Research Proposal Guide | Learn how to write a research proposal
The art of referring to the words and ideas of other writers involves many rules and requires subtle uses of vocabulary (eg, words of attribution and evaluation) and grammar (eg, verb tense - past and present). A chapter (13) from Anderson and Poole (2001) is helpful for reasonably detailed rules about the conventions/mechanics of referencing, and includes information about referencing electronic sources. The full reference is: Anderson, J. & Poole, M. (2001). Assignment and thesis writing 4th Edn. Brisbane: John Wiley & Sons The two main referencing systems used in the Faculty of Education are the American Psychologists Association (APA) conventions and the system known as the Harvard conventions.

A thesis consists of an argument or a series of arguments combined with the description and discussion of research you have undertaken. In the case of a PhD, and to a lesser extent, a Masters (research) thesis, the research is expected to "make a significant contribution to the chosen field" (Phillips and Pugh, 1994, p. 23). This does not mean to revolutionise the field (though some PhDs may). You are expected to review critically the available publications in the field and attempt to add an element of original research to it. This may simply mean that you adapt someone else's research plan for the situation you want to investigate; in this way you extend the knowledge about an area.

Writing a research proposal Purpose of a proposal The purpose of the proposal is to help you (as student) to focus and define your research plans. These plans are not binding, in that they may well change substantially as you progress in the research.

If you have any thoughts on the content, or even the notion of making this available to students, please share them with me. Introduction Guidelines on writing a research proposal
A typical research proposal will be somewhere between one and two thousand words. While we do not insist on a definite format, we encourage students to keep the following in mind: The proposal should begin by explaining the subject area in which the research is to be located, and providing an indication of the key theoretical, policy or empirical debates it plans to address.The proposal should then present a brief review of the literature you plan to contribute to in conducting your own research. You need to demonstrate a familiarity with the relevant academic literature and theories relating to your research proposal, and an awareness of the major lines of argument that have been developed in your chosen research field.

Teaching Web Search Skills: Companion Web Page
Yet more advanced search features are being killed off by Google. With the move of the search tools from the left margin to the top, and requiring an extra click to get to most of them, Google has been removing those that get little use. We used to have a full translated search function at Google, but the “Translated Foreign Pages” search tool option gave some of that functionality until recently. As reported at Search Engine Land, Google has not removed that drop down menu choice. Last month, the “similar pages” function had been removed for a similar reason, lack of use.

Home - Evaluating Information Found on the Internet - Library Guides at Johns Hopkins University The World Wide Web offers information and data from all over the world. Because so much information is available, and because that information can appear to be fairly “anonymous”, it is necessary to develop skills to evaluate what you find. When you use a research or academic library, the books, journals and other resources have already been evaluated by scholars, publishers and librarians.
