Hi, I am a social science PhD candidate using Neural Network stat as part of my research method. I am seeking PhD dissertations in social science, or anything similar, using Neural Network so that I can see as an example.

Also, is there any recommended book regarding Neural Network stat for social science? The one I have found was written way too long ago, I need a more recent book. Any advise would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks Ian. I've tried searching on Google Scholar, but haven't come across anything close yet. Got some articles that useful though. I will look around searching for more.

Thanks Fled. I got a lot from you, I really appreciated your help ^^

My background is in IT, so this is a twist for me converting to social science lol. I'm not giving up, though I might crawl back to my comfort corner and whine a bit too often, that's all lol.

Since you've already helped me get a good start, I will take this opportunity to hear your thought a little further lol. Hope you don't mind *_*

This is embarrassing but here's my explanation of what I've planned to do; I've planned to study the retirement village businesses in Australia, see how they are done, how it works, etc. My target clients would be foreigners because Thai people wouldn't except the idea of staying in the village or sending parents to one; it's culture thing. Then I would study the retirees in the villages, as my samples, to see what they think how a Thai retirement village should be for them to be interested in leasing and moving into one. This is to expand real estate industry in Thailand by introducing new venture, and gain more foreign buyers.

My research would be on elderly preferences of what they think is an ideal village in thailand, then such village prototype could be made. My dissertation would be practical. Property developers could use my research as guideline to build this village business. For example, the research might find that most elderly want a village that close to a beach or shopping mall. They want to have clubhouse as well. And, they want a doctor to visit once a week and have nurses on site. Etc.

The title would be "A study of new business venture for Thailand's real estate sector targeting foreign clients: Case study of retirement village business in Australia and Australian senior citizen preferences".

...

What do you think? *_*
How's the idea and the title? *_*
Anyone? *_*

Thanks a lot for the tips, Fled. I don't have any one that can be my conceptual partner, except my supervisor which I haven't got one yet lol. All 3 masters I have were from coursework, so I have little to none research background, I can't even have a conceptual conversation with myself lol. Feeling lost here :(

Thanks again. I do not have a supervisor yet. In Thailand, or maybe it is just this university I am studying, as a PhD student we have to take course work for a year and pass the course exam first before being qualified for a supervisor. I guess I could start approaching supervisors now but I think it is a good idea to at least have a topic and an idea quite ready before talking to them.

Funny is I actually wrote a long reply but then by doing that I started to get an idea which, I guess, enough to discuss with the supervisors further, so I removed those long rambling of mine and left just this lol. Any advice will always be appreciated though, especially similar dissertation that I can study as guideline. Thanks again.

Hi, I'm stumped for a topic and I'm in need for suggestions. Graduated from Australia, currently I'm studying a PhD in Business in Thailand. I have a rough idea about doing research on bringing/introducing retirement village business to Thailand using Australian retirement village business as a model. Since there is no such thing as retirement village business in Thailand, there's possibility/opportunity for the business to grow here. However, the more I think about it, the more it appears as business plan in my mind, not a dissertation. Is there any dissertation doing similar idea/angel I can take as an example? Could anyone suggest me a topic and guide me into the right direction? Please advise. :/

Hi, here's another thread of scary story of one looking to study phd heh.
I'm very much interested in web development area since it's my expertise.
I have 3 masters in IT-related and have been working as a web developer for 10 years, now thinking of getting back to school!
The thing is I can't think of any specific topic in this area :-(
probably like many people when start thinking of study phd (or it's just me? :$ )
It would be good if it involves in building a web system, since I feel a bit more comfortable in practical stuff heh.
Since I've left school for quite a long while I'm a bit lost in where to start.
Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks.
