So this will be the part 2 of my research proposal. I have attached the part 1 of my proposal so that you can understand the topic which I have chosen and I need to follow the same topic.
I have also attached my friend’s research proposal , just to get an idea from his work. I need to follow the same format and structure of his essay.
I have also attached a sample proposal which has been provided to me by the university.
Your second assignment in this course is to complete the Methodology and Structure sections of your research proposal.
This assignment, in conjunction with the first assignment, forms your complete research proposal, and it will serve as your map to your dissertation and should contain the follow sections:
1. Outline your key research questions.
2. Data Collection Methods: what data are you planning to use? & how are you getting your data? Source of the data – e.g., primary data collection – how? Secondary data source – where; which variables?
3. Data Analysis Techniques: how are you going analyse your data when you have collected it
4. Structure of final work: what will be the final structure of your dissertation look like, e.g. draft chapter headings, other main sections to your work, etc.?
N.B. Please remember that the Methodology section should be extensively referenced, drawing on general methodology textbooks, books that focus on particular data collection methods and analysis techniques and ethics, and related journal articles. Now, of course you will be asking how many references are required. The answer is as many as necessary… however, again, between 15 to 25 is normal.
