I need a research proposal for a MA thesis. The idea of the proposal list to summarize the thesis project and highlight it's relevance and importance.
A research proposal commonly includes:
Rationale for the research project, including: a description of the phenomenon of interest, and the context(s) and situation in which you think the research will take place; an explanation of why the topic is of interest to the author; and an outline of the reasons why the topic should be of interest to research and/ or practice (the 'so what?' question); a statement of how the research fits the current research trends and literature
Issues and initial research question. Within the phenomenon of interest: what issue(s) do you intend to investigate? (This may be quite imprecise at the application stage); what might be some of the key literatures that might inform the issues (again, indicative at the application stage); and, as precisely as you can, what is the question you are trying to answer?
Intended methodology: How do you think you might go about answering the question? Do you have a preference for using quantitative methods such as survey based research, or for qualitative methods such as interviews and observation? Here the study you wrote on the data collection can be used.
Expected outcomes: how do you think the research might add to existing knowledge; what might it enable organizations or interested parties to do differently?
Preliminary thesis outline (as I send in the instructions)
The sources are especially necessary for CBDC and the description of the sense making process (e.g. reasoning for implementation and process description should be referenced quite well).
The articles can be used as an example, please use many sources as required, it can be more than 30.
The instructions are included in the files attached.
