Q: How to formulate research objectives?
How to write objectives for a topic that talks on "use."
Research objectives summarize the accomplishments a researcher wishes to achieve through the project and provides direction to the study. Before forming a research objective, you should read about all the developments in your area of research and find gaps in knowledge that need to be addressed. You may use these gaps in literature to frame your own research objectives. These research objectives should be achievable, that is, you should design your study such that no matter what your results and findings are, they will add new information to the current literature and help advance the field.
