Example of a quantitative research proposal outline
Include a summary of thebasic Develop a Research Proposal - Sample ProposalsDevelop a Research ProposalWriting My Proposal - Sample ProposalsSample Research ProposalsReview the following sample research proposals. As you review each, consider how each element in the proposal is described and explained by the researcher, consider what is included, in what order it is shared, and how elements are combined. Lastly, consider how the researcher composed the proposal with an audience in mind, and what elements of the proposal work to persuade that audience.As you review the proposals, select ones that are in your field of study AND ones that are of interest to you.
Keep track of and reflect on what you have using Reflection: Reviewing Sample Proposals. Generally speaking, qualitative researchers attempt to describe and interpret some human phenomenon, often in the words of selected individuals (the informants). These researchers try to be clear about their biases, presuppositions, and interpretations so that others (the stakeholders) can decide what they think about it all. Unlike conventional, positivist research, there is no single accepted outline for a qualitative research proposal or report (Morse, 1991).
This article is published on November 8, 2011 Format for a quantitative research proposalI teach quantitative research proposal writing to public health students. By using lectures, a case study and discussion of presentations of the students own research proposals, I try to familiarize them with the contents of a research proposal for a quantitative study. In 2007 I developed a first draft of a format and I have been adapting that ever since.
