research plan title
Research plan - Title
  • Informative
  • Interesting - attention catching
  • Not too long
  • Should not contain abbreviations
research plan aims hypothesis
Research plan - Aims/Hypothesis
  • State clearly the aims of the research
  • Explain the scientific hypothesis
    • Most important part of the application
    • State very clearly
    • Is it novel?
    • Is it realistic?
    • Is it possible?
    • Is it well planned?
research plan background
Research plan - Background
  • Introduce the field (generally + specifically)
  • Place the proposed research in the context of what is already known (or not known)
  • How would the proposed research add to current knowledge?
research plan work plan
Research plan - Work plan
  • Define clearly the proposed research
    • Which research questions can the work answer
    • Whom will carry out the work?
    • What facilities are needed?
    • What are the critical steps?
research plan methods
Research plan - Methods

Describe the methods of choice

  • Explain the choice
  • Are they the best to meet the objectives?
  • If novel, how do they compare with already known methods?
  • Novel methods require detailed description
  • Validation
