Description

First impressions are lasting, which is why it is essential that you have an engaging and well-structured background of the study that showcases your research and explains what your study proposes to accomplish. The background of a study is also one of the first parts of your paper that readers will encounter; therefore, it is crucial that they find it relevant and interesting enough to read the rest of your research. However, ironically, this is one sections that researchers have the least clarity about.

Designed for researchers who want to improve their manuscript writing skills, this well-paced course helps clear any doubts you may have. It will help you understand the meaning and purpose of this section, highlight the information you should include, and helps you create a structured, relevant, and effective background of the study. It also details the dos and don’ts to keep in mind when writing an ideal background of the study, one that will keep your readers hooked.
