Analytical Tools For Research

Analytical Tools For Research

If we move down in this qualitative study there I give you in one sentence what I did drag collected graduate student papers and then the next sentence all papers were analyzed for descriptive and analytical writing using analytical tools drawn from the research literature so in the actual paper that would constitutes a page or so but of course you can only put a sentence in here and then at the end preliminary findings so because I haven’t actually done the analysis and I don’t really know what the findings are going to be I’m just I’m putting in there tentativeness that’s I might change later on when I give the presentation and then I can say well in the abstract I thought this is what I was going to find but now that i’ve conduct conducted the analysis i know that this is what I’m gonna find okay.

Just a quick point about your identities your scholarly identity anytime you write academically you you are portraying this academic identity so what you want to try and do is come across in this very scholarly professional way and one of the ways you do that is by paying attention to to the guidelines also responding to the call not going over the word count making sure that you have followed the instructions and editing for any kind of errors what I wanted to the point I wanted to make here is that people often think that productive writers or long-term academics sit down and produce these fabulous abstracts in one sitting but really that’s not the case everybody works at their abstracts everyone begins with a very bad draft and then fixes it up gets feedback on it perhaps and then you know does more work on it so really there’s a process involved in writing abstracts it’s not something that you think about and then just produce in fact most people begin by writing very bad drafts and then they fix it up and that’s the kind of process I’d encourage you to take is to get anything down start with something.

Get something done and then fix it up and gradually fix it up to a point where you want to share it with someone now that you know what components should go into an abstract you can ask someone specifically to give you feedback on those components ok common phrases and abstracts if you’re struggling for the kind of language that you want to use in the abstract and visit this website where they have some very useful phrases here they’re talking about dissertation abstracts but you can adjust the kind of language use will be dependent on your particular discipline so you can also learn from reading other abstracts in your field so this is just another slide to show you some of the common language taken from that website which you can use and encourage you to use active language we studied fifteen patients versus passive language fifteen patients were studied just because it’s much more readable.
