Writing a Project Plan - Undergraduate Research at Northeastern University

You are probably familiar with the essential journalistic questions, “Who? What? When? Where? Why? How?” While different types of research projects and creative endeavors may require more or less formal or extensive written plans, in general, a strong research proposal will answer those same questions with regard to the project you propose. Discussions with your mentor will help you refine your ideas, and you should ask your mentor for feedback on drafts of any written proposals before you submit them. When presenting a plan for a project, you should be able to: Formulate a research question or a description of what you intend to create, invent or discover, and provide background information for your project, contextualizing it in terms of the broader work in the field.

The basics of writing a statement of the problem for your research proposal

Research is a systematic investigative process employed to increase or revise current knowledge by discovering new facts. It can be divided into two general categories: (1) Basic research, which is inquiry aimed at increasing scientific knowledge, and (2) Applied research, which is effort aimed at using basic research for solving problems or developing new processes, products, or techniques. The first and most important step in any research is to identify and delineate the research problem: that is, what the researcher wants to solve and what questions he/she wishes to answer.

How to Write a Work Plan

1 Identify the purpose for your work plan. Work plans are written for various reasons. Determine the purpose up front so you can prepare properly. Keep in mind that most work plans are for a certain period of time (i. e. , 6 months or 1 year). In the workplace, work plans help your supervisor know what projects you will be working on over the next several months. These often come right after an annual performance review or as teams undertake large projects. Work plans can also be the result of strategic planning sessions your organization holds at the beginning of a new calendar or fiscal year.
