PhD assistance/guidane in India:


As many have asked us about the standard of PhD in India and how the process is structured, how to approach the colleges and what are the different phases in doing PhD, we decided to write some thing on it this time.

In this article we are going to take you through the different phases in doing PhD in India:

If you look at it on a whole, obtaining a PhD degree seems to be a tedious process but it is not the same in reality. Let break down the whole process in to different phases as follows and get to know about it in detail.

After a serious of research we have broken down the whole process in to bits and pieces

1. Proposal

2. Implementation

3. Journal Paper Writing

4. Journal Paper Publication

5. Synopsis

6. Thesis


So now lets discuss each of it in detail.

1. Proposal:

Proposal phase is like the foundation pillar of the PhD student, if this phase is not properly structured the  whole of PhD will go directionless. Proposal Phase usually comprises of 

1. Problem statement identification or Research Gap

2. Review paper Writing

3. Review Paper publication


2. Implementation

Implementation is doing or implementing what is been proposed in the Proposal phase. Bringing a real time structure to the problem statement or Research gap is what will be covered under Implementation phase. Using the tool which is been proposed the implementation needs to be completed either using the proposed software or hardware which ever is been mentioned in the proposal. Post which all the results needs to be interpreted.


3. Journal Paper Writing

This is the heart and soul of the PhD work because what ever we have done will be exposed to the research world through our journal paper writing what ever we have done in proposal, review of literature and implementation needs to be converted into a paper of  minimum 15 to 20 pages in Scopus, Elsevier, Springer(SCI) based on the university in which the student is doing his/her PhD


4. Journal Paper Publication

The Journal Paper written needs to be submitted in a suitable journal matching with the theme of the paper. There is no meaning in publishing the paper in a irrelevant journal or journal with less impact factor. The journal should be specific to the content of the paper and it should be a journal with good impact or snip factor otherwise the chances of journal getting removed from the scopus or sci list is very high, which is highly not advisable for a PhD student as his whole work which is been done for over 2 years will go into thrash. Once the paper is out for publication then the paper cannot be published any where so the PhD scholar should be very careful with respect to Publication.


5. Synopsis

Once the paper whatever we have submitted to the journal is accepted from the journal end the student can appear for their viva during which they need to prepare draft of their whole work in 10 to 15 pages max for the viva panel to evaluate and understand. Once the student has completed his viva then it means he/she has crossed 90% of the river.


6. Thesis

The last stage of any PhD work is writing the whole of the work in about 120 to 150 pages which is called as Thesis. The thesis usually comprises of 

1. Abstract

2. Introduction

3. Review of Literature

4. Research Methodology and tools used

5. Interpretation

6. Conclusion and future enhancements

7. References


There are many research centers which can provide PhD guidance and assistance from the Proposal stage to thesis writing in a very good manner in the market, one such best in the market is  Lockeys PhD Research Project center and Journal Publication Pvt  (www.lockeys.in) and Best PhD(www.bestphd.in)

Types of PhD researchers in current world


Positivist, Interpretive, and Critical Research

Why I see myself as a Positivist Researcher(PR):
I see myself as a Positivist researcher because of the following facts,
1      I prefer dealing with quantitative data, surveys, accurate experiments on the subject matter and using statistical tool which will be appropriate for my research.
2.      I prefer to do a systematic research combining empirical observation and deductive logic.
3.      I feel that everything needs to be seen through a scientific lens.
4.      To derive at a pattern I would use scientific tools/methods, surveys to arrive at the data set and statistical analysis.
5.      I rely on known and observable scientific facts.

Why I see myself as a Interpretive Researcher(IR):
I see myself as a Interpretive researcher because of the following facts,
1.      I would focus on understanding subjective experiences rather than simply observing facts as a positivist.
2.      As a interpretive researcher I would emphasize on conducting  a very close, detailed reading of the subject matter to arrive at a deep understanding.
3.      In addition to observable scientific facts I would use my common sense for my research.
4.      As a IR I strongly feel both scientific laws and common sense are important to carry out a research in their respective domain
5.      As a IR I would I always find a answer to the question “HOW” rather going by the scientific and observable facts.

Why I see myself as a Critical Researcher(CR):
I see myself as a Interpretive researcher because of the following facts,
1.      As a CR I take a neutral approach, I would use multiple layers in my research work.
2.      The multiple layers include, empirical, real and actual.
3.      As a CR I feel that scientific observations, empirical data and inner feeling/commonsense alone is not enough to carry out a research.
4.      I strongly feel that knowledge is power
5.      As a CR I don’t want to be a rational decision maker.


Difference Between PR, IR and CR
S.No
PR
IR
CR
1
Quantitative data, Surveys and structural experiments
Common sense, inner feelings and qualitative data
Knowledge is Power
2
Scientific tools/methods, surveys to arrive at the data set and statistical analysis
How analysis
Neutral Approach
3
Narrow approach
Localized, Microlevel and short term approach
Broader and long term structural approach
4
Single layer research methodology
Single layer research methodology
CR states that research consist of multiple layers
5
Aim of PR is to prove the fact
Aim of IR is to answer how and why
Aim is to empower


Conclusion:
I see myself as a CRITICAL RESEARCHER because,
1.      I feel knowledge is power and the end result of a research is just not to prove facts rather empower.
2.      I don’t want to stick to a narrow, localized, micro-level, short term approach and I feel my research should be multilayered, both qualitative and quantitative in nature.
3.      As a CR I feel we can observe  empirical reality using our senses and our personal experiences with the empirical reality is always not pure, neither neutral nor unmediated.
4.      As a CR I feel both PR and IR are rational decision makers and their decisions are always not pure in nature.
5.      As a CR I reject both PR and IR as their views are detached and concerned only with studying the problem instead of providing solution or acting on it.

How do I start writing research papers independently?




The research design refers to the overall strategy that you choose to integrate the different components of the study in a coherent and logical way, thereby, ensuring you will effectively address the research problem; it constitutes the blueprint for the collection, measurement, and analysis of data.
Note that your research problem determines the type of design you should use, not the other way around!
The function of a research design is to ensure that the evidence obtained enables you to effectively address the research problem logically and as unambiguously as possible. In social sciences research, obtaining information relevant to the research problem generally entails specifying the type of evidence needed to test a theory, to evaluate a program, or to accurately describe and assess meaning related to an observable phenomenon.
With this in mind, a common mistake made by researchers is that they begin their investigations far too early, before they have thought critically about what information is required to address the research problem. Without attending to these design issues beforehand, the overall research problem will not be adequately addressed and any conclusions drawn will run the risk of being weak and unconvincing. As a consequence, the overall validity of the study will be undermined.
The length and complexity of describing research designs in your paper can vary considerably, but any well-developed design will achieve the following:
1.       Identify the research problem clearly and justify its selection, particularly in relation to any valid alternative designs that could have been used,
2.      Review and synthesize previously published literature associated with the research problem,
3.      Clearly and explicitly specify hypotheses [i.e., research questions] central to the problem,
4.      Effectively describe the data which will be necessary for an adequate testing of the hypotheses and explain how such data will be obtained, and
5.      Describe the methods of analysis to be applied to the data in determining whether or not the hypotheses are true or false.
The organization and structure of the section of your paper devoted to describing the research design will vary depending on the type of design you are using. However, you can get a sense of what to do by reviewing the literature of studies that have utilized the same research design. This can provide an outline to follow for your own paper.
Definition and Purpose
The essentials of action research design follow a characteristic cycle whereby initially an exploratory stance is adopted, where an understanding of a problem is developed and plans are made for some form of interventionary strategy. Then the intervention is carried out (the "action" in Action Research) during which time, pertinent observations are collected in various forms. The new interventional strategies are carried out, and this cyclic process repeats, continuing until a sufficient understanding of (or a valid implementation solution for) the problem is achieved. The protocol is iterative or cyclical in nature and is intended to foster deeper understanding of a given situation, starting with conceptualizing and particularizing the problem and moving through several interventions and evaluations.
What do these studies tell you?
This is a collaborative and adaptive research design that lends itself to use in work or community situations.
Design focuses on pragmatic and solution-driven research outcomes rather than testing theories.
When practitioners use action research, it has the potential to increase the amount they learn consciously from their experience; the action research cycle can be regarded as a learning cycle.
Action research studies often have direct and obvious relevance to improving practice and advocating for change.
There are no hidden controls or preemption of direction by the researcher.
What these studies don't tell you?
It is harder to do than conducting conventional research because the researcher takes on responsibilities of advocating for change as well as for researching the topic.
Action research is much harder to write up because it is less likely that you can use a standard format to report your findings effectively [i.e., data is often in the form of stories or observation].
Personal over-involvement of the researcher may bias research results.
The cyclic nature of action research to achieve its twin outcomes of action (e.g. change) and research (e.g. understanding) is time-consuming and complex to conduct.
Advocating for change requires buy-in from participants.
A single or small number of cases offers little basis for establishing reliability or to generalize the findings to a wider population of people, places, or things.
Intense exposure to the study of a case may bias a researcher's interpretation of the findings.
Design does not facilitate assessment of cause and effect relationships.
Vital information may be missing, making the case hard to interpret.
The case may not be representative or typical of the larger problem being investigated.
If the criteria for selecting a case is because it represents a very unusual or unique phenomenon or problem for study, then your intepretation of the findings can only apply to that particular case.
Lockeys provides the best research paper writing and publication support (Springer, Elsevier and Scopus)in any leading international journals across the globe. We have our own journals and we are tied up with 50+ leading journals, we also support PhD researchers in their research work, which makes us the best in the market for Phd support and research paper publication in chennai and across India.

What is the best way to select a Phd Research Topic

Being in research industry for one and a half decade, Lockeys, chennai have been often approached by people to advice them on how to select appropriate topic for their research.
Here are some pointers that we provide them with when asked about topic selection process and preparation of proposals..

Lockeys being the leading phd Project/research centre in chennai know very well the do's and dont's while selecting a PhD research topic.
By shortlisting your future career of interest
First and foremost, decide what interests you more. If you are interested in continuing your career into academic research or if you are more keen to contribute to corporate research leading to products that are economically viable.
For the former, it is easy to find out topics that are in popular demand in research. For example, search for trending topics in the field of your interest, see journal entries for such topics in peer review journals and you would be easily able to shortlist few research work.
For the later, it requires a look into research companies’ websites to find out what kind of patents they have applied for. Patents that are applied now would have some business value in later years. Study few of those patents to know where the technology trends are heading to. Select research topics based on such interest, as by the time you receive the PhD degree, you are industry ready.
By selecting the guide you wish to work with
Selection of a research guide is another way to shortlist your research topic. After you decide that you wish to pursue research in certain domain, you are needed to shortlist few guides who are going to take you through your PhD. Study the profiles of those guides. Find out the publications where they had contributed. Mostly these guide are the most experienced person in that particular subject matter and they would further their research in the topics in which they are already expert.
Now shortlist the topics from those research papers where there is a need of achieving further and prepare your proposal accordingly.
By knowing your own technical interest
Many people who intend to do PhD has special love for their technical enthusiasm. They like reading and getting themselves updated on the research findings from their domain. You may set up custom alerts (at sitres like google, pubmed, scifinder, espacenet etc) for research articles and patent applications on specific keywords, such that whenever such an article/patent application gets published, you get a notification at your email.
Try screening these papers at regular interval to know the trend of research activities in the domain of your interest. This will further help you in preparing a proposal of your future research.
