the role of a research proposal
The Role of a Research Proposal
  • A research proposal offers an opportunity to clarify your thinking, bed down ideas and articulate thoughts in a way that will provide a blueprint for future action.
  • It is also a means for ‘selling’ your project and getting it off the ground.

the role of a research proposal3
The Role of a Research Proposal
  • Your proposal should convince assessors of the merits of:
  • your research question-you have clearly articulated the question and successfully argued that it is worth exploring
  • your proposed methods- you have clearly proposed a logical, practical, ethical means for answering your research question
  • you as the researcher-you have shown a requisite level of skill, knowledge, and potential.

    • introduction/background/rationale
    • literature review
    • theoretical perspectives
    • methods: limitations/delimitations
    • ethical considerations
    • timelines
    • budget/funding
    • references.

writing your proposal
Writing Your Proposal
  • Writing a winning proposal requires you to follow guidelines as close to the letter as possible.
  • Writing purposively involves good planning, knowing your subject, finding a voice, writing tightly yet sufficiently, writing for the non-expert, and being prepared to redraft.

obstacles
Obstacles
  • Obstacles can involve:
    • proposals that do not fit a committee’s requirements
    • proposals with emergent designs.
  • In both cases, being knowledgeable, confident and open will enhance chances of success.

Changes Post Approval
  • Even though it may seem painful, if you want or need to change direction/ method you are well advised to keep your approval body informed.
