As a follow up on Mondays post on the introduction, I will explore the background a bit more.
We are still looking at the book “Writing the winning thesis or dissertation: a step-by-step guide” (Glatthorn & Joyner: 2005).
The book has a really helpful way of defining the background of the study from 4 different perspectives:
- Societal background
- Intellectual background
- Professional background
- Research background
I used this way of defining the background and made a mindmap. This has really helped me to define the influences that this thesis is built upon.
