  starting with the below



3. In this chapter, the research process of your thesis is to be well-defined and described sequentially. Starting with (1) research preparation, research approach; process of the survey, concerning research design, participants/respondents, sampling procedure and survey design, sample plan, research instrument, method of analysis and the limitations are discussed in detail.

3.1. Research Approach ( 1 page)

Research approach is a plan and procedure that consists of the steps of broad assumptions to detailed method of data collection, analysis and interpretation. It is therefore, based on the nature of the research problem being addressed. The researchers choice of a particular research approach is governed by the nature of the research problems he/she wants to solve (Yin 1994; Merriam 1998). 

3.2. Research Design (2pages)

Research design represents the overall functional plan or blueprint (Babbie & Mouton, 2008) for the research project. Whereas research methodology refers to the standard set of tools, techniques, and approaches used for the purpose of collecting, analyzing and interpreting data by the researcher, the research design is the purposeful way in which such methods are linked together to address the research questions or reach conclusions. Tempering an appropriate research design is critical for the attainment of specified goals or objectives outlined for the research project. Therefore, the research design is ought to be trustworthy and reliable while being scientifically grounded (Cooper & Schindler, 2006; Churchill & Iacobucci, 2002). The research design refers to the overall strategy that you choose to integrate the different components of the study in a coherent and logical way, thereby, ensuring you will effectively address the research problem; it constitutes the blueprint for the collection, measurement, and analysis of data.




CHAPTER      4



4. This chapter analyses and interprets the data collected. The chapter discusses the results of the study. You can divide the chapter into the desired number of sections and sub-sections. Analysis is still a method or a tool being used to break down your findings.

4.1. Put Sample Main Heading

Here you can write the first part of your results and analysis section. For example, you can put here the demographic data analysis etc. You can divide it into as many number of sub-sections as required.

4.2. Put Sample Main Heading

Here you can write the second part of your results and analysis section. For example, you can put here main data analysis with the corresponding results etc. You can divide it into as many number of sub-sections as required.



5. This chapter contains an extensive coverage for discussion, interpretation and validation of the survey results. Further, the chapter delineates the discussions on the part of study limitations and prospectus for future research, and leads to a broad conclusion at the end of the chapter.

5.1. Discussion ( 2pages)

The purpose of the discussion is to interpret and describe the significance of your findings in light of what was already known about the research problem being investigated and to explain any new understanding or insights that emerged as a result of your study of the problem. The discussion will always connect to the introduction by way of the research questions or hypotheses you posed and the literature you reviewed, but the discussion does not simply repeat or rearrange the first parts of your paper; the discussion clearly explain how your study advanced the reader’s understanding of the research problem from where you left them at the end of your review of prior research level.

5.2. Conclusion  (2 pages)

The conclusion is intended to help the reader understand why your research should matter to them after they have finished reading the paper. A conclusion is not merely a summary of your points or a re-statement of your research problem but a synthesis of key points.

5.3. Managerial Relevance

Write here an account of the managerial relevance of your study. Just to revise the one mentioned in chapter 1 in light of the findings of the study.

5.4. Scientific Implications

Write here an account of the scientific implications of your study. Just to revise the one mentioned in chapter 1 in light of the findings of the study.

5.5. Limitations and Scope for Future Research (2 pages)

Every study has limitations. Study limitations can exist due to constraints on research design or methodology, and these factors may impact the findings of your study. However, many researchers are reluctant to discuss the limitations of their study in their papers, feeling that bringing up limitations may undermine its research value in the eyes of readers and reviewers.

You may choose to conclude the section by making suggestions for further research. Although your study may offer important insights about the research problem, this is where you can address other questions related to the problem that remain unanswered or highlight previously hidden questions that were revealed as a result of conducting your research. You should frame your suggestions by linking the need for further research to the limitations of your study [e.g., in future studies, the survey instrument should include more questions that ask…”] or linking to critical issues revealed from the data that were not considered initially in your research.
