Research Risks And Outcomes

Posted by Terrence Morris

Most things that you will be writing about will have certain things where you want to improve lives or understand something that will benefit other people and so highlighting the benefits of things is another way to have a potential pillar or part of different topics that you’re discussing and then also along with benefits of course risks and negative outcomes so if something is related to negative outcomes then that also indicates the importance of doing research in that area so it enhances support for the hypothesis and also gets it across about why it’s important to study this topic you’ll also address weaknesses and strengths of previous research so if you’re looking to make an adjustment to somebody else’s method or a slightly different hypothesis than somebody else has made then you want to address the justification for that and and where there were weaknesses or strengths in the previous research. Learn on great research articles on Edusson.

Both in methods and hypothesis and findings so this example while previous studies have focused on the target persons that first generation college students disclose to none have looked at the proximity of those targets to the student so that then suggests okay looking at proximity of those targets is important and then narrowing topics is important and so there are many articles probably that have looked at first-generation college students and their social networks but it’s your job to narrow that in terms of the hypothesis which is a different sort of a lecture but just a reminder that when you’ve got the hypothesis that comes at the end of your introduction so you are leading the reader through lots of justifications and arguments and at the end they should come to the same conclusion that you have oh yeah of course this hypothesis makes great sense so you’ve suggested the research question at the beginning more broadly and then you get very specific at the end and so make sure the hypothesis is stated in a way that it can be tested.

It stated specifically enough it’s based on your research topic obviously and that the variables are clearly defined so you can have your variable definitions right around where your hypothesis is so your reader knows what kind of conceptual and operational definitions that you are using for your hypothesis and it’s okay to have multiple hypotheses but you to make sure that you have support for all of them so the hypotheses shouldn’t come out of nowhere the hypotheses should be the absolutely logical inevitable conclusion from the journey that the reader has gone through reading your arguments and your claims and your evidence and the way that you’ve organized and then there it is at the end the hypothesis which is the specific center of your paper so you can picture it like a funnel oh actually to funnel stuck together hourglass broad in the introduction and it gets narrow to the hypothesis and the methods are very specific and then in the discussion you get broad again and that’s for a different section of the paper but that’s where you’re headed with this a couple other pointers.
