The "Nature of the Study" section of a proposal or dissertation sets up the theoretical framework for the paper. It introduces the reader to the theories, ideas, methods, and important questions raised by the study. For example, in a sociological paper looking at gender in America, the "Nature of the Study" section might discuss feminist sociology; American cultures and sub-cultures; and the use of ethnography, interviews, and other data collection methods. The "Nature of the Study" section tells the reader what questions the paper seeks to answer. A good "Nature of the Study" section also discusses important peripheral questions raised by the study and will suggest possible ideas for further research.
