Elements of a research proposal and report
 All research reports use roughly the same format. It doesn't matter whether you've done a customer satisfaction survey, an employee opinion survey, a health care survey, or a marketing research survey. Allhave the same basic structure and format. The rationale is that readers of research reports (i.e., decisionmakers, funders, etc.) will know exactly where to find the information they are looking for, regardless of theindividual report.Once you've learned the basic rules for research proposal and report writing, you can apply them to anyresearch discipline. The same rules apply to writing a proposal, a thesis, a dissertation, or any businessresearch report.

eneral considerations
 
Research papers usually have five chapters with well-established sections in each chapter. Readers of thepaper will be looking for these chapters and sections so you should not deviate from the standard formatunless you are specifically requested to do so by the research sponsor.
M
ost research studies begin with a written proposal
. Again, nearly all proposals follow the same format.In fact, the proposal is identical to the first three chapters of the final paper except that it's writtten in futuretense. In the proposal, you might say something like "
the researchers will secure the sample from ...
", whilein the final paper, it would be changed to "
the researchers secured the sample from ...
". Once again, with theexception of tense, the proposal becomes the first three chapters of the final research paper.The most commonly used style for writing research reports is called "APA" and the rules are described in the
Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association
. Any library or bookstore will have it readilyavailable. The style guide contains hundreds of rules for grammar, layout, and syntax. This paper will cover the most important ones.
Av
oid the use of first person pronouns. Refer to yourself or the research team in third person.Instead of saying "
I will ...
" or "
We will ...
", say something like "
The researcher will ...
" or "
Theresearch team will ...
".
 A suggestion: Never present a draft (rough) copy of your proposal, thesis, dissertation, or researchpaper...even if asked. A paper that looks like a draft, will interpreted as such, and you can expect extensiveand liberal modifications. Take the time to put your paper in perfect APA format before showing it to anyoneelse. The payoff will be great since it will then be perceived as a final paper, and there will be far fewer changes.
