Module 4 - Case

REVISING THE DSP RESEARCH PROSPECTUS

Assignment Overview

Within Module Case 4 you will conduct a peer-review of a fellow classmate’s DSP prospectus (Chapters 1-3). The Peer Review Process is an essential activity within the academic community. The process assists in quality assurance and a formal/critical review of scholarly writing and research. The peer-review process also allows for additional viewpoints and critiques of one’s academic work to aid and assist within the editing and content continuous improvement of one’s scholarly writing.

Case Assignment

It is very important that you provide the author with constructive criticism and structure on improving the DSP prospectus. In your review, it is essential to know what specific changes you would like to see based on the peer-review template that is provided. It is not enough to just point out potential problems with the proposed study. Highlight the problematic areas that you feel are critical and must be addressed. Where possible, provide suggestions or references on how to overcome these obstacles.

Provide review feedback of your assigned peer-DSP prospectus based on the following areas:

1. Conceptual Significance
The work represents an important contribution to knowledge. It extends or challenges present causal assumptions in the IS theory or knowledge base. It uses theories from IS or reference disciplines to explain the relationships among variables in the study. Ties to relevant literature are clear as is the thrust of the central argument. The work explicates underlying assumptions well and provides direction for extending or improving on the present research.

2. Practical Significance
The work contributes to our understanding of current technological and organizational problems or challenges faced by IS or other practitioners. In presenting an interesting paradigm or data analysis technique, it maintains readership interest.

3. Conduct of Research
Methods, subjects, and techniques are well suited to the exploration of the research questions. Where relevant, the work demonstrates appropriate operationalization of conceptual constructs and an acceptable degree of internal and/or external validity; the choice of statistical and/or mathematical analysis is appropriate as is the interpretation of results. Study results are objective and in such a form that other researchers could replicate the work. The work adheres to generally accepted standards for scientific ethics.

4. Logical Presentation of Research
The flow of ideas in the paper is logical and there is a clear tie between literature review and method and a clear link between method and results. The work is presented at a level of sophistication and length appropriate to the readership of an applied research project.

5. Clarity of the Writing
The work adopts a professional style and tone and is concise. It is grammatically correct and clear in its use of the English language. Figures and tables are clear and understandable; accurate and descriptive titles, legends, and labels are present.

Module 4 Discussion: 

Understanding the Peer-Review Process and Quality Assurance in Academia

Within the Discussion Board area, write 400-600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions with your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

Quality assurance is a holistic approach covering all the processes in academic research, in order to serve the students and other stakeholders in expected quality standards. The success of a quality assurance system depends on the support of academicians and the supporting academic institution.

Keeping this in mind, using at least two scholarly citations from peer-reviewed journal articles, make an argument for the peer-review manuscript process as a form of quality assurance in academia. Also, point out within the position statement why garnering supporting and differing viewpoints of one’s scholarly writing help aid in the overall research and discovery process of writing.

 

Responses to Other Students: Respond to at least 2 of your fellow classmates with at least a 100-word reply about their Primary Task Response regarding items you found to be compelling and enlightening. To help you with your discussion, please consider the following questions:

 

· What did you learn from your classmate's posting?

· What additional questions do you have after reading the posting?

· What clarification do you need regarding the posting?

· What differences or similarities do you see between your posting and other classmates' postings?
