Rephrasing the Research Problem

Finally as a researcher you should rephrase the research problem. Once you have followed all the four steps above, i.e.,

1) You have clearly understood the nature of the problem;

2) The environmental within which the problem has got to be studied;

3) You have discussed the problem with experts; and

4) You have surveyed and examined, the available literature rephrasing the problem into analytical and operational terms is not a difficult task. This implies that as a researcher you put the problem in specific terms as far as possible so that it becomes operationally viable.

Following additional points should be kept in mind while defining a research problem:

1) Technical terms, words or phrases, with special meaning in statement of problem should be clearly defined.

2) Basic assumptions or postulates (if any) relating to research problem should be clearly stated.

3) The scope of investigation on the limits within which the problem is to be studied must be mentioned explicitly in defining research problem.
