DISSERTATION DEVELOPMENT 0 Topic of Research Your Name Goes Here Grand Canyon University: RES 820 Date Topic of Research Baker, V. L., & Pifer, M. J. (2011). The role of relationships in the transition from doctor to independent scholar. Studies in Continuing Education, 33(1), 5-17. http://doi.org/10.1080/0158037X. 2010.515569 For this assignment select ten empirical, peer-reviewed research articles that are current and relevant to your dissertation topic. Provide a reference and an annotation (150-250 words) that includes important details about the article for each of the sources. Annotations are descriptive and critical assessments of literature that help researchers evaluate texts and determine relevancy in relation to a research project. Ultimately, it is a note-taking tool that fosters critical thinking and helps you evaluate the source material for possible later use. Instead of reading articles and forgetting what you have read, you have a convenient document full of helpful information. An annotated bibliography can help you see the bigger picture of the literature you are reading. It can help you visualize the overall status of the topic, as well as where your unique question might fit into the field of literature.  Your sources should not be Class Resources, dissertations, books, reports, conference papers, legal documents, book reviews, editorials, newspaper articles, magazine articles, and other sources that are not peer-reviewed.  Degree Provide a sentence identifying your degree program and emphasis area. Research Focus Provide one sentence that discusses how your topic area aligns with your degree and emphasis area. Feasibility of Research Problem Provide one sentence that justifies the feasibility of your proposed research project. Problem Statement A problem statement emerges from reading and studying the literature around a topic. In RES 815 you discussed what is known, what needs to be known, and what is the significance of the potential problem you are investigating. Now you will organize this into different sections below. In this section, begin with the Problem Statement with a declarative problem statement based on the Identification of a problem space and your review of the literature in your field. Choose one of the formats below to write a one-sentence problem statement. It is not known how or why… Based on what is known in literature, _____ is still unknown/what still needs to be understood is… While the literature indicates ____________, it is not known in (school/district/organization/community) if __________. Need for Study Next, discuss why this is an important problem that needs to be investigated, that is, what is the benefit of studying this specific problem? (150-250 words) Conceptual/Theoretical Framework In the articles that you selected review the conceptual or theoretical frameworks that the authors used. Choose the one that seem the most promising to use in your own research. Discuss how this framework shows potential for helping you to investigate your problem space. Using the reference page, what would be the seminal work that the author(s) used that relates to the theoretical framework. (150-250 words) Significance Choose one of the articles you selected and discuss how their findings were significant to their problem area. How might examining the significance sections of articles help you prepare to write this section of your own proposal? How do you think your study will be significant to your field? (150-250 words) Defense of Article Selection The selection of the articles you choose to include is essential in developing an understanding of the literature on your topic. For this assignment you selected ten empirical articles that are important to your understanding of the problem. In this section, defend your selection of your ten articles for the annotated bibliography. Why were these ten articles important enough to annotate? How do these align with your research focus?

DISSERTATION DEVELOPMENT 0 Role of the Researcher Brandi Williams Grand Canyon University October 6, 2021. Role of the Researcher Baker, V. L., & Pifer, M. J. ( 2011 ). The role of relationships in the transition from doctor to independent scholar. Studies in Continuing Education, 33(1), 5-17. http://doi.org/10.1080/0158037X. 2010.515569 This research article focuses on the stages of the doctoral student experience. Baker and Pifer (2011) specifically address the second stage about the critical transition from ‘dependence’ to ‘independence’. The authors claim that Stage 2 is one of the most significant steps in doctoral studies where the students get the opportunity to develop an identity. The authors argue that there is a connection between relationships and learning that could help the student achieve both a student role and a scholar’s role. The research also revealed having a full understanding of the relationships as a part of the doctoral education could help all the students involved in doctoral education to acknowledge the significance of attending to the need to transition from ‘dependence’ to ‘independence’. Finally, the authors argue the significance of effective relationships between the student and the faculty and instructors in the transitioning process from being dependent to independent scholars because the scholars provide guidance, opportunities, and support during this stage of transition. The article will be used to demonstrate the importance of relationships in guiding, supporting, and providing opportunities to help doctoral students attain identity. Dóci, E., & Bal, P. M. (2018). Ideology in work and organizational psychology: t he responsibility of the researcher. European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology, 27(5), 558-560. Dóci and Bal embarked on identifying the responsibilities of a researcher in psychology. The authors articulate the importance of researchers continuously reflecting on what Work and Organizational Psychology (WOP) means in the world, how to contribute towards a better understanding of people in the workplaces. The researchers sought to identify whether WOPs were expected to consider the societal and structural conditions considering the fact that psychology is a scientific field that focuses on individuals. Based on this, the authors argue that researchers were not expected to consider the structural, societal, and political influence into account. However, it was important for the WOP to consider the structural, societal, and political influence because many factors come into play in the workplace as workplaces are social and political institutions. Another role established by the authors is new for researchers to reflect on how they are influenced by societal beliefs and ideologies. This would allow the researchers to make more deliberate decisions about the objectives of the research and focusing on outcomes that matter the most for both individuals and organizations. The article will thus be used to illustrate the role of the researcher in making more deliberate decisions about the objectives of the research, focusing on outcomes that matter the most, and considering structural, societal, and political influence. Martins, F. S., Felisoni, P. R., & Gaspar, M. A. (2020). Planning academic publications-the role of the researcher and the development of publicable proposals. Iberoamerican Journal of Strategic Management (IJSM), 19(3), 164-181. The researchers, Martins, Felisoni, and Gaspar, embarked on a study to analyze the development of academic research projects from the viewpoint of a researcher as a professional. The researchers sought to identify the researcher’s fit for the task, from the research proposal to completing the research itself. The authors identified various challenges affecting the researchers in the field of social sciences. As a result, the authors of the journal affirm that it is the responsibility of the researcher to depict higher levels of personal balance, attain the need for balancing the active aspects of planning contributions during research to the passive side of explaining the theory. According to the perspective of the authors, preventing the potential for failure in the research projects. The purpose of this article in the doctoral paper will be to use the arguments raised by the authors to discuss the role of the researchers in balancing the active aspects of planning contributions during research to the passive side of explaining the theory as well as achieving personal balance during research. Simon, M. ( 2011 ). The role of the researcher. This article explains the role of the researcher in both qualitative and quantitative studies. First, the author argues that the role of the researcher in quantitative research is nearly non-existent. This is because the participants act independently. For example, the author argues that correlational studies can gather data without regard to the participants or the person collecting the data. On the contrary, the role of the researcher is very different when it comes to qualitative research. The researcher has to be conscious of the human element because the consumers of the data will want to understand that. Therefore, it is the role of the researcher to describe the relevant aspects of self such as the biases, limitations, experiences, expectations, and assumptions that the researcher made during the research. Furthermore, the researcher is expected to explain his or her role in the research for qualitative research. Finally, Simon argues that a researcher should ask probing questions, listen, think, and asks more probing questions to attain a deeper understanding by building a picture of the ideas and theories from various sources. Slembrouck, S. (2015). The role of the researcher in interview narratives. The handbook of narrative analysis, 239-254. Slembrouck addresses the role of the researcher in an interview. The author specifically addresses the role played by the researcher in interviews that use narratives and methodologies of narrative analysis (Slembrouck, 2015). For example, the researcher is expected to consider the conditions of narrative and the narrative outcomes based on the common forms of data collection deployed – the research interview. When using the narrative approach, the article explains the role played by the researcher in this context, where the researcher acts as an interactant with strategic investment in the interview and the researcher acting as a post hoc analyst of the data collected from the interview. The author argues that the role of the researcher sometimes may sometimes work in the background, contributing towards achieving the goals of the interview narration. The article will thus be used to illustrate the role of the researcher in an interview narrative where the researcher may act as a post hoc analyst of the data collected and as an interactant. Degree My degree program was a Master of Science in Psychology and my area of emphasis will be to study the role of a researcher . Research Focus The topic area aligns with my degree in Master of Science in Psychology and the emphasis area since the degree provides a foundation of knowledge in the field while the area of emphasis provides the skills needed to amass the knowledge through research . Feasibility of Research Problem The topic is viable and can be researched and be done. The research problem is possible to answer and the scope of the research question is manageable in the context of the class. The research question directs the central inquiry of the study because the research will be answering the research questions. The research topic will help researchers understand their role in identifying the treatments that work best for patients and in discovering new treatments or interventions. Understanding the role of the researcher will also help to effectively use the existing resources in the best way possible to improve our communities. There is a wide range of data sources that can be used for the research problem. The topic is thus feasible. Problem Statement Currently, the steps that a researcher has to follow to conduct a research study. However, little is known about the exact role that the researcher has to play. It is important to understand the specific roles of the researcher in a research study. The significance of understanding the role of the researcher is that it will help future researchers to remain focused on their research study. The researcher will identify the areas needed to increase knowledge in a particular field, plan and perform surveys and experiments, as well as effectively and accurately collect, record, and analyze data by understanding their roles in research. Identifying all the roles of a researcher in a single research article has not been achieved before. This will thus be an important research article that needs to be investigated because researchers intending to understand their roles will not have to research across different sources to understand their roles but find them in a single research article. Defense of Article Selection The articles selected will help to identify past literature on the topic. The articles will help to provide a better understanding of the research problems. The articles that were annotated were the articles that would help to increase the understanding of what was happening in the text and incorporate them in the research that I was to conduct. The main points raised by the authors and the key areas of focus aligned with my area of focus, helping me to develop strong arguments to support the research problem. By annotating the five articles, I was able to achieve a deeper understanding of the articles and the arguments raised by the authors. The articles also helped me to better comprehend and retain the arguments raised by the authors about the area of focus. For instance, annotating the articles helped me to gather the information that I would use later on by going through the annotated bibliography. The sources selected to align with my research focus because the articles selected for the annotated bibliography seek to answer the research question. Therefore, the use of the research articles will be to answer the research question. All the articles adopted for the annotated bibliography are current because they have been published within the last five years. The research articles selected are also relevant because they have been published recently and thus the arguments raised in the articles are up-to-date. The articles are peer-reviewed journals which means that they have been written by experts in the field and reviewed by other experts in the field to ensure the articles are of high quality and have scientifically valid conclusions.
