We can support you by reviewing chapters and help you to structure your work. We usually start by reviewing your most up to date table of content. The table of content serves as a mirror for the maturity of your thesis and thus provides an excellent mean to provide you with guidance and support. Send us your latest table of content to obtain a FREE FEEDBACK of the maturity of your research and development needs.
We can provide you with regular reviewing and editing support alongside your research phases as exemplified in the table below, or just provide more sporadic feedback on a piece of work.
|Issue Framing, Problem Identification, and the Research Question||Month -6||Identification of the existing issues, isolation of the research problem, and formulation of matching research question.|
|Initial literature Screening, and identification of possible methodological Approaches||Month -3||Initial screening of the literature to understand the state of the art around your problem area, including identification of existing studies in the field that could provide possible methodological approaches for your research project.|
|Thesis research proposal||Month 0||First full draft of the thesis research proposal, including Gantt chart, Risk and Mitigation strategies, and ethical considerations.|
|Literature review & identification of boundaries.||Month 3||Literature Review targeted at understanding the state of the art around your problem area, including the establishment of tentative boundaries of what appears to be the focus of this research, and the identification of the methodological approach of the research.|
|Operational Research Plan||Month 6||The operational research plan will clearly outline the research problem and research question including their location within the existing literature; the methods to be applied in the research and how these will be implemented.|
|Draft Chapters One “Introduction”, Two “Literature Review”, and Three “Methodology”||Month 6||Once you have your operational research plan in place you are in the position to present a first draft of your chapters One “Introduction”, Two “Literature Review”, and Three “Methodology”.|
|Ethics Clearance||Month 6|
|Conduct research: Data Collection||Month 10||Implementation of the research plan, collection of data.|
|Draft Chapter Four “Data Collection”||Month 12||This chapter simply will present the data as you collect it through your research.|
|Conduct research: Analysis of findings||Month 12||As the data become available you will start to analyse and evaluate them against the background of your initial literature screening. At this point you also might conduct some further literature review as the findings emerge.|
|Draft Chapter Five “Research Analysis”||Month 15||Upon completion of the data collection you will be in the position to present a first draft on the thesis chapter presenting the research findings.|
|Chapter Six “Research Findings” and complete draft thesis||Month 18||A first full draft of your thesis.|
|Viva preparation||Month 21||Preparation for the thesis defense and Mock Up Viva.|
|Viva examination||Month 21||2-3 months after submission.|
|Revisions and resubmission||Month 24||Almost all thesis will be subject to revisions and the aim is to pass with only “Minor Modifications” and to resubmit within less then three month after the viva.|
To allow you to improve your work we offer feedback on a piece of work through a iterative three feedback rounds process at a price of GBP450,- / EUR 500,-. Send us your piece of work for iterative feedback.
Alternatively, we can support you more closely alongside your progression and completion of the above research path as part of our coaching and mentoring services, which consist of weekly video Skype calls, commenting on drafts, reviewing and editing of drafts, as well as custom crafted instructions and training materials.
