Another characteristic to consider when writing dissertation topics is marketability- how will you be able to get your target market to “buy” your project? The challenge that comes immediately after formulating your research proposal would be getting the approval of the research committee. Immediately after that would be soliciting funds. Make sure your topic is marketable- that is sellable and able to generate mass appeal so that it would have a higher possibility of getting subsidy for. If the research panel does not believe that your research is salable, then they would not readily give you financial support.
