Chapter 1 in a dissertation serves as the introduction to the research study. It sets the stage for the entire dissertation by providing an overview of the research topic with a clear problem statement or question, and explaining the significance and rationale for conducting the study. Chapter 1 includes a statement of the research objectives or hypotheses, a brief review of relevant literature to establish the context and gap in knowledge, and an outline of the overall structure of the dissertation. Additionally, it describes the research design, methodology, and data collection methods that will be used in subsequent chapters.
Chapter 2 in a dissertation is typically dedicated to the literature review. It serves as a comprehensive survey and analysis of existing scholarly works and research studies relevant to the research topic. The primary goal of Chapter 2 is to provide a critical review of the literature, showcasing the researcher's understanding of the current state of knowledge and identifying any research gaps, inconsistencies, or unresolved issues that the research intends to address. It involves synthesizing and summarizing previous studies, theories, and concepts related to the research topic and establishing the theoretical framework or conceptual framework that will guide the study. The literature review in Chapter 2 helps to provide a foundation for the research and informs the development of research questions or hypotheses.
Chapter 3 outlines the research design, methodology, and data collection methods employed in the study. The primary purpose is to explain how the research was conducted and to justify the choices made regarding the research approach.
In Chapter 3, researchers describe the overall research design, such as whether it is qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods, and provide a rationale for selecting the specific approach. They also detail the research participants or sample, including the criteria used for participant selection. The chapter includes a description of the data collection methods and instruments used, whether it involves interviews, surveys, observations, experiments, or a combination of these. Moreover, researchers discuss any ethical considerations and procedures implemented to protect participants' rights and confidentiality. They also address potential limitations of the chosen methodology and explain how they attempted to mitigate these limitations.
Overall, Chapter 3 provides readers with a clear understanding of the research methods employed, ensuring the study's credibility and replicability.
