Dr. Hatim Ramadan Mohamed Hussein [2]

Abstract: This paper is an attempt to discuss the growing demand for a professional academic writing which is shaping the need for a clear understanding of research identity concept. The main objectives for this paper is to outline the factors associated with students' research identity, to examine the influence of TR, L & CoP on undergraduate students' research identity and finally to recommend strategies to develop students' research identity. A survey was carried out using structured questionnaire distributed to a sample of 90 students in order to get a prompt response on students' concepts on research identity. The study revealed that there is a significance association between the independent variables i.e. Communities of Practice Transformational Learning Liminality and the dependent variable students' research identity. Further multiple regression equation was calculated the confidence interval associated with the regression analysis doesn't contain (0) which means the null hypothesis to be rejected and thus accept the alternative hypothesis i.e. there is a statistically significant association between (IVs & DV at B=, p?0.05). This recommended that students should have practical sessions in relation to the process of identifying problem statement and situation analysis, Enhancing the critical reading strategies, taking notes, building and defending arguments, improving the teaching and course delivery techniques by applying innovative techniques in relation to project management process as it will build students capabilities in planning, executing and team spirt. Further the research will benefit students' graduate attributes.
