ETCO INDIA's Topic Proposal Development for Dissertation,
Thesis Research Projects - In Service to Learners Since 1983
I am happy to know that our articles on research ideas and topics have helped you in invoking your critical thinking and
selecting your most preferred research topics. If you have landed on this page directly, we encourage you to first go through
our articles on research ideas and topics accessible through the following link:

Dissertation, Thesis Research topics in Wireless and Communications Engineering, Modern Information Technology Systems
and Management
, Information Systems Security and Governance, Information Risk Management, Cloud Computing,
Virtualisation and their Security
, Logistics, and Supply Chain Management, Sustainable Logistics and Supply Chains, and
Industry 4.0, Industrial Internet of Things, Big Data Analytics, and Artificial Intelligence.

Please feel free to contact us at
consulting@etcoindia.co or consulting@etcoindia.net to get help in selecting your research
topics or discuss the research topic(s) you have chosen.

Further, we also offer you to develop the "problem description and statement", "aim, objectives,
research questions", "design of methodology and methods", and "15 to 25 most relevant references
per topic" for
three topics of your choice of research areas at a nominal fee of US $85
(US Dollars Eighty Five Only)
. This service shall be free of cost for one topic
only
. The synopses shall help you in focussing, critically thinking, discussing with your reviewer,
and developing your detailed research proposal.

Before starting the document, we will first propose multiple alternate topics such that we shall agree upon the best three
topics based on your choices or your preliminary discussions with your reviewer. Following are the benefits that you will
avail through this service:

(1) For each topic, you will get a clearly drafted problem description and the Problem Statement for your research citing 15 to
25 most relevant and current references: A clear and present problem description helps in defending the justification for
conducting your research. Justification of a research is based on the current research studies published by other researchers
(typically, not older than five years), problems highlighted by the current research studies, problems highlighted in related
industry reports (such as in reports published by Deloitte, Ernst & Young, PWC, Gartner, etc.), and interests expressed by
your reviewer. Problem description and problem statement needs to be linked directly with the research topic, the research
aim, research objectives, and the research questions.

(2) For each topic, you will get a clear statement of Aim of the research: The aim of the research may be exploratory,
confirmatory, or explanatory. It is closely related with your research problem and the way you want to address the problem
through your research. It is crucial to define an aim that can be defendable for ensuring acceptance of the research proposal.

(3) For each topic, you will get three to five statements of Research Objectives: The objectives of a research should be SMART,
that is:
Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-Bound. These attributes are reviewed carefully by the
reviewers looking into the limitations of the researcher, limitations of his/her resources, and limitations of the design of
research methodology and methods. A student may like to achieve something astronomous, but the reviewers are smart
enough to restrict the proposed research to SMART objectives. Based on our vast experience, we are capable of defining
objectives meeting the SMART criteria, which shall be easy to justify and defendable in your larger research proposal
document.

(4) For each topic, you will get two to four Research Questions: Are you asking the right questions in your research? The
research questions need to be answered within all the limitations of the proposed research ensuring validity and reliability of
the outcomes. They should be defined carefully to ensure that they are aligned closely with the objectives, and they do not
dilute the SMARTness of the objectives. Based on our vast experience, we are capable of defining research questions those
can be answered realistically within the limitations of the research, and can ensure achievement of SMART objectives.
Further, the research questions defined by us will guide you in your literature review such that you can later derive your
relevant hypotheses and structural construct. For example, you may define the sections of your literature review based on
the research questions.

(5) For each topic, you will get the steps of the Design of Research Methodology and Methods: Our design of research
methodology and methods for your research topic(s) shall ensure that your research can achieve its SMART objectives, and
can answer the research questions with acceptable levels of reliability and validity. We will provide a concept map of
research design for each topic, presenting the steps of the design of research methodology and methods clearly. We shall
provide appropriate citations to justify our steps.
