    Abstract:
    Original doctoral research requires a niche contribution to a boundless, colossal, and prodigious corpus of existing scholarship. The efficacy of original research is grounded in the justification of its thesis through meticulous research and defensive justification. This article presents the doctoral researcher with two algorithmic stepwise processes by which an argument, proposal, theme, or thesis may be rigorously defended and justified using logical argumentation. Justification for quantitative and qualitative research conclusions are grounded in deductive and inductive frameworks using positive and interpretive methods, respectively. A practical, hybrid synthesis of these two competing frameworks is proposed and empirical validation of data through statistical analysis is summarized.
