Instruction and structure
A structured project proposal will expand upon your assessment 1 (literature review), into a defensible research proposal including justification of methods and consideration of ethical issues. Guidelines and assessment criteria are available in this folder.
*I will upload the literature review from my previous work. Please write the research proposal base on the research question I have developed in my literature review.
1. Develop a focussed research question and (given) number of research aims,
2. Elucidate a rigorous research design/methodology/theoretical framework,
3. Explicate a robust methodology and/or methods,
4. Identify research strengths and limitations,
5. Address ethical implications of the research and
6. Identify resources and funding and establish a timeline.
You should develop your research plan under these headings:
1. Research title clearly identify the key elements (health issue /problem, enquiry/question + th1eoretical framework (if required) and/or methodology) of your research plan. About 10- 15 words
2. Research investigators Name all research investigators and their affiliations, that is, the organisation they work for. List the principal investigator first (that’s you), and the most senior researcher last.
3. Summary of research plan,this is your abstract. Briefly outline the main components of your research in lay language. You should use these three headings: background, hypothesis/question and design. Max 200 words.
4. Background/ description of the condition.
6. Study methods.
