What is Research Proposal?

A research proposal is a summary of your proposed research, generally in the sciences or academia. It outlines the area of study, what prior research has been done on the topic, the results of the study and so on. Usually, research proposals are 2,000–3,500 words (4-7 pages) long. They include:

  • Title
  • Abstract
  • Research context
  • Research questions
  • Research methods
  • Significance of research
  • Bibliography

Research Proposals can be:

  • Solicited - they respond to a request with specified requirements.
  • Unsolicited - they are written without prior request.
