Use the following format:
Provide a clear working title for your research which is made up of key words that are relevant to your research project. The title should inform the reader about the intention of the project and the central issue(s) that it will address.
[Not included in word count]
2. Research Overview & Context [400 words (+/- 10%)]
What are you proposing to research? What are the questions that your research will attempt to answer? Why is your proposed research important? Look back at your preliminary literature review.
As discussed, avoid broad topics and make sure that the scope of work is appropriate (i.e. it is sufficiently narrow and feasible).
3. Research Methods [1200 words (+/- 10%)]
This proposal should present your research methods including specific details to explain how you are going to conduct your research (e.g. techniques, sample size, target populations, etc.).
This section should be very detailed! Importantly, you should include 1) the types(s) data you intend to collect; and 2) the type(s) of data collection methods you intend to employ and sampling process, and 3) the research strategy you intend to adopt; and 4) the analytical tool you intend to apply to analyze your data.
For example, if you are proposing to carry out interviews, who will you interview? How many interviews will you conduct? Will there be problems of access? The same level of detail should be given for questionnaires or observations etc.
You should cover the methods that you are NOT going to use when conducting your research. Discussing what you are not going to use and why, helps to justify what you are doing. For example, if you are conducting semi-structured interviews, why have you decided to exclude structured and unstructured interviews?
This section also needs to show that you have thought about the ethical considerations of your proposed research. How, for example, will you avoid bias? How will you protect those involved in your research?
4. Research Schedule [200 words (+/- 10%)]
You should also provide a realistic schedule for completing your research which shows an appreciation of the need to plan your research and how long it is likely to take. Use the timeframe for the Final Industry Project as a reference. Effectively you have around 10 weeks to collect all your data with around 5 weeks to analyze the data and write up your project. Include a visual representation of your schedule such as a Gantt Chart, however, you must explain your schedule (e.g. Gantt Chart) using words. Explain the rationale behind the various timeframes of the various stages of your research and specific activities.
Your proposal should include a list of references to key articles and texts discussed within your research proposal which relate to the research topic and your research methods.
