Objectives & Methods

To write an academic research proposal is most likened to writing a proposal that addresses a project. The main difference is that the research proposal is a plan to conduct either academic or scientific research, not to develop a project. It is basically outlining proposed research on an academic subject and outlining any types of procedures for quantitative or qualitative research on a subject.

A research proposal for academic writing analyzes a topic and proposes a theory for that topic that may not have been used before. You will normally see this sort of proposal as a precursor to a doctoral dissertation or a Master’s Degree level thesis paper.

Highlights

The proposal will introduce what the research proposes to do and/or prove. It will also give an in depth account of the methods and theories that will be used to support the hypothesis within the project. The proposal encompasses argumentative writing as well as hardcore research. It will usually contain reviews of various books which support the thesis or hypothesis that it proposes to prove.
