Q: What comprises the background to a study in a research paper?
I'm writing a research paper on "Difficulties in extra-activities connection among my class (BIFA4) Students". What should be included in the background?
The background is part of the Introduction section of a research paper and should include essential information for setting up your study goals and hypothesis. It should cover the knowledge in the field and identify gaps in current literature. This will allow your research study to be placed in context and will adequately highlight the novelty and significance of the study.
