Following are elaborations on how I approach and regulate my research supervision experience:
For researchers’ who plan to do academic research for the first time, it is important how to devise a literature search strategy, so that a rather naïve research notion may be furnished into a well-structured proposition and the hypothesis. In order to do that effectively, I heavily rely on databases of scholarly and academic literature such as the Jstor, Science Direct, Springer Link, Sage, etc. so that any research notion may strongly be grounded in literature.
The prime focus is laid upon how to choose an appropriate research design that can closely approximate the statement of the research hypothesis. Constantly, we are in the urge to make the statement of the research hypothesis, more scientific in appearance and testable. Assessing the academic value of the stated hypothesis, as an obsolete, conventional, contemporary, and purely indigenous narrative is always important for researchers and supervisors’, particularly if they are seeking to explore gaps in research.
While furnishing the research design for a proposed study, I carefully inspect that the choice of methodological tools, justify the needs of the data and the data instruments, thereby minimizing biases that arise due to the choice of inappropriate research designs.
As research supervisor I have to make sure that the research notion is indigenous, and that the proposed work is not been affected by bounded rationality (too little knowledge).
Special emphasis is laid upon how to structure the thesis into a detailed table of contents, how to conduct and write a review of the literature, in a way so that the incidence of plagiarism may naturally be avoided.
How to make choices of the data collection methods among primary data collection in form of designing semi-structured or fully structured questionnaires, deciding about the selection of variables for specific analytical needs using databases of statistical information in a time series analysis, and how to pool the data.
Keeping in view the digitalization orientation of the present-day research both in the quantitative and qualitative research designs, we potentially can supplement packages such as Stata, SPSS, Minitab, and Nvivo, for analysis of the data.
How to report findings and results, how to interpret results, and how to specify limitations of research.
Task management and scheduling research activities, using Gantt charts, etc.
