Ich weiß, es gibt bereits eine Anfrage, diesen Beitrag aufzunehmen, der führte aber zu nichts und ist schon älter. Daher starte ich es nochmal. Es handelt sich um einen Fachbegriff und darf nicht mit dem Begriff "Problem" verwendet werden. Abgrenzung siehe Kommentar.
Zum deutschen Begriff:
Problemstellung = "die problemorientierte Aufgaben-, Fragestellung" http://www.dwds.de/?kompakt=1&sh=1&qu=problem...
Quellen für " problem statement":Aus einem Dokument, welches auf der Webseite von Harvard zu finden ist:
Produce a proposal with introduction, problem statement
, objectives, project description, evaluation plan, and justified budget.http://www.extension.harvard.edu/courses/syll...
A problem statement is a clear concise description of the issues that need to be addressed by a problem solving team and should be presented to them (or created by them) before they try to solve the problem.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Problem_statement
The problem statement is the most problematic issue for every writer. Your entire paper will flow from how you set up your problem [...] Your problem statement is the statement that makes a point about the issues and information you’re discussing, and is what the rest of the paper hinges upon [...] and implies some question that your paper will be answering. http://redschoolhouse.org/wc/index.php?title=...
A problem statement is a logical argument with structure, sequence, substance and rationale. [...] A well articulated statement of the problem establishes the foundation for everything to follow [...] if it can't be found in the problem section, at least at the implicit level, then it either does not belong in the study or the problem statement needs to be re-written.http://education.astate.edu/dcline/Guide/Prob...unter dem Titel "The Problem Statement in the Research Paper":
The problem provides the context for the research study and typically generates questions which the research hopes to answer. In considering whether or not to move forward with a research project, you will generally spend some time considering the problem. In your paper, the statement of the problem is the first part of the paper to be read [we are ignoring the title and the abstract]. The problem statement should "hook" the reader and establish a persuasive context for what follows. You need to be able to clearly answer the question: "what is the problem"? and "why is this problem worth my attention"? At the same time, the problem statement limits scope by focusing on some variables and not others. It also provides an opportunity for you to demonstrate why these variables are important.http://web.utk.edu/~wrobinso/540_lec_problem.html
