Research Methods

You should use this section of the proposal to describe the research method(s) that you are proposing to use.

In addition to describing the method(s) you will use, you should explain how the method(s) will produce data or other information that will allow you to test your hypothesis, and provide evidence for your findings.

Note that methods used vary significantly among disciplines.  

For further guidance, please refer to the appropriate discipline-specific area located on this page.

Your research method is the heart of your proposal - be sure to consult with your Research Advisor if you need assistance with this important section.
