A study's scope helps to explain the degree to which the area of research will be explored in the work and specifies the boundaries that will operate within the study.
This basically means you're going to have to define what the study will cover and what it's focusing on. Similarly, you must also define what will not be covered by the study. This is going to come under the constraints. In general, its limitations are followed by the scope of a research paper.
As a researcher, when defining your scope or focus area, you need to be careful. Remember that you may not be able to do justice to the work if you expand the scope too much or it may take a very long time to complete it.
The details you have to include in the context will usually include the following:
- The general objective of the study.
- The population or sample that you are studying
- The study's duration
- The topics or theories you are going to talk about
- The location covered in the study
