On Saturday, 18th November 2017, Dr Andreas Meiszner led a webinar on The Research Problem Statement to an appreciative group of DBA students from across the globe.
As one of the first steps in developing your Doctoral Thesis proposal, the research problem is the starting point of the research process. Dr Meiszner highlighted the identifiable aspects of a research problem: something is broken, it has a cause and effect relationship, and there are initial observations and evidence mentioned. Although it seems simple, it is complex and takes time.
From establishing our research problem we can then develop our research thesis proposal. This is followed by the myriad of steps through the approvals, supervisor matching, ethical approval, research and delivery of our final thesis for viva voce examination.
The Doctorate Hub team will be holding live webinars as part of a suite of services available to Doctoral students and Post-Doctoral researchers in coming months. The next webinar topic will focus on the Structure of a Doctoral Thesis and led by Dr Nii Amoo. So watch this space for the time and date.
We welcome your thoughts on topics that would be of value to you.
Feel free to explore the Doctorate Hub and, if you haven’t already, register for the Doctoral Thesis Discussion group under the Training area. Here we can exchange idea and support each other throughout our Doctoral journey.
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-reviewed journals.
