Research Methods

Writing Your Proposal Please refer to the tips below before you start drafting your proposal and ensure that the proposal is grounded within the prescribed research context, being pet adoption in Singapore. In addition, while the traditional scientific writing style is generally in the third-person and in past tense (e.g., interviews were conducted by the researcher), a proposal has yet to occur, and should be written in the third-person, future tense (e.g., interviews will be conducted by the researcher).1.Introduction (300 words)Provide the background as an engaging lead into your proposed study. Define the research problem and explain your rationale for your proposed focus. Provide operational definitions for key concepts. The aim of the Introduction section is to give the reader an overview of your proposed study. Aim to engage the reader. Tell the reader why it is important to study the phenomenon of pet adoption, and how your proposed study would add value to the extant literature. Please remember to define key concepts. Although this section would be the first in your written proposal, it often makes sense to finalise it only after you have drafted all the other sections.2.Literature Review Present a review of scholarly literature relevant to your proposed study. The aim of this section is to provide the reader with your critique — strengths and shortfalls — of past research on this topic, and how that led you to develop your hypotheses/research questions/research objectives. Summarise the most relevant past research and tell readers how your review guided the development of your hypotheses/research questions/research objectives. For example, you can demonstrate how the research designs used by these studies might have influenced their findings. Your literature review should convince the reader that your proposed study will make a valuable contribution to existing knowledge about pet adoption in Singapore.3.Purpose and Hypotheses/Research Questions/Research ObjectivesYour purpose statement and subsequent hypotheses/research questions/research objectives must be aligned with the research design that you have selected.4.Methodology and Methods (700 words)Compare and contrast the strengths and weaknesses of various research design options to decide which would best achieve your study’s purpose. Propose an appropriate research design that can address the purpose and subsequent hypotheses/research questions/research objectives. Apply your knowledge of research methods to develop the sampling, data collection and analysis strategies. Examine your methodology and methods for potential issues and highlight them as anticipated limitations.The aim of the Methodology and Methods section is to allow the reader to understand how you intend to conduct your study based on the proposed research design. You should be able to demonstrate your knowledge of the various elements of your chosen design and its approach. Methodology and Methods should cover the proposed study’s design, philosophical assumptions, sample (target population, sampling frame, sample characteristics and size, sampling methods), data collection methods (including any instruments), data analysis methods, research ethcs, research rigour
