Outline a purpose statement
To find and cite your sources
Your topic is the stepping stone of your research, and one of the first things to determine when initiating your study. It is key to creating a framework of a multitude of key steps, each taking a considerable amount of time, effort and resources. Then, of course, comes the important question of what is the ideal process to follow to put you and your research on the path to success.
This training course is designed to support the first three chapters of your research proposal. It teaches you how to confidently draft a research topic, decide upon a credible research title, and formulate a problem statement that will demonstrate how your research will contribute to the body of knowledge in your field. This course will help you fit everything together to create a compelling manuscript and lead you in the right direction to achieve your research goal.
