APA FORMAT: Produce a research proposal following the guidance given below. A research
proposal is an important document that provides a detailed description of your research project.
Proposals can vary in terms of structure and style, depending on the purpose, methodology, and
audience. A good proposal should be clear, well written, well justified in terms of topic and
method, and have a clear timetable and well-developed budget (if you are applying for funding).
Although proposals can vary, in general, they should include the following sections:
- TITLE: This should be short and explanatory. It can hint at your research question, your
methodology and your research population. If you are struggling to choose a title, brainstorm
possible titles and choose the best, or discuss possible titles with your peers.
- INTRODUCTION: Introduction. This section should contain a rationale for your research. Why
are you undertaking the project? Why is the research needed?
- RESEARCH QUESTIONS: (PLEASE INCLUDE TWO OR MORE RESEARCH QUESTIONS).
The research question is one of the most important parts of your research project. It’s important
to spend some time assessing and refining your question before you get started. The exact form
of your question will depend on the length of your project. But all research questions should be
focused, specific, appropriately complex and relevant to a social or scholarly issue. This how you
might write this section up
The research questions for this study are:
- LITERATURE: (PLEASE PROVIDE FOUR ARTICLES). A literature review summarizes and
the existing scholarly research on a particular topic. Literature reviews are a form of academic
commonly used in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities. However, unlike research
establish new arguments and make original contributions, literature reviews organize and present
research. * You need to bring all of your articles together. Maybe each member should
summarize both of
their articles and then bring them all together. Please make them make sense together.
- DATA AND METHOD: These are the tools that are used to collect your data and answer your

decided how you’re going to get information – whether by direct observation, interviews, surveys,
experiments, and testing, or other methods like context analysis.
- LIMITATIONS: The limitations of the study are those characteristics of design or methodology
that impacted or
influenced the interpretation of the finding from your research. (Just a few sentences)
- TIMELINE OF PROJECT: This should include tasks such as time taken to conduct background
questionnaire or interview schedule development and piloting, data collection, data analysis and
writing, collect articles. ( Make a timeline up). No specific way!
- RESEARCH IMPACT: This should section include how your research project may impact
society. This can
involve academic impact, economic, social impact or both
- REFERENCES AND BIBLIOGRAPHY: References and bibliography. The reference section
contains all the literature to
which you have referred in your proposal, and the bibliography contains all other relevant
that you use the correct referencing procedure required by your institution.
