In Brief
Research gap is a problem, which is
not covered properly. It may be
stemming from deficiency of
appropriate data to support the thesis
title and literature gap, which means
the lacking or uncomplete piece of
information in the Academic research
literature which is not investigated or
studied.
What is a
research
gap?
• A research gap means, there are
some areas that have significant
scope for more research, but they
have not been investigated by other
researchers. In other words, no one
has picked up or worked on these
ideas.
• A research gap refers to such
unexplored or underexplored areas
that have scope for further
research.
Introduction
•A research gap is a topic or field for
which insufficient data restrict the
ability to conclude a research question.
•If we are investigating a research
problem, what is the best medicine for
heart attacks? You can find out several
researches and potential answers to
the research problem.
•Research gap identify a knowledge
gap or an unexplored area on which
you can base your research.
How to
Identify
Research Gaps
Identifying research gaps might appear challenging or even
impossible, given the potential of current research.
You might say I do not have time to read every public
health paper that is written concerning the current
research.
The critical question here is how do you find a gap in your
research?
Finding gaps and coming up with original and
innovative(NEW) topics can be tricky.
In Fields of research, there are several(MENY) methods,

Research Gaps
Identify problems not discussed by the literature concerning
your vital motivating problem
It is the last step we all find the most difficult.
It can be hard to find out what an article does not claim.
I like to keep a list of notes of biased or contradictory
facts.

What problems or the author has not answered questions?
Is there a particular viewpoint I should take into account?
What other variables may have affected the findings? It
would help if you concentrated on the Introduction section
when reading research papers
The authors clarify their research subject's significance and
the holes they have found and attempted to fill in their
research.
