Tick the relevant box.I submitted my ethics application and my application has been approved. I include myethics certificate in the appendix as evidence. I submitted my ethics application and my application is currently under review. I have not submitted my ethics application.Section B – Project ProposalProduce a project proposal (suggested length 1500 words) that encapsulates your project ideaand which provides a detailed research plan of the steps you will undertake to address yourresearch question. Your proposal should include the following sections:1. Research Question, Problem Statement or Topic for InvestigationProvide a clear outline of the research question, practical problem or primary investigation thatyou will be undertaking for your project. Useful questions to address would be: what is thequestion or problem you are addressing, what evidence is there that this is a real problem, whatapproach or method are you going to take to address the problem.2. Intended user or group of users and their requirementsIn this section you should address who will benefit from your findings and how they will benefit.(note: ‘greater knowledge about’ is defined as a benefit – even if your audience is mainly otheracademic researchers, new data, if collected using scientific principles, adds to the body ofknowledge about the topic). Who are the intended user or group users? Why you think there isneed for this project? What are the needs of the intended user that your product should satisfy?]3. Systems requirements, project deliverables and final project outcomeIn this section you should address what the characteristics/properties that the final productshould possess? What are the process stages and the corresponding deliverables that will enableyou to create the final product? Describe, as clearly as possible, what outcome your project aimsto produce in relation to the original question, investigation or problem statement.4. Primary Research PlanThis is the plan as to how you will go about answering your detailed research question orapproach your practical problem – It must include a primary research method (an extendedliterature review is not an acceptable primary method). Think and plan logically. Primarymethods may include experiments, applications or software demonstrators, process models,simulations, surveys, analysis of existing or generated data … you may wish to suggest a timelineor simply set out a sequence of tasks. Where you intend to collect data think about how muchdata you need and how long the collection process will take. Make reasonable assumptionsabout the amount of work you can do and try not to ‘over-promise’ on results – most scientificresearch is small scale and time limited, this is even more the case with student projects whereyou also have competing modules.

Initial/Mini Literature ReviewUsing the University Library e-journal database, the ACM portal database or Google Scholar,identify and select between three and five research papers relating to your topic. Try and identifypapers that are relatively current (within the last three years). A literature review is a selectanalysis of existing research, which is relevant to your topic. It explains and justifies how yourinvestigation may help answer some of the questions or gaps in this area of research. A literaturereview is not a straightforward summary of everything you have read on the topic and it is nota chronological description of what was discovered in your field. Use your literature review to: Show how your project will relate to previous studies. Compare and contrast different authors’ views on an issue – note areas in which authorsare in disagreement. Highlight current exemplary studies Highlight any gaps in research that may provide you with a starting point for your project Highlight any good approaches that may allow you to develop a project idea furtherThe key to the mini-literature review is your critical and evaluative perspective on the literaturereviewed. Use the review to make a case/argument as to why your own researchproject is necessary/important.6. Bibliography (key texts for your literature review)Please provide references, in correct referencing style, for the research papers that haveinformed your literature review. The references should be recent and sufficiently technical oracademic. Your markers will be looking for you to identify technical reports, conference papers,journal papers, and recent text books. Avoid Wikipedia entries, newspaper reports that do notcite sources, and general or introductory texts.Notes:1. You are expected to use the Coventry University APA style for referencing. For support and advice on this students can contactCentre for Academic Writing (CAW).2. Please notify your registry course support team and module leader for disability support.3. Any student requiring an extension or deferral should follow the university process as outlined here.4. The University cannot take responsibility for any coursework lost or corrupted on disks, laptops or personal computer. Studen tsshould therefore regularly back-up any work and are advised to save it on the University system.5. If there are technical or performance issues that prevent students submitting coursework through the online coursework submissionsystem on the day of a coursework deadline, an appropriate extension to the coursework submission deadline will be agreed. Th isextension will normally be 24 hours or the next working day if the deadline falls on a Friday or over the weekend period. This will becommunicated via your Module Leader.6. Assignments that are more than 10% over the word limit will result in a deduction of 10% of the mark i.e. a mark of 60% will lead to areduction of 6% to 54%. The word limit includes quotations, but excludes the bibliography, reference list and tables.7. You are encouraged to check the originality of your work by using the draft Turnitin links on Aula.8. Collusion between students (where sections of your work are similar to the work submitted by other students in this or previousmodule cohorts) is taken extremely seriously and will be reported to the academic conduct panel. This applies to both coursew orksand exam answers.9. A marked difference between your writing style, knowledge and skill level demonstrated in class discussion, any test conditio ns andthat demonstrated in a coursework assignment may result in you having to undertake a Viva Voce in order to prove the courseworkassignment is entirely your own work.10. If you make use of the services of a proof reader in your work you must keep your original version and make it available as ademonstration of your written efforts.11. You must not submit work for assessment that you have already submitted (partially or in full), either for your current course or foranother qualification of this university, with the exception of resits, where for the coursework, you maybe asked to rework and improvea previous attempt. This requirement will be specifically detailed in your assignment brief or specific course or module information.Where earlier work by you is citable, i.e. it has already been published/submitted, you must reference it clearly. Identical pieces ofwork submitted concurrently may also be considered to be self-plagiarism.
