  • Discuss in-depth methodology and methods of a research paper or a PhD thesis, including details such as codebooks, coding procedures, and data selection.
  • Elaborate on the scholar’s positionality, including ethnic background, nationality, gender, religion, etc., in the research process.
  • Present how the author connected the theoretical framework with the methodology.
  • Explore the implications of the pandemic on research design and practices.
  • We also encourage doctoral students to submit the methodology chapter or section of their thesis, accompanied by some theoretical background, if they wish to get some feedback on it.
