NOTE: Academic writing frequently involves combining primary and secondary research. In any case, you need to ask the professor the same questions: What research methods or techniques am I expected to use? What types of sources should I consult? How many sources am I supposed to consult? What analytical approaches to my source materials are permitted or required?
Analytical Research delivers actionable insights through an array of rigorous quantitative and qualitative research and analysis methods. We strive to provide invaluable help for decision makers by producing findings that are both rational and accurate. Our services include:
The best way to describe what a research paper is may be to describe what a research paper is not. A research paper is not an encyclopedia that lists every detail you have discovered about a topic. Nor is it a “literature review” that summarizes the current body of knowledge about a subject. Rather, a research paper is a piece of analytical writing, an essay in which you survey what experts know or have said about a topic and then compare or synthesize their thoughts with your own insights or opinions.
Analytical Research Ltd is an independent research organisation that provides professional quantitative and qualitative research for both the public and private sectors.
While writing a good thesis for analytical paper, one needs to remember that it is thought out to be the affirmation, suggested by the author in the capacity of the problem or the main idea; after that, it is being developed and proved by means of the certain arguments in some discussion. In the simplest terms, the thesis statement is the sentence where you inform the reader what you are writing about, and what your main arguments on the topic are.
Your analytical paper thesis statements have to be congruent. If not, it means that your essay does not contain the connection between the statement and arguments; in other words, you have formulated what you thought was or will be the main idea, but it has nothing in common with the essay content. Also, there are other cases. For example, your paper was too extended and, with the help of arguments, you developed only one side of the question (in this case, the statement should be concretized).
In the analytical research paper (also known as exploratory or informational) you should learn about the topic and inform your reader about what you have learned. If there are different opinions, you should report all of them; if there is a controversy, you should explain what both sides believe. Although analytical papers are governed by athesis—a sentence that establishes the controlling idea or main point of your paper—they do not take sides on an issue.
In the argumentative research paper, however, you should take a stand on an issue and try to persuade your reader to adopt or concur with your position. Like the analytical research paper, an argumentative paper should be driven by a thesis, but in this case, your thesis statement should establish your position on a debatable topic. You should support your argument with evidence gleaned from your research.
In either case, your paper should present your thoughts and ideas about a subject, supported by the knowledge and opinions of experts in the field. And remember: Just because something is in print or on the Internet, it is not necessarily “the Truth.” Whether you are writing an analytical or an argumentative research paper, you should think critically, not only about the subject, but also about the sources you find. Analyze your sources by evaluating their authority, credibility, accuracy, and objectivity.
Analytical Research has strong abilities in terms of performing sophisticated statistical analyses and interpreting their findings within their respective research context. As our conclusions are based on well-designed and relevant techniques, our methodlogies consistently provide our customers with well supported findings, that have a wide range of applications. These applications include helping policy makers to make more effective decisions now, as well as guiding their planning when it comes to designing appropriate policies for the future.
Analytical Research Ltd was commissioned by a leading UN organization to help setting up a framework for social development strategy for a GCC country. We had the lead responsibility of the pillar focusing on social care development over the next 25 years, covering objectives, legislations and estimated budget. The project constituted of several stages, including field surveys, data analysis, workshops with various stakeholders including Ministers and Under Secretaries. In developing a new model, special attention was given to data and its analysis along with the evidence available from global good practice on different thematic areas. We paid attention to draw on global models of care and social rights while observing culture and traditional values taking advantage of the positive aspects of the GCC context. The strategy is designed to increase the protection and respect of the rights of women, children, older people, and people with disabilities and to draw more on the active role of the state for support and protection working in partnership with individuals and the community. This strategy constitutes a significant development in the Gulf area and likely to have implications over neighbouring countries.
As part of Analytical Research Ltd's financial analysis portfolio, we constructed various stock-price modelling methods, investigating causalities between different stocks and evaluating trading algorithms (see related ). Models based on time series analysis were implemented to estimate volatility, including GARCH models; various other econometrics and multivariate statistical techniques have also been used for risk management.
