The appropriateness of a theoretical framework that a researcher uses throughout the research process is an important determinant of the researcher’s ultimate success. Theoretical frameworks provide a particular perspective, or lens, through wh...

Benson Omusonga It is vital to note that research work is tied to some existing theories'. theory directs the variable towards the guided principles for which we have made or developed our assumptions. the study for which your about to embark is therefore geared in this direction for which such expectations is likely to adhere considering the nature of your resear...

James Hadley
James Hadley Can you be more specific as to what you need to know?

In general, a literature review is a summary of the extant research that touches on or overlaps with the research you are introducing. A good review manages to synthesise a large number of inter-related discussions in a way that both demonstrates that the researcher is fully aware of all aspect...

Carl Edlund Anderson I am not sure whether any existing CSL styles can be convinced to do this correctly. I have been slowly working on a "fixed/hacked" version of some an APA CSL style for use with Mendeley, but I haven't tried it with videos yet. In any event, I suspect it _can_ be done.

Hello all,

My name's Alex. I'm new to this group, new to Mendeley, and a somewhat apprentice in-archive researcher. I was hoping that some of you may have some advice and/or be able to point me in the right direction to fulfill a goal of mine.

Specifically, I was wondering if any of you have any experience persuading a university library to digitize an archival collection or pursuing funding towards that same end?

Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

P.s. I have been able to get scans of small portions of the aforementioned collection via my university's limited inter-library loan privileges, but, even with the extension of those privileges for the upcoming semester, I will still not get very far with a collection of this size (~13 linear feet).

hallo guys, I need help you all experts here. I have a problem when I were writing for abstract. Could you all give me enlightenment such as how to write effectively in abstract. Thanks
Carl Edlund Anderson
Carl Edlund Anderson A good general rule is that your abstract should imitate the structure of your paper. So, for example, if you are writing a paper on the results of empirical research (in basically any field) that more or less follows the familiar IMRaD format, then your abstract should have a few sentences that summarize the introduction section, a few sentences t...

James Hadley Dr Anderson's comment above is very valuable for many of us, I think, (certainly me) to continue improving our work.

There is a page on the LSC website that reiterates some of his points and systematises them to some extent.:
