Formulating a Research Topic: from Necessary Prerequisites to More Precise Requirements
The current trend is to defend theses with headings which are not precise enough, resulting in inevitable difficulties both for the applicant for doctor’s degree and for the members of the specialized board. The research topic is the object of the analysis and the subject of the analysis is the mechanism of its formulation. Descriptive assessment approach is adopted. The study consists of three topical units: preconditions, requirements and axioms of formulating the research topic. The author has tried to describe the overall technology of formulating such a topic and to point out the most frequent failures of this process.
