Writing and submitting an acceptance research proposal is not a simple task and can be exasperating experience even for the most accomplished and experienced researchers. For most graduate students pursuing masters and PhD,the time for producing a research proposal and final dissertation is considered as a period of agony and utmost suffering.In most cases out rightly detest the whole idea of writing and submitting a proposal because the whole business seems to be too complex to accomplish.Arguably,in most Universities in Africa the time for producing a dissertation/thesis proposal and its final report is probably the most frustrating moment.However,despite all these challenges associated in writing a dissertation/thesis,there are still some students who write and submit acceptable dissertation proposals within the shortest time possible or within recommended time period.Students even produce their own proposals and final dissertations well before the officially stipulated time.The purpose of this book is to guide how students can successfully write their proposals.
Tuberculosis (TB) is the major cause of death worldwide. The enormity of the problem has been further worsened by the emergence of multi-drug resistant (MDR) strains and the dual infection with HIV. A newly identified TB threat which leaves patients virtually untreatable using currently available anti-TB drugs is XDR-TB. Protein extracted from whole cell lysate (WCL) during late log growth phase often considered candidate components for diagnosis of Tuberculosis and vaccine.In any cell proteins are ultimately working moiety, therefore proteomic analysis and seroreactivity in relation to identify a molecule could be much informative. This study includes the analysis and comparison of whole cell lysate proteins of two clinical isolates with M. tuberculosis H37Rv strain and their reactivity for searching a immunodominant antigen. Present study suggest that current clinical isolate of M. tuberculosis might be valuable to characteristics some unique dominant targets for tuberculosis diagnosis and for vaccine candidate.
This handbook serves as a practical guide for students in institutions of higher learning with particular reference to their thesis and/or dissertation writing requirements. The simplistic approach in treating fundamental concepts and issues involved in a typical thesis and/or dissertation writing exercise, as adopted in the handbook, recommends it for not only students at different levels of higher institutions pursuits, but also their advising/supervising lecturers and indeed, the generality of knowledge seekers, especially in the area of research.
Over the course of his academic career, the author of this book has assisted dozens of students with their Master’s theses and doctoral dissertations and found that there were certain conceptual issues and structural challenges that many of these students shared. The author shares his experience and expertise to assist University students in cultivating an ability to conceive, develop, write, and present a research-based dissertation (or thesis). This book provides a blueprint that guides the student to develop and design a dissertation based on a five-chapter format. Each of the five chapters is introduced, dissected, and discussed in a step-by-step fashion. While the book is applicable to a wider audience and deliberately kept broad in purpose and scope, it is primarily written with a social science student in mind.
This dissertation studies an old topic in a new perspective: distributive pattern of gender wage differentials globally. It is both interesting and crucial, especially for policy-makers who attempt to eliminate gender discrimination. In addition to the empirical importance, this dissertation also explores the applications of quantile decomposition, and creatively proposes the methodology of double decomposition in studying over-time change in gender wage gaps and formulate a discriminating search model. Chapters in this dissertation have been presented in many international academic conferences including 4th Young Economist Society conference held in Guangzhou, 3rd SOLE/EALE joint conference in London, 2010 Shanghai Econometric Society World Congress, 12th conference of East Asia Economic Association in Seoul, and 2011 Singapore Economic Review.
Unlike any other book this teaches students how to generate their own ideas and develop them into original research projects. Using examples from all disciplines, it not only teaches students how to plan and research using all the qualitative and quantitative techniques and instruments, but also how to construct arguments and use evidence and language consistently. Throughout it emphasizes that writing is the most difficult form of thinking and dissertations are a test of our ability both to think and write clearly.
The main objective of this dissertation was to investigate issues of cross-border migration and their effects on the project of SADC regional integration. Indicators, in this regard, were the SADC Protocol for the Free Movement of Persons of 1995 and its successor, the SADC Protocol for the Facilitation of Free Movement of Persons of 1997, which were all failed. The dissertation traced the background of regional integration at the global, continental and regional level and compared scenarios especially on cross-border migration and movement issues. Informed by this investigation and based on the Oshikango case study in northern Namibia, this dissertation has arrived at the conclusion that SADC is currently unable to achieve its goal of regulating free movement of persons in the region.

Gaining an MBA is one of the most prestigious part of an aspiring Business Executive's life. Today's question is simply ... " should the MBA course by itself be improved to help future managers meet the challenges of tomorrow ? ". As we will come to know, there exists a thesis, otherwise known as a dissertation as part of the course. Executives enrolled in the course find it rigorous to complete. However, when they do come out successful it becomes a part of their life and they see a world that they haven't seen before. " Should the MBA curriculum be enhanced by adding yet another dissertation to the course to ensure that only the best can graduate and hold an MBA?" This book is written to answer that question. This book highlights the simple basic question of what the MBA course is and the reason why people opt for it. Along the way it explains the advantages of performing one dissertation at the end of the course. It also reveals the importance of adding yet another dissertation to it in order to upgrade the MBA curriculum. We hope by adding another dissertation we would improve MBA curriculum and Business Executive's acumen and skill to face challenges of tomorrow.
Information mediators are a proven technology for achieving one-stop integrated access to information in distributed, heterogeneous information sources. This book describes the work in a doctoral dissertation on optimizing performance in information mediators. Performance, particularly query response time, is an issue in such systems as data has to be retrieved from remote information sources at real-time. This dissertation proposes and validates a comprehensive solution to optimizing the performance by analyzing information source structure, mediator query distribution and source data update behavior.
Written out of the author’s awareness of the problems many students and young researchers encounter when writing their research papers, this book is a simplified presentation of the fundamentals of research. Its technically simple style is aimed at making the book accessible to people of all academic persuasions. Most research studies or projects begin with a written proposal. For this reason, the book starts with a section on how to write a good standard research proposal. In the second section, the book discusses in detail the way in which a research project, dissertation or thesis must be outlined once the research proposal has been accepted. Chapter three looks specifically at a journal paper/article as another very important type of research paper. It gives a brief survey of important points to bear in mind when writing a journal article as well as the structure such a paper is expected to follow. Chapter four is a brief presentation of some of the methods of citation and reference styles commonly used in research.
Project Analysis and Report The purpose of this phase is for each team to complete the project and produce a substantive team project report, and for each student to complete a comprehensive individual analysis report. These reports must be completed and approved by the advisor and one faculty reader before a student may participate in the oral examination and graduation. Timeline The timeline on the following page illustrates the process that would be followed to complete the Ed.D. degree in three-years. In order for a student to complete the program in three years, as shown on the timeline, he or she must meet all milestones at the times indicated on the timeline. Many students need to take more time to meet the milestones. Extending the milestones will extend the length of the program. For example, completing the management plan at the end of the second year will extend the program because of the time it will take to implement and complete the project. Students graduate when they complete all the requirements of the program and satisfy the graduate school review of those requirements.
This dissertation presents a comprehensive practice of quantitative approaches. The idea of the dissertation is taken from the field of psychology. Emotional intelligence competency is considered one of the most crucial components in ensuring effective leadership in school. People with excellent credentials are put in leadership position and fail because of the absence or presence of certain emotional elements. So, identify knowledge and practice of emotional intelligence competency of school heads for effective school headship was the solely purpose of the study. I believe this small attempt surely helps to unlock eye in new dimension of intelligence. Our behavior and leadership practices are the consequence of interface sandwiched between head and heart. This dissertation helps to comprehend the practice about this distress. In this schoolwork the five point Likert scale was used to collect information and analysis was made by using Mann -Whitney rank sum test, Spearman’s correlation and linear regression analysis. This dissertation specifically helps for those who are interested in psychological research and wants to travel around new idea using positivist approach.
In this dissertation, which was carried out by me in M.Tech (2007) from Ranbaxy laboratories Limited, the stability and friability of drugs in dosage and tablets forms were studied. The drug to be used for medical purposes, were checked for all possible environmental conditions including pH, temperature and humidity. The Spectrophotometer, KF Apparatus, HPLC, GLC and many more techniques are discussed in the present dissertation.
FLOW PROBLEMS WITH HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER. In this Dissertation, investigations are carried out on Natural convection flow of fluid between two infinite vertical parallel plates for different physical situations as well as different fluid properties. The different thermal conditions considered in this dissertation include symmetric and asymmetric heating of the boundaries, periodic temperature variation on the boundaries, viscous dissipation heating as well as the role of Non- Fourier energy equation on convective heat transfer. The dissertation also investigated the influence of heat generation or absorption and mass leakage (suction/injection) through the channel boundaries. Closed form solutions are obtained for momentum, energy and concentration equations for different physical situations. It is hoped that the result presented in this dissertation will be of use in validating Computer routines for numerical solutions of more complex natural convection fluid flows in the presence of heat and mass transfer and in stimulating needed experimental work in this area.
This dissertation broadly questions the desirability of the paradigm of modernity - defined as being the set of commonly shared beliefs which states that with the help of centralised governance, modern science and technologies and economic growth- for the field of sustainable development. It maps three broad approaches to sustainable development –status quo, reform and transformation- and suggests that the adoption of one position over another is often informed by pre-existing attitudes toward the desirability of the paradigm of modernity in general. All those approaches find echo in the sustainable development debate that unfolds today in India. The core of this dissertation asks whether Gandhi provides, in Hind Swaraj, a strategy for transforming India for sustainable development, providing both vocabulary of protest and an ideological critique of development in independent India. Moreover, this dissertation reflects on Gandhi’s ability to transcend paradigms to achieve a purpose, in his case the independence of India.
Creative works by faculty members in the field of film and digital media are not being adequately recognized or rewarded as scholarship activity during performance evaluation in institutions of higher learning. Conventional systems for the recognition and evaluation of work prioritize scientism and compel rigid compliance with norms, pitting individual faculty members and their creative works against an institutional model that precludes the possibility that specific and unique aspects of work will be recognized or rewarded. This dissertation supports these claims, explores appropriate alternatives, and advocates for change, relying upon quantitative and qualitative methods of inquiry, including auto/ethnographic and personalized writing, in the search for greater understanding and effective solutions. This dissertation proffers theoretically grounded recommendations, but it is not intended to be the final word on this topic. This research does not intend to advocate singular or ultimate ways for measuring artistic, scholarly, or professional works, but this dissertation can serve as a catalyst for institutional change.
This book focuses on distributed event detection and localization in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Sensor nodes are usually small, simple and cheap devices, each equipped with a processor, radio transceiver and sensing probe, and powered by a battery. A WSN consists of a large number of such nodes that form an ad-hoc network in order to deliver the sensed data to the user. One of the common applications envisioned for WSNs is that of monitoring a large region for the presence of an event source that releases a certain signal or substance in the environment. The main objective of this dissertation is to detect and localize the event from the spatially distributed information provided by the sensor nodes in a simple, localized and fault tolerant manner. For the problem of distributed detection, this dissertation proposes novel detection algorithms that exploit the spatial correlation between the measurements of sensor nodes in close proximity in order to improve the overall coverage of the sensor network. For the problem of distributed localization, this dissertation proposes algorithms that feature accuracy and robustness with respect to faults in the sensor network.
Software communities are striving for techniques and approaches that could improve developer’s productivity; reduce time-to-market, excellent performance and produce systems that are flexible, scalable, secure, and robust. Only possible solution of this problem is component-based software engineering, which has generated tremendous interest in software communities. Unfortunately, the quality attributes of the final component based system, such as its performance, scalability or reliability, are not easy to determine. For this reasons, the component-based approach, is difficult to utilize in domains in which quality attributes are of primary concern. This dissertation proposes quality model for CBSD that defines a set of quality attributes for the effective evaluation of COTS components. Further, this dissertation also suggests few necessary guidelines and proposes some relevant metrics applicable to it, which after proper quantification and validation may help guiding risk and quality management of CBSD. This dissertation may help the research scholar’s software, practitioners and students in better understanding of more relevant metrics applicable to quality management of CBSD
