Q: Can you help me with discussing the scope and limitations of my research on social anxiety?
For the scope, I need to talk about:
- Population: Who, how, and why I chose the respondents from the population
For the limitation, I need to include the following:
- Sampling method used to select my participants
- The instrument and the research design - and why I chose those
- Time limitations
- Limitations on (of) financial resources
It looks like you need help not just with the scope and delimitations, but with the basic research design and perhaps even the Discussion section, as you have mentioned ‘limitations’ twice. (Note that ‘delimitations’ are different from ‘limitations,’ as you shall also see below.) In that case, we are sharing a few links to resources from the site to help you get started on the points you have mentioned. For further help, you may look up the site using the relevant keywords.
- Scope/Delimitations: What is the meaning of scope and delimitations of a study?
- Respondents: How do I calculate the population of a place to estimate the number of interviewees for my research?
- Sampling: Is it necessary to describe the sampling technique and sample size when I'm dealing with secondary data in my research?
- Instrument: Which research instrument do I use to collect data for solving a labour problem?
- Design: What kind of research method should I use for my thesis: qualitative or quantitative?
- Limitations: What are the limitations of a study and how to write them?
Additionally, you may wish to consider our experimental design service: Editage Experimental Design
Hope that helps. All the best for your research!
