan lead you to be an acknowledged expert on this topic?
  • 11. Finally, What are the topics that are needed in your review of literature?
  • 12. Do you cover the information needed to understand the context of the problem? Do you discuss what others have researched around that problem? Does your literature establish your questions as important? Are you asking questions where what you are measuring is discussed in your literature? Does your lit show other researchers used similar methodology? Do you discuss your methodological choices? Does each and every part of your literature link directly to something discussed in the other three boxes?
  • 13. If so..... Then you are ready to discuss it with your advisor or mentor from your university.
  • 14. We are – http://www.doctoralnet.com Providing tools for doctoral students to Finish their dissertations FASTER!
