درباره‌ی این فصل:

A good paper do not loose focus throughout the entirety of its form. As such, we are going to give you a more detailed view on how to delimit your paper. We are going to lead you through your paper by taking a closer look at the paper definition which will ensure you don't loose focus. Then we will explain why the literature review is important and how to actually do it. And then we will guide you with advices as to how to find the so-what of your paper! This is important as research is all about so-what!

این دوره شامل 6 فصل زیر است:

To ensure that, identify colleagues and member of your network that can help you position the paper in the terms that you have chosen. For instance, if you're looking to publish in management journal, for example like the Harvard Business Review, which is oriented toward industry professional as well as academics. The three questions we just discussed have to be kept in mind through the building of your literature review, to ensure that what you write is still coherent with what you set out to do.

This fact explain the necessary critical dimension of the literature review and why the frontier between knowledge and non-knowledge is always moving. To sum up, the work on the literature review could be pictured by the analogy made famous by Isaac Newton. Originality may cover several aspects, including leading new empirical work, also interpreting known ideas in a new way, giving new data to old problems, but also translating results from one technique or context to another.

You can see the authors, Mwabu and Schultz, the journal where it was published, the American Economic Review, the year, 1996, and the dataset where it is stored which is JSTOR. Most important, you have the possibility to create an alert which will send you an email when new references appears with those specific key words. Often, first year PhD student gets lost in doing some bibliographical review of their field and don't even work on the subject.

So now you are aware of this, you must explain in your article how you can really contribute to the scientific community by filling the gap in the literature. Thanks to your data and you're able to produce results that internalize, will shed some light, or further the reasoning on your research question. With this analysis, you can make a theoretical conclusion and partially fill the literature gap you have identified at the beginning of the paper.

As you progress in your paper, you may have to go back and forth between the research question, the theoretical background and particle context and the methodology to adjust for coherence. To come back to our main subject and clarify the importance of the research design in your paper, let's quickly do composite structure. We will start next time by taking you through each of the arch composing of the article to understand how the plot coming together and how to structure your academic paper.

There is lots of software and we put several examples in the references of this lecture, but we will focus here on this one as it is free and easy to use. Notes that if the PDF is free of access it will be automatically downloaded and added to your library. Another thing, you can double click on the file and it will open, and there you can take notes on it and consult them when you want.
