Develop your opening paragraph and background of the study or problem. Adhere to the Doctoral Phase 2 â€“ Precis section found in the CDS Dissertation Guide on CDS Central. Review the CDS Dissertation Guide on background of the problem.
Note: The opening paragraph/statement should bring the reader into the topic; the background of the study/problem should frame the problem and identify the gaps and/or deficiencies from prior research. It is important to present why the study should be pursued and for whom the study is important.
The open paragraphs can be 2 paragraphs. Then the Background of the Problem begins. Together, these should be 3-4 pages long.
Ensure use of doctoral level APA guidelines, include in-text citations and a reference page. Background will be submitted attached as base ground as well as example template instructions.
