Discussion Question




Thehardest part of carrying out a research project is the selecting ofthe most suitable themes as well as subthemes. Nonetheless, coming upwith the most relevant themes for the literature review does not haveto be complicated if the research has a well-formulated thesisstatement. According to Akundi (2012), a good thesis will guide aresearcher in choosing the right themes easily. Moreover, the studenthas to make sure the theme contributes to the discussion of theresearch topic. After creating one or two themes, dividing them intosmaller themes will be so simple. Besides, the sub-themes will resultin the comprehension of the whole literature review (Vamsi &ampKodali, 2014). Therefore, all the themes and the smaller parts needto be related.

Oneof the challenges encountered while writing a research project iscompleting it in good time and ensuring it has the right number ofwords. For that reason, organization skills will greatly assist astudent in overcoming the two problems (Braguglia &amp Jackson2012). Firstly, it is crucial to divide the literature review intosections, and then allocate each to a certain timescale. Vamsi andKodali (2014) also note that creating a timetable may seem uselessbut it is effective if one wants to finish the literature review ontime.

Theother issue involves finding new journal articles as outlined by theinstructor. New articles present new ideas that are better comparedto older sources (Braguglia &amp Jackson 2012). Sometimes it isquite challenging to get such materials but there are ways to do so.As Akundi (2012) suggests, most university websites have up to dateacademic materials. One can also check on the internet and someexcellent websites such as the ProQuest.
