    In my opinion, theory in research might be made up of lots of different concepts, terms, ideas, and models. Often, you might apply just one theory but you will be using different aspects of different theories, bringing them together into a coherent whole.

    In layman, the theory is a tool containing all the different mechanisms through which you are going to turn the research problem into something academically.

    Firstly, identify the research problem;

    Secondly, the theory contains concepts and models (methodology);

    Thirdly, how to read your data and frame the conclusions;

    Last but not least, argue why you choose the theory and how do you use it.
