The analysis itself should be a comparative assessment of how well the author (or authors) of the selected research have fulfilled (or not) each of the steps and sub-steps presented in figure 4.1 of the textbook (please note: it is highly recommended to review Chapters 4 through 6 in the Sekaran & Bougie book for a refresher on the earlier research processes that have been covered in this course). The focus of the analysis should be on the research process, not as much on the research content itself. Be careful not to paraphrase what the author(s) has already stated in the published research. Again the analysis should be on assessing the adherence to the research process. Look at not only each step (and sub steps) but also how each step serves as a “stepping stone” for the next step. The interrelationships among the steps are also relevant to the analysis.
