Topic and PhD Research Proposal

No journey can start without knowing where you want to reach and how. Similarly, a PhD thesis cannot start without establishing what you wish to achieve and what particular issues you wish to address through such research.

Topic Ideas for PhD

The topic must be suggestive of your intentions through the research and appealing to the academic fraternity. In general, your topic should be:

  • Unique: The question you want to answer must be original. Don’t repeat what others have said before.
  • Meaningful: your topic, along with being interesting and original, must be significant to the area of knowledge. It must have an impact on the way the society or industry functions.
  • Encourage further research: Your topic must encourage others to take up similar research considering other dimensions of the issue. If this is not the case, your work is less likely to be cited by other scholars.

Don’t choose a topic just because it is in trend; it may lose the charm by the time you finish your research. Stay away from topics that can be answered with a simple yes or no. Lastly, gauge your interest level in the research question. Topic selection can be highly confusing for PhD candidates and getting trustworthy advice from qualified guides can be a blessing.

Research Proposal

Once you finalise the topic for your research, the next step is to develop the research proposal. You have to come up with a proposal that provides absolute clarity to your committee about the final dissertation that you will present. As a framework of the research project, the proposal must talk about the following:

  • literature resources that you will refer to
  • data collection methods and sample size
  • research methods, theories used, assumptions and validity issues
  • data analysis methods and tools you will use
  • probable results and conclusions

Though the actual length of the proposal will depend on the guidelines of your committee, it must not be more than 25-30 pages.

When you consult our team for selecting the most suitable topic or writing the proposal, we will discuss your field of interest and suggest the topic accordingly. Further, we will assign a writer who will draft the proposal according to the guidelines specified. You may get in touch with our team at phdhelp@fivevidya.com
