Contents Notes
The function of the proposal -- Doing the right thing : "the habit of truth" -- Developing the thesis or dissertation proposal : some common problems -- Content of the proposal : important considerations -- Preparation of proposals for qualitative research : different assumptions -- Style and form in writing the proposal -- The oral presentation -- Money for research : how to ask for help -- Preparation of the grant proposal. Earlier editions of this book have provided two generations of students and professionals with useful advice on writing proposals for dissertations or grants. Written an easy-to-follow style, this book, has both practical suggestions for the would-be writer and several lengthy exemplars that show how effective proposal writing can be done.
