These are Research Proposals for Global Climate Change , Spring 2002. Please feel free to browse...
You can Input Your Research Proposal , and then review feedback on this page.
Peer Review is a fundamental component of doing science.To help make your
projects more scientifically sound, you are being called upon
to put forward your ideas, proposals, lab packets and final report
as well as provide feedback to your peers.
Remember: Look at theGlobal Climate Change Syllabus for details on the specifics to be included in your proposal.
Make sure it is complete! Use the outline below as a guide! I expect your proposal to be no shorter than 5 pages in length, plus references.
I'm sooooo Confused!
If you are still somewhat confused (and who wouldn't be!), pretend that I am the all-knowing Global Climate Change Funding God. There will be 100 proposals submitted, but, I am only
going to fund the most relevant ten proposals out of the entire batch! Convince my funding review board that your proposals are worthy of funding. Only the very finest efforts will
receive the cash necessary to investigate Global climate Change. So,....now is the time to strut your stuff!
IMPT: An Executive Summary/Abstract of Your Proposal (half page) should be placed before your introductory paragraph in the Introduction
- Purpose/Problem. What is/are your specific hypothesis(es)?
- What do you plan to accomplish?
- Relevance, if any. How does your research connect with other aspects of our Climate Change Course?
2. Relevance of your research question
--Literature Review--What have others done? Place your work in the context of the literature.
This section should be quite extensive! This BACKGROUND SYNTHESIS will serve as the foundation for your work! All strong proposals provide a SOLID BACKGROUND of knowledge that dovetails and supports your research effort.
--a minimum of 12 Library/Journal references. Be sure to include a brief explanation as to why you selected each source.
--a minimum of 5 website references that are pertinent to your study. Make sure the URLs are "Hot" links in your proposal posting (see instructions below). Also, be sure to include a brief explanation as to
why you selected these specific websites.
- How does your research relate to a larger question?
3. Materials and Methods
All research projects
must include the analysis and interpetation of data. You may use your own data, or, you may use data generated by others. While this may seem awkward at first because
you may not be generating the data yourself, the data can easily be compiled from the work of others.
What, you might ask!!! Isn't that plagerism? This practice is very common in science when looking at
research questions from a different perspective. All one needs to do is credit the original source (s) of
the data and take it from there! Use whatever data you find to address your own research question(s).
- What is your research design? Is it statistically sound?
- Describe important materials and how they will be used.
- Describe other methods.
- Have you included a Data Sheet?
- Include a specific time-line of research execution
4. Results (To be included in your final report)
- Tables (numerical data) and figures (graphs, drawings, etc.) when
5. Discussion & Conclusions(In your final report)
- Interpret your results, explaining why you got the results you
- Think beyond the project. What additional questions do you have?
- What suggestions do you have for further investigation?
