This section describes research proposals. Proposals are a necessary step in a research project: they allow you to refine your objectives and explain how you plan to investigate them. Proposals include both theoretical information relevant to the topic (the literature review) and practical details (timeline and budget, for example).
Research proposals can be assigned as an assignment, they can lead to a thesis or dissertation, or they can be necessary for funding and grant applications.
This video lecture covers the most important aspects of a research proposal.
