Research Questions For Dissertation Literary Analysis Essay On Of A Salesman
I have intro, objectives, scope, contributions and structure in that section.They're all very short sections (2 paragraphs or so).In hubby's thesis we've (I mean I here as he's done the actual research and I've told him how to lay it out) really stressed the research questions, in the intro, then each chapter has a cover page - which has 'overview of the chapter', 'contribution to the field' and 'structure of this chapter' and this is all repeated again in the discussion.
and I don't really have an explicit 'contribution to the field section' - I just point out the gap in the literature and say what my thesis is going to cover if you know what I mean contributions - I have a small section in the intro of each chapter that bullet points the contribution of each chapter...Glad to help 8-) The abstract was virtually the last thing I wrote.But before I wrote it I read Dunleavy's book, and he was very clear that, above all else, you should stress your contribution to knowledge in the abstract. It does look really good when you sum it up like that too. Sneaks, I have an intro section for each chapter, a bit like your hubby's cover page...I chose not to give it a separate subheading as I felt I would just be repeating myself again.I would be interested in other view points as I have yet to submit myself ;-) Hubby's put the research questions in the intro, and then again in the discussion (to say how he addressed them) and there is also a 'contribution to the field' section in his intro.and then I go over it again in the conclusion section.I will then summarise all the contributions in the conclusion chapter, and probably discuss what implications each have to the field.With the contribution to knowledge I have included this in the final discussion.For each area, I have discussed my findings in relation to the broader area and then at the end re-stated what I found (noting the originality).Thanks all - I'm jumping ahead of myself a bit here, especially with the second question but they've been on my mind.Any suggestions greatly received My research questions were in the last section of my lit review entitled ' Aims and Objectives of the Thesis'.
