Proposal Preparation


Statement of your theory
This chapter introduces your Dissertation to the reader. It includes a statement of the problem, an overview and significance of the study [its purpose, and application(s)] and finally, how and why it is important. In this chapter, the scope of the study is stated while a detailed description of what you wish to prove or demonstrate interests the reader even if he doesn’t agree with you.


Literature Review
In this chapter, you strengthen your demonstration with the help of research and a review of related literature (i.e., past research and writings and their impact on the study). Research is done on the writings of other authors who have explored the same subject. All perspectives are presented, including the positive and negative aspects.


The research design is explained in this chapter along with surveys, statistical procedures, tests, comparisons, questionnaires and any special tools or interviewing techniques used. For historical or case study methodologies, a description of current events (e.g., current work-related projects) is provided.

Summary of Proposal:
