Fundamentals of a Strong Proposal

Theoretical framework and introduction 

The introduction provides the audience with the information for the research done in the paper. The introduction establishes a framework for this study to enable the reader to understand the relationship it has to other research work. 

As a writer, you need to do the following in the introduction: 

  • Bolster the interest of the reader in the topic 
  • Laid the foundation for the problem that builds up to the research 
  • Infuse the study in a significant context of the literature 
  • Speak to a specific audience 

Ensure that the theory Line informs the problem statement, instruments selection, the study rationale, hypothesis, and questions, add methodology. The findings get discussed in line with their relationship to the inquiry line. 

Problem statement 

It aims to describe the study context and also identifies their approach to the analysis in general. A problem may stand for the current issue in the theory, literature, or any practice that builds up to the studies need. It is imperative that the situation stands out in a proposal and that the reader can quickly point it out. You should present the problem statement in a context and briefly explain the same context backing up with the theoretical framework discussion. Identify and explain the arising problem in the framework within the theory that undermines the study. The process requires maximum attention. Ensure that you clearly state their issues as your reader can be somebody who's existed or uninformed in your field. 

The study purpose

The statement of purpose should illuminate an accurate synopsis of the study purpose. If it does not get presented clearly, the reader cannot get it. Make a brief definition of the research area as you will exhaust this area in a later part of the text. You can also include the rationale for this study as some committees have preference over the populace and cause to get included in separate parts. 

Literature review 

It provides the context and background for the problem of research. It aims at establishing the purpose of the study and points out that the writer indeed knows the area or field of research. It accomplishes the following things: 

  • It shares the results of previous studies with the reader that get tailored to the current study 
  • It has a relationship with the legendary log on a topic in which it fills the gaps by extending past studies 
  • It illuminates a framework to establish the vitality of the research 
  • It puts the problem in a frame as identified 

You should also demonstrate to the reader and the audience that you have entirely grasped the field and that you are also aware of the vital developments in methodology. 

Avoid writing statements that propose that so little has gotten done in the field you want to explore. If you do this, the reader will see that you haven't become familiar with the literature itself. 

When writing a proposal, ensure to keep the literature review brief and relevant. Be wary of the examples you include and ensure that relevancy gets captured oil through. Ensure that you choose and reference the most important and appropriate citations.  

Most committees may want to see a section that outlines the strategy of such, including the procedures you may have used and the sources investigated. They will need that to make a compilation of literature review. Get in touch with your Department to know what to add to your section.
