Depending on your particular situation, this may involve one or several of the following steps: establishing a customized research proposal outline whose headings and sub-headings tackle your thesis / dissertation committee's assessment guidelines; showing you how to use your research proposal outline to streamline the reading and writing processes; using layman terms and examples to explain and illustrate writing objectives of the research proposal introduction, literature review and research design / methodology sections, answering your 'silly questions' and using examples to show how to apply critical thinking and other high order thinking skills to your research proposal. If necessary, bounce your thoughts off of us while writing the research proposal. By the end of this process, you will master the art of writing a good research proposal.
We are masters at offering dissertation / thesis help for writing a research proposal. As research students, we figured out how to write a research proposal the hard way. Thankfully, we excelled. However, you need not make our mistakes! Let us help you to complete a good research proposal quickly and successfully!
Introduction to your Research Proposal
Before your examiners approve your research proposal, they must feel confident that your study will make a 'meaningful contribution' to the field.
To convince them, you should cover some key discussion points that demonstrate the ‘meaningfulness’ of your project. If the introduction section of your research proposal adequately shows ‘meaningfulness’, it may easily be transformed into an abridged version of the introduction chapter of your thesis or dissertation. Do not doubt your ability if you feel anxious about writing the introduction. This is common among thesis and dissertation students. Even if you have not yet figured out how your study addresses the critical discussion points, you can learn about and establish them as writing objectives for your introductory section.
Consequently, you will be focused as you develop your ideas for the introduction of not only the research proposal but also the final research paper. Furthermore, since the introduction will provide you with needed direction for all other chapters, your clarity in the introduction of your proposed research project will save you much heart ache and time later on.
Ask for help on how to effectively write the introduction of your research proposal (or the final research project). Your tutor or coach can also show you with the help of examples.
Critical Literature Review
Your dissertation or thesis tutor / coach can help you to successfully manage and complete this often overwhelming stage. Depending on your particular situation, this can involve one or several approaches that include: understanding the purpose of your literature review; developing a customized outline that will streamline the otherwise tedious reading and writing processes; knowing the best sources of literature; explaining and even illustrating how examiners expect you, an unpublished research student, to 'critically analyze' the work of leading published academics and, (for social science projects), spotting clues for operationalizing your research constructs.
Do not make the common mistake of aimlessly reading and writing. Your tutor, coach or consultant can show you how to streamline your reading and writing efforts.
Writing a Research Design / Methodology for a Research Proposal
In the case of many theses and dissertations, this chapter marks the point at which your project becomes truly creative. Additionally,. the reliability, validity and or trustworthiness of the results of your research project will depend heavily on the strength of your research design and methodology.
Consequently, this section is often the single most heavily weighted in the marking scheme of many research programs. Get your personal research tutor, coach or consultant to guide you through making sound research design and methodology decisions.
Such help often includes deciding on the most feasible and suitable research philosophy / philosophies, research approach(es), research strategy / strategies, data collection method(s), appropriate sampling design, sample size, data collection and data analysis processes.
Ask your Dissertation Dragon tutor or coach to help you to formulate a sound research design / methodology section. In some cases, your tutor, coach or consultant can also suggest ethical workarounds for methodological challenges.
Data Analysis Plan
When writing a research proposal stage, you should explain how you will analyze data and report your findings. For instance, for quantitative research projects, this often involves using several statistical tests like Cronbach alpha (to test the reliability and, in turn valiity of your data collection instrument), descriptive statistics (to meaningfully describe your sample) and inferential statistics (to directly answer your research question).
Ask a tutor, coach or consultant to discuss the most feasible and suitable data analysis methods for your study.
Need Feedback on your Research Proposal?
A project quality review by a Dissertation Dragon consultant involves providing you with detailed feedback. Your thesis or dissertation consultant will review your project and respond by email with comments and suggestions for improvement.
This service is primarily concerned with ensuring that you have produced quality content that meets chapter objectives. Consequently, project quality reviews do NOT focus on matters usually associated with editing. In other words, despite the occasional edit, do not expect your thesis or dissertation consultant to dwell on issues like spelling and grammar. Instead, expect to be engaged in ways that will enhance your project's scholastic quality. For instance, discussions may develop about your definitions, choices and justifications for a particular research design. In short, the aim is to help you to demonstrate solid scholastic maturity.
Prepare for the oral presentation / examination / defense / viva voce
Depending on your particular school requirements, you may need to make an oral presentation, sometimes called a 'defense' or 'viva voce' of your proposed and or final research project. You are expected to act the part of the leading expert (of your dissertation / thesis topic) among fellow scholars.
Ask your Dissertation Dragon tutor or coach to help you to prepare for this oral presentation or examination.
