Hey everyone, I am doing my research on Identity Theft. I have just started writing my research paper and I am stuck in the very beginning. I have started writing the introduction section of my paper but in that when it comes to writing aims and objectives, i have no idea what to write, How to formulate them, How many aims and objectives should be there, is there any specific guidelines for making aims and objectives. I spend my whole day thinking about aims and objectives for my paper, there is nothing else of which i can think.
It’s quite challenging and my struggle is continuously going for 1 week, So someone help me please.
This section of your dissertation is the most important one and you should work a little harder on it as it would determine the scope, depth and the overall direction of your research.
There would be several research objectives following one research aim and several research objectives to facilitate the achievement of this aim.
Aims and Objectives should be concise, brief, interrelated. There would be a slight difference between aim and objective: aim is what you want to achieve, and the objective describes how you are going to achieve that aim. Remember that, you should be realistic while making your aims and objectives.

Here is the list of some research papers with direct link to their aims and objectives, have a look on them, you will get a basic idea of how aims and objectives are formulated, what all are things you should keep in mind while formulating them.
Everybody here will suggest you what are the points you should keep in mind while writing aims and objectives or how to write the, my suggestion or help for you would be little different as i would like to tell you the points that you shouldn’t add in aims and objectives.
Don’t be too vague, ambiguous or broad in scope.
Don’t repeat your points in different terms.
Don’t add such objectives that contradict your own research method or topix.
Make sure you formulate your aims and objectives in such a way that you achieve them at the end of your research because you need to mention them in the conclusion of your project whether you have met your objectives or not.
