Throughout this course, you will explore two critical components of your doctoral journey—the social problem and the research problem. The two are inevitably linked but also separate components of your research. You started to explore the differences between the social problem and the research problem earlier in your program, but this distinction will become increasingly important as you continue toward your dissertation or capstone project.
Before you identify your research problem, you will need to locate the social problem within both public and intellectual discourse. This will expand your knowledge and give you a better understanding of the breadth and complexities of your selected social problem. As a result of this understanding, you will start to identify a gap in the research, something that has yet to be addressed to the extent that it could or should be, leading to your research problem.
In this Assignment, you will examine how the social problem and the research problem are represented in abstracts from PhD dissertations or DSW capstone projects. This will help you further refine your distinction between the two and prepare you to explore the research gap for your selected social problem later in this course.
