Advancing Scientific Knowledge and Significance of the Study

The purpose of this assignment is to keep the doctoral learner focused on dissertation success. The Advancing Scientific Knowledge and Significance of the Study section of the dissertation identifies the “gap” or “need” in the literature that was used to define the problem statement and develop the research questions. Further, it describes how the study will address the “gap” or “identified need.” The section describes how the research fits with and will contribute to or advance the current literature or body of research. Although this advancement may be a small step forward in a line of current research, it must add to the current body of knowledge and align to the learner’s program of study.

  1. Identify the “gap” or “need” in the literature that was used to define the problem statement and develop the research questions.
  2. Describe how your study will fit with and contribute to or advance the current literature or body of research.
