Optimum Research Consulting
Maybe you’re just getting around to finishing up your comprehensive exams or topic selection process, and have no idea how to begin drafting your thesis. Or, perhaps you’ve made some initial progress with your research, only to contend with multiple rounds of feedback with your chair or committee without significant progress. Regardless of the current stage of your graduate studies, we’ve been there! And more importantly, we can meet you where you are to help you move forward, complete your thesis, and graduate.
Graduate-level research asks master’s and doctoral candidates to be quite detailed in terms of finding a unique and compelling research gap and design. In truth, the standards for graduate research aren’t much different from those outlined in the peer-reviewed journals you’re reading as part of your work. It can be quite daunting to review highly specific databases and publications and identify the most appropriate sources in support of your own new study, and to present your research using the most appropriate and dynamic methodology and analyses.
Much of the master’s and doctoral journey requires you to move out of your comfort zone and tackle new challenges not presented in your previous academic and professional career – from unfamiliar theories, to highly advanced statistical or qualitative methodology designs, not to mention new and complex software for analysis and findings. We can help you with each of these significant elements of your graduate research, as well as guide you through the approval process from any ethical review boards, assist you your presentation for your final defense, and perform a complete and comprehensive academic edit to fully finalize your manuscript.
Our level of support with thesis research is far more comprehensive and personalized than any other resource available.
