Writing a research proposal can prove to be an arduous task if you are not fully prepared or committed to producing a unique research. The easy short cut to writing a research proposal nowadays is visiting essay mill sites or using search engines to find old thesis, dissertation or buy custom dissertations.

One way or the other, you end up having a research proposal. But have you sat down and considered the possibility of plagiarism or getting caught while rebranding other students research as your own?

That’s the more reason why the straight forward tips to writing a research proposal would be disclosed.


Tip 1: Start your research from your comfort zone


Many students try to impress themselves or the readers of their thesis, essays or research work with their writing skills or use of complex sentences. Instead writing a research proposal requires far more than that.

First, a research proposal needs to be written within your specialization or a field you are comfortable of exploring. If you are not a genius- just draw from your strength. Think of which courses you liked or had good grades in during the semesters of study. There you would find your strength, instead of trying to impress with topics that are complex than you can’t handle. The easiest solution for writing your research proposal remains writing on a topic you can handle and using the methodology you understand to conduct the research.


Tip 2: Extensive reading

The reason why many student’s thesis or dissertation appear not to be distinct or unique rest on not keeping abreast with latest development in their field of research. You could cite the best scholars in your field of investigation and still fail or have a poor grade. The ability to compare several scholarly works, their analytical perspective and research findings is crucial to writing a research proposal as well as writing a dissertation. From the analytical study of previous researches, you find a gap which you can explore or exploit. That presents you a wormhole of opportunities. If you are not conversant with different discourses and analysis- then you end up having nothing to research. Instead all you would be doing is repeating or adopting what has been disclosed previously without making any meaningful contribution.

Tip 3: Narrow down your topic

After your extensive reading exercise, it should be easier to pick a topic that is narrow. Leaving your topic broad or eclectic would only lead you to digressing from one point to another. It does you no good at all. In order to fix this dilemma, it would be easier if you concentrate on a micro-level of your topic. For instance, if you were writing about terrorism in West Africa or radical Islamist groups in Europe. Both topics are so broad. Instead of the broad topics you could focus on a unit of the discourse. For instance, radical Islamist in Europe. A perfect topic would be investigating the source of funding of Salafist group in Germany. This way you not only narrowed it down to a State but within the state you could pick point the hot zones of the Salafist and investigate easily.


Tip 4: Have a time plan or milestone indicator

I have a friend who wrote his thesis within a month. How that is possible I really don’t know. But we all have different strengths and weaknesses. His own strength was a photographic memory: brain that absorbs more information than any human being and a desire to continually read and read, study latest researches or article journal. As such he had all what he needed in his brain archives.

I am not saying a Bachelor thesis with a qualitative research perspective can’t be written within a month. After all some universities in Europe give their students in between 3-6 months to write their thesis or dissertation.

Most important element is to prepare beforehand, read literatures or journals relevant to your topic and save them for your bibliography. This aids your research proposal writing process. It is advised that your preparation starts a year or three months prior to writing the research proposal. Having a well laid down time plan or what would be achieved at what time is crucial to conducting your research as well as completing it.

Tip 5 : Ensure your research proposal meets the university standard

Always ask questions if you seem to be lost or don’t understand certain writing requirements. Many students get their research proposal rejected over and over again simply because they did not pay attention to the little details.
