It is NOT intended as a document to guide you through your research proposal development, but to assist you in setting out the proposal, in terms of text layout, section headings and sub-sections. The Research Proposal is a complete description of the intended research, developed under the supervision of the assigned supervisor. Through the full proposal, the student needs to demonstrate convincingly that the study will make a contribution to a public health issue or problem. The full research proposal must be between 5 and 10 pages and should present the following: TitleBrief IntroductionBackground and statement of the problem (this in the light of a thorough literature review)Research question or hypothesis, aim and objectivesStudy design (type of study)Study population and samplingData collection methods and instrumentsData analysis methods – if applicable statistical planning must be fully addressed, or the candidate should provide evidence that statistics are not required.Mechanisms to assure the quality of the study – e.g. control of bias, safe storage of dataStudy period – Timetable for completion of the projectParticipants in the study – all people involved in the study, and the role they play, should be identified.*Ethical considerationsResources required for the study, including budget if applicableReferencesAppendices (copy of questionnaire, consent forms, etc.) How to use this template: DOWNLOAD THE ELECTRONIC VERSION ON NEWLEARNING The template provides ALL the sections, headings and subheadings that you will require in your proposal, as well as the line and paragraph spacing, page breaks, page numbering, referencing system and referencing styles. You should simply edit the text where appropriate and insert your own text as per your proposal, i.e simply type into the document. Do not attempt to change the styles for the headings or subheadings, and do not attempt to use more than three level headings (i.e A main heading, a sub-heading and a sub-sub-heading). WHEN YOU ARE DONE, DELETE THIS FRONT INSTRUCTION PAGE FROM YOUR PROPOSAL If you feel you are sufficiently computer literate, you could add this template to your Templates directory in your Office system files. This will allow you to select this template at any time in the future when you prepare proposals. To do this, go to the “Menu Bar”, select File > Save As…, when the dialog box appears, at the bottom, under “save as type”, select “Document Template”. The MS Office Templates directory automatically appears. You could name your file “Proposal Template” (which should appear as a default in the dialog box, at the bottom, under “Save As”). Your template is now saved in the C:Documents and SettingsUserApplication DataMicrosoftTemplates directory. When you next wish to use this template, click on File > New, the “task pane” that appears on the right side of your screen will prompt you to use a template, click on “on my computer…”, and from the dialog box that appears, select your template “Proposal Template”. This brings up the template with all its saved fonts, paragraph settings etc. Once again, simply insert your text, and this time, save your file normally, and NOT as a template! When you have finished typing, then return to the Contents Page, place your cursor on the greyed out section, right click with the mouse, and select “Update entire table”  TITLE OF YOUR PROJECT HERE   STUDENT NAME:                          Type your name here STUDENT NUMBER:                    Enter your student number COURSE NAME:                             Access to Higher Education Diploma in DEPARTMENT:                              Advanced Studies, Newham College of Further Education COURSE CODE:                             1F-ACCP-       SUPERVISOR:                                 Type your supervisor’s name here DATE OF SUBMISSION:               DD MMMM 20YY CONTENTS Background………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. viii introduction……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. viii Sub Heading…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. ix Referencing……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. ix problem statement………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. viii Overview……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. viii Research Question/Hypothesis…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. viii OBJECTIVES AND AIMS……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… viii Overall Objective……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. viii Specific Aims…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. viii research design and methods……………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. viii Overview……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. viii Population and Study Sample…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… viii Sources and Collection of Data……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… viii Data Analysis………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. viii Ethics and Human Subjects Issues……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. viii Timeframes……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. viii Appendices…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… viii references……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. ix Background Background/ Historical context/ Literature Review introduction problem statement Overview Research Question/Hypothesis OBJECTIVES AND AIMS Overall Objective Specific Aims METHODS research design and methods Overview Population and Study Sample Sources and Collection of Data Data Analysis Ethics and Human Subjects Issues Timeframes Appendices references You will need to use a conventional style of referencing you may use the one of the following: Harvard referencing: In-text citation “An effective structure is important” (Redman, 2006, p.22)Reference list Redman, P., 2006. Good essay writing: a social sciences guide. 3rd ed. London: Open University in assoc. with Sage. American Psychological Association: Author, I. N. (Year). Title of the article. Title of the Journal or Periodical, volume number, page numbers. Or Smith, L. V. (2000). Referencing articles in APA format. APA Format Weekly, 34, 4-10. The Footnote / Bibliography or ‘Oxford’ Referencing System: The Footnote/ Bibliography method requires two elements: footnotes throughout your assignment, and a bibliography or list of references at the end.    How do I do a footnote? Putting a small number above the line of type directly following the source material. This number is called a note identifier. It sits slightly above the line of text. It looks like this.1 hEADINGS Use heading 1 from the selection above for your main heading. use all caps, do not use anything else as the table of contents has been automated to use this setting Sub Heading Use Heading 2 from the selection of styles on the menu bar above. Do NOT use all capitals, but write as is shown above. Do not use anything else as the Table of Contents has been automated to include this style for a subheading. Referencing When do your referencing, use the automatic system provided by Microsoft Word. To use this, from the Menu bar, go to Insert > Reference > Footnote. Now select Endnote > end of document. For the options, select Number format > 1, 2, 3; Custom mark > leave blank; Start at > 1; Numbering > continuous. If you do this, you will see a superscript inserted at the point of your cursor, as in this example, with the cursor automatically going to the end of your document for you to insert your reference details[i]. This keeps a continuous numbering system as you progress through your proposal. Once you are done, you could move this from the last page to the last page before the Appendices.

The headings and styles give an indication of the sections required in the research project. The report should be typed, using double-line spacing, and be 3 000 words in length. Start by providing a preliminary title on the cover page, this should convey the key words associated with the proposed research. 2.                overview or background Give an overview of the subject area. By way of introduction, this reading section of the existing literature should take the form of an abstract of the general subject or study area and identify the discipline(s) within which it falls. From this analysis, the problem or disorder you wish to research will emerge and constitutes the reason or condition, which necessitates the research. 3.                research focus This is where you explain the research problem, question and aim 3.1          Research problem From the overview of the subject, area follows the research problem, i.e. you have to identify the possible cause(s) of the disorder. This section states the problem that you are exploring. 3.2          Research question The research question is specific, concise, and clear. The research question can be expanded upon by stating sub-questions. 3.3          Research aim Next, you have to describe the research aim as it relates to solving the uncertainty or burning question you are interested in. 4.                Literature review In this section, you should demonstrate that you are familiar with the debates and issues raised in related literature. You should furnish a description of recent academic and empirical research in your chosen area. References to key texts and recently published articles should be made to convince that you appreciate their integrative relevance to your research area. Demonstrate that the problem is worthy of investigationShow that you have considered the value of past research.The literature review generally has an introduction main body and conclusions.In this section, you should have quotations, citations and references.5.                research methodology Outline the methodology to be used. In its most widely used description, research methodology relates to the nature of the scientific method used. You need to display an awareness of the available methodologies for data collection and show a clear understanding of the methodologies that would be most suitable for your research. It may be that qualitative methods are appropriate, e.g. case studies and group discussions. Alternatively, your research may involve quantitative aspects relating to statistics and finance. In many instances, you will be combining methodologies. You are expected to outline the design you consider most appropriate, i.e. how the research would be conducted. Typically, reference is made here to the type of data you will need, the nature of data collection (questionnaire development, sampling, type of survey, etc.), processing and interpretation. 5.1          qualitative research 5.2          quantitative research You need to select the appropriate proposed methodology.
