  2. 2. Outline of the Session • Objectives of FYP • Format options available at FAST-NUCES • What is academic dishonesty (plagiarism) • FYP Time line and Poster Development • What is the difference between Deductive and inductive approaches? • What is abductive approach? • Difference between method and methodology? • What is a theoretical Framework? How it differs from a conceptual framework? • Developing purpose for your research Topic • How to incorporate through funneling - Towards building your Purpose and the corresponding RQs/Hypothesis • How to use references and what style of referencing? • Questions & Answers from Faculty Panel
  3. 3. Objectives of FYP • To work independently on your own initiative to explore one area of your program in depth. • To gather information in a thorough and rigorous manner. • To process and integrate material in a sustained exercise of intellectual ordering. • To produce a coherent, literary document.
  4. 4. Presenting Research: Chapterization Shortened Structure: Recommended for Masters
  5. 5. What is (not)Addressed? Fieldwork Ch-3: Apply Methodolo gy Ch-4: Preliminary Analysis COVERED IN FYP-1 COVERED IN FYP-2
  6. 6. Format Options at FAST-NUCES a) The Empirical Research paper (refer to Page 4 of FYP Guidelines-BBA) b) The Theoretical Paper (refer to Page 5 of FYP Guidelines-BBA) c) The Feasibility Study / Business plan (refer to Page 6 of FYP Guidelines-BBA) d) The Business Consultancy Report (refer to Page 7 of FYP Guidelines-BBA)
  7. 7. LITERATURE REVIEW EFFICIENT READING STRATEGIES • Use the snowball technique of following up references in bibliographies. Identify key authors and search for their publications. Key word searches on library catalogues and databases. Identify key journals – skim titles and abstracts SQ3R by Bazzerman, The informed Writer Survey – get the gist; is the text relevant to read in detail? Question – what questions do you expect the text to answer Read the text carefully Recall the main points Review the text to check your recall Example of these annotations is given is to be shared with you
  8. 8. Academic dishonesty • WHAT IS PLAGIARISM? • The wholesale copying of another’s work and claiming it as your own • Rephrasing someone else’s original ideas and not acknowledging the source. • Using material which is recognised as common knowledge in your field but copying the information word for word from a text book. • Acknowledging the source but using the exact wording of the original or wording that is very close to the original [without showing it or too often]; • You can use a cited author’s exact words if making a direct quotation, you should only use direct quotations selectively. • By developing effective reading, referencing, summarising and paraphrasing skills, the risk of plagiarism can be avoided.

  10. 10. DEDUCTIVE (Water fall) Vs. INDUCTIVE (Hill Climbing)
  11. 11. Abductive Research Approach • No research can be 100 % deductive or for that matter 100 % inductive. • Abductive approach is a zig-zag between inductive and inductive (explicit or implicit) • You revisit the process after collecting field data
  12. 12. Theoretical Framework A theoretical framework is analogous to the frame of the building or a car for that matter Just as the foundation supports a house, a theoretical framework provides a rationale for predictions about the relationships among variables of a research study Thus, the theoretical framework is but a theory that serves as a basis for conducting research.
  13. 13. DFID Framework mostly used by NGOs
  14. 14. Theoretical framework Vs. Conceptual Framework Mostly used for quantitative Mostly used for qualitative purposes Where there are strong theories to test Themes are broader or open Deductive in nature Inductive in nature Literature is available or models are available Mostly not so sufficient literature is available There is one way directionality There is bi-directionality Mostly used in HR research such as Job satisfaction and employee performance with moderating and mediating variables No tight relationship is available as the studies might be of exploratory nature i.e. not grounded in theory firmly
  15. 15. Developing purpose - Purpose is a short one sentence umbrella term covering objectives, RQs and Hypothesis , Phenomenon or problem (empirical or theoretical) Theories within the field Theories in other/related fields Other research done purpose/ research questions Discussion
  16. 16. Developing your Purpose • Moving from nouns to verbs – Example; ”Brand communications approach between the customers and suppliers of Husqvarna” – Describe the effects communicating brand history will have on the customers and suppliers of Husqvarna – Analyse the effectiveness of using a communications approach on Husqvarna customers based on recent vs. historical company achievements • How do you know if it is interesting? – Adding new knowledge • Apply new theories to existing problems • Filling in knowledge gaps • Find variables that have been ignored • Study important consequences previous research has ignored
  17. 17. Method Versus Methodology • You are not going to write a book on methodology • Research should be driven by questions not methods- Don’t put the cart before the horse • Method is a tool such as interviews or surveys and Methodology refers to justification of its use. • Justification and suitability is important
  18. 18. Limitations versus Delimitations • Limitations are influences that researchers cannot control as it places restrictions on methodology and conclusions. Any limitation that might influence shall be mentioned. i.e. Look in your analysis, sample, time constraints, instruments etc • Delimitations are choices made by the researcher which should be mentioned. They describe the boundaries you have set for the research. This is the place to explain things you are not doing (and why have you chosen not to do them) • The literature you will not review (and why not)? • The population you will not be studying and why not? • The methodological procedures you will not use and why not?
  19. 19. References • Use Endnote X3/x4/x5 software for creating machine generated reference given at the end of the project • For in-text referencing follow APA 6th style. The APA 6Manual will be shared with you. In-text quotation Wegner & Wheatley (1999) proposed/contends/states/prolcaims/states/asserts/emphasizes that the subjective experience of intentions causing behavior is an illusion; both intention and behaviour are caused by a third variable; “unconscious mechanisms of the mind”. (consult Mancher phraseology website for style) Block quotation … Muraven et al. (1998) suggest that: It is good to exert self-control on a regular basis because in the long run, these exercises will strengthen self-control and make a person less susceptible to the depleting effects of a single exertion.
  20. 20. Poster Preparation • In order to participate in Job Fare you will need to make a poster of your FYP. • The poster shall be a graphical representation of your FYP. • Generally, it is best to create a blue print for your study in consultation with your supervisor at the outset.
