Dissertation Timeline | Section 1 – BEGINNING


Posted October 12, 2020

Your research certainly needs to fill a gap in the literature, but when forming your set of potential topics, your driving motivation should be identifying ones that you know are doable; trust that, for at least one of the brainstormed topics, you will find a gap to justify your research in the end.

In short, pick the topic and justify it later.
