Q: Can you give an example of the scope and delimitations in research?
Our research title is ‘Antimicrobial Activity of Butterfly Pea Plant (Clitoria Ternatea) Against Acne (Acne Vulgaris).’
The scope of a study is the extent to which you will examine the topic of your study. It is often necessary to restrict the scope of your study, otherwise, the study will become unfeasible, whether in terms of time, budget, or participants. Delimitations are the constraints a researcher places on a study for various reasons, but mostly, to restrict the scope of the study. Scope and delimitations thus go hand in hand. You need to write about the scope and delimitations in the Methods section.
