12. Focus your research very specifically. Don't try to haveyour research cover too broad an area. Now you may think that this willdistort what you want to do. This may be the case, but you will be ableto do the project if it is narrowly defined. Usually a broadly definedproject is not do-able. By defining too broadly it may sound better toyou, but there is a great chance that it will be unmanageable as a researchproject. When you complete your research project it is important that youhave something specific and definitive to say. This can be accommodatedand enhanced by narrowly defining your project. Otherwise you may haveonly broadly based things to say about large areas that really providelittle guidance to others that may follow you. Often the researcher findsthat what he/she originally thought to be a good research project turnsout to really be a of research projects. Do one project for yourdissertation and save the other projects for later in your career. Don'ttry to solve all of the problems in this one research project.
The objectivist definition of a social problem is perhaps more common sense because it "suggests that the essence of social problems lies in objective social conditions and that some conditions are problems."  This definition focuses around the evaluation of conditions in society to decide whether they are harmful to either individuals or society, and then defining them as social problems....

The most common problems faced by researchers in writing a thesis are problems with the thesis statement, problems with supporting the thesis, and with revising the thesis statement. A researcher should have time to time discussions with his research supervisor on various thesis-related issues. Once the research topic is finalized, the student must extensively read related literature and form the research questions. Wide reading helps in this regard. The next step is to write a research proposal. This should, ideally, include the research questions, aims and objectives of the proposed research work, the prospective methodology if the research is going to be empirical in nature and the select bibliography.
Although this may not seem like too much of an issue, studies have shown that incivility causes a variety of individual, social, and organizational problems.
