THE COMMON PART OF RESEARCH PROPOSAL

I. Introduction
- Background (This sets out why you chose your topic - what prompted your interest in the topic)
- Problems (the issue that exists in the literature, theory, or practice that leads to a need for the study)
- Scope and limitation (A delimitation addresses how a study will be narrowed in scope, that is, how it is bounded. This is the place to explain the things that you are not doing and why you have chosen not to do them—the literature you will not review (and why not), the population you are not studying (and why not), the methodological procedures you will not use (and why you will not use them).)
- Significance (why the topic is important for the discipline or course)

II. Literature review
The review of the literature provides the background and context for the research problem. It should establish the need for the research and indicate that the writer is knowledgeable about the area

III. Research Method

- Design (This section outlines how you are going to get your data. By reading widely you will be familiar with methodologies followed by previous researchers and have explored possible research methods)
- data collection (Outline the general plan for collecting the data. This may include survey administration procedures, interview or observation procedures. Include an explicit statement covering the field controls to be employed.)
- subject
- data analysis (This section suggests what you are going to do with the data)

IV. Bibliography
