Once you have identified a problem, the research problem statement is one of the first steps in developing a Doctoral Thesis proposal. It is the starting point of the research process. Identifiable aspects of a research problem include something is broken, it has a cause and effect relationship, and there are initial observations and evidence mentioned.
Developing a research problem statement from an identified problem isn’t easy but is an essential step in the thesis proposal process. To assist in the what and how, the Doctorate Hub team will be holding a live webinar on The Research Problem Statement led by Dr Andreas Meiszner on Saturday, 18th November 2017, 7pm UK time. The webinar will cover how to identify and develop a research problem statement. For the link to join us: Click here.
For reference, the presentation on The Research Problem Statement will be available at the Doctorate Hub in days following the webinar.
We welcome your thoughts on topics that would be valuable to you or others going forward. For example, are there any areas that your doctoral modules, text books or articles you’ve read don’t address adequately for your research journey? We are looking to provide a range of topics of use to Doctoral students and graduates in coming months.
Feel free to explore the Doctorate Hub and register for the Doctoral Thesis Discussion group under the Training area, if you haven’t already, where we can exchange idea and support each other. The website is being progressively populated with valuable information to support our Doctoral journeys and beyond as many of us continue undertaking post-Doctoral research in our organisations or seek to publish in peer review journals.
We will start at 7pm UK time sharp, so please log in a few minutes before in readiness.
See/talk to you all soon.
