Formulating answerable research questions for doctoral research [Video]. YouTube. https://youtu.be/FTd0e1CKvfg
For students expecting to conduct a military-related study:
The Department of Defense and each military branch provide its own requirements on human protections and IRB approval. Which DoD regulations or limitations for conducting research are you familiar with? When is DoD approval required? In what circumstances is DoD permission not required? What changes in the research design could prevent having to meet these additional (and time-consuming) requirements? How can you expect your design to apply to a military-related study without conducting a case study with a military unit or soliciting data collection solely from active duty personnel?
