Topic: Develop and write a research proposal.
The research proposal should be related to the health field.
NB; 1) Do not use online (google) books that only have citation, no open access and are not peer reviewed, as it’s hard for me to locate/open them. I need journal articles.
2) Do not use articles below 2010. Only use 2010-2016
3) This is an example from my lecturer of how to write a research proposal. Jirojwong, S., Johnson, M. & Welch, A. (2014). Research in methods in nursing & midwifery: Pathways to evidence-based practice (2nd ed.). South Melbourne: Oxford University Press.Chapter Three- Introducing the Research Process, pp. 34-64.
1)The topic “obesity in Australia” is broad. Probably a subtopic for instance childhood obesity etc 2)The INTRODUCTION should be short and precise to the topic. it should not contain any in-text/references. Yourone was 300+ words 3)The Research Problem and the Research Question. i need to form a research question. 4)Review the Research Literature Exploring the relevant research literature can help to: * Identify a research problem * Find out what is known and not known about a topic area * Determine the need to replicate a prior study in a different setting or with a different study population * Identify suitable designs and data collection methods for a study. SHE IS MORE CONCERNED OF WHAT THE LITERATURE SAYS ABOUT THE TOPIC eg A CASE STUDY 5)Select a Research Design & appropriate Methods -One distinction to make is whether to use a qualitative or quantitative design IS IT A QUALITATIVE OR QUANTITATIVE RESEARCH. 6)Ethical issues should be included in the proposal -consent -confidentiality -anonymity -privacy Steps in the Research Process -Define the problem -Review the research literature -Identify aims/objectives/research questions -Select a research design -Plan the procedure -Collect the data -Analyse the data and interpret the results
