Conceptual Framework for postpartum depression- sociocultural Qualitative Analysis of Adolescent and adult mothers. (one page)
[Identify and define the concept/phenomenon that grounds the study. Describe concisely the conceptual framework (for qualitative studies, the distinctive ideas; for
quantitative studies, a description of the body of research that supports the need for the study) as derived from the literature, with reference to a more detailed
analysis in Chapter 2. State the logical connections among key elements of the framework with a reference to a more thorough explanation in Chapter 2. State how the
framework relates to the study approach and key research questions as well as instrument development and data analysis where appropriate. Note: A framework is a
container for ideas, information, and such. A theory is a body of knowledge that is explanatory and predictive. For example, Porter’s value chain is a framework, while
Ricardo’s comparative advantage is a theory..]
Nature of the Study (one page)

methodology –Qualitative (from whom and how data are collected and how data will be analyzed).
Definitions (one page)
[Provide concise definitions of key concepts or constructs. Define terms used in the study that have multiple meanings (e.g., socioeconomic status, educator, health
service professional). Do not include common terms or terms that can easily be looked up in a dictionary. Include citations that identify support in the professional
literature for the definition or operational definition. Notes: The term should be indented the same as a paragraph indent, italicized, and terminated with a colon,
with the definition itself in plain type, sourced, and listed alphabetically.
Assumptions (1/2 page)
[Clarify aspects of the study that are believed but cannot be demonstrated to be true. Include only those assumptions that are critical to the meaningfulness of the
study. Describe the reasons why the assumption(s) was/were necessary in the context of the study.
Scope and Delimitations (1/2 page)
[Describe specific aspects of the research problem that are addressed in the study and why the specific focus was chosen. Define the boundaries of the study by
identifying populations included and excluded and theories/conceptual frameworks most related to the area of study that were not investigated. Address potential
[Describe limitations of the study related to design and/or methodological weaknesses (including issues related to limitations of transferability and dependability).
Describe any biases that could influence study outcomes and how they are addressed. Describe reasonable measures to address limitations.
Significance to Practice- (one page)
[Identify potential contributions of the study that advance practice and/or policy (as applicable).]
Significance to Theory (one page)
[Identify potential contributions of the study that advance knowledge in the discipline. This is an elaboration of what the problem addresses.]
Significance to Social Change (one page)
[Describe potential implications for positive social change that are consistent with and bounded by the scope of the study.]
Chapter 2: Literature Review (1/2 a page)
[Restate the problem and the purpose. Provide a concise synopsis of the current literature that establishes the relevance of the problem. Preview major sections of the
chapter. Note: This section should be less than a page in length.]
Literature Search Strategy (one page)
[List accessed library databases and search engines used. List (and italicize) key search terms and combinations of search terms (with more detailed search terms
located in an appendix if appropriate). Describe the iterative search process by explaining what terms were used in what database to identify germane scholarship. In
cases where there is little current research, and few (if any) dissertations and/or conference proceedings, describe how this was handled. Note: This section should be
between one and three pages in length.]
Theoretical Foundation –Grounded theory (one page)
[Include only the Theoretical Foundation and as provided in Chapter 1
Name the theory or theories. Provide origin or source of the theory. Describe major theoretical propositions and/or major hypotheses, including delineation of any
assumptions appropriate to the application of the theory. Provide a literature- and research-based analysis of how the theory has been applied previously in ways
similar to the current study. Provide the rationale for the choice of this theory. Describe how and why the selected theory relates to the present study and how the
research questions relate to, challenge, or build upon existing theory.
Literature Review ( 5 pages)
[Provide an exhaustive review of current literature that includes the following information regarding the key concepts of the study.
Describe studies related to the constructs of interest and chosen methodology –(qualitative )and methods that are consistent with the scope of the study. Describe ways
researchers in the discipline have approached the problem and the strengths and weakness inherent in their approaches. Justify from the literature the rationale for
selection of the concepts. Review and synthesize studies related to the key concepts and/or phenomena under investigation to produce a description of what is known
about them, what is controversial, and what remains to be studied. Review and synthesize studies related to the research questions and why the approach selected is
Chapter 3: Research Method
[Restate the study purpose as described in Chapter 1. Preview the major sections of the chapter. Note: This section should be less than a page in length.]
Research Design and Rationale (one page)
[Restate research questions exactly as written in Chapter 1. State and define central concept(s)/phenomenon(a) of the study. Identify the research tradition (e.g.,
qualitative and the selected design such as narrative research, case study, phenomenology, ethnography, or grounded theory). Provide a rationale for the chosen
tradition. Explain why other possible choices would be less effective.
Role of the Researcher ( one page)
[Define and explain your role as observer, participant, or observer-participant. Reveal any personal and professional relationships you, as the researcher, may have
with participants, with emphasis on supervisory or instructor relationships involving positions of power with the participants. State how any researcher biases and/or
power relationships are or will be managed. Describe other ethical issues as applicable (these could include doing a study within one’s own work environment, conflict
of interest or power differentials, and justification for use of incentives) and the plan for addressing these issues.
Methodology- Qualitative ( one page)
[Needs to be described in sufficient depth so that other researchers can replicate the study.]
Participant Selection Logic (2pages)
[Identify the population (if appropriate). Identify and justify the sampling strategy. State the criterion/a on which participant selection is based. Establish how
participants are known to meet the criterion/a. State the number of participants/cases and the rationale for that number. Explain specific procedures for how
participants will be identified, contacted, and recruited. Describe the relationship between saturation and sample size. Notes: Qualitative phenomenological studies
should have a sample size of 20 participants or until saturation occurs. Sample sizes for other qualitative studies may vary. For example a case study may collect data
from appropriate participants with other data coming from observations, or other collected data sets.
Issues of Trustworthiness
[Credibility (internal validity): Describe appropriate strategies to establish credibility, such as triangulation, prolonged contact, member checks, saturation,
reflexivity, and peer review.
Transferability -1/2 page
[Transferability (external validity): Describe appropriate strategies to establish transferability, such as thick description and variation in participant selection.
Dependability- Transferability -1/2 page
[Dependability (the qualitative counterpart to reliability): Describe appropriate strategies to establish dependability, such as audit trails and triangulation.
Confirmability- Transferability – one page
[Confirmability (the qualitative counterpart to objectivity): Describe appropriate strategies to establish confirmability, such as reflexivity.
Ethical Procedures- Transferability – one page
[Agreements to gain access to participants or data. Include actual documents in the Institutional Review Board (IRB) application. Describe the treatment of human
participants including the following (include actual documents in the IRB application):
• Institutional permissions, including IRB approvals that are needed (for the proposal) or were obtained (for the completed dissertation, include relevant IRB
• Ethical concerns related to recruitment materials and processes and a plan to address them.
• Ethical concerns related to data collection/intervention activities. These could include participants’ refusing participation or early withdrawal from the
study and response to any predicable adverse events and a plan to address them.
Describe treatment of data, including archival data, including issues of:
• Whether data are anonymous or confidential and any concerns related to each.
• Protection for confidential data (i.e., data storage procedures, data dissemination, who will have access to the data, and when the data will be destroyed).
Other ethical issues as applicable: These issues could include doing a study within one’s own work environment, conflict of interest or power differentials, and
justification for use of incentives.
