Alvir, Howard P.
This provides the basic format to be followed for conducting a research project. The method of analyzing the procedure for making a successful research project is broken down into six components: (1) State the problem briefly and explain its importance and significance; (2) State the hypotheses to be tested and explain specific questions to be answered; (3) Summarize pertinent research in other related research by citing sources of special importance, discussing the proposed study as it relates to previous and ongoing research, specifying how the study will extend the body of knowledge, and pointing out distinctive or unique aspects of the proposed research; (4) Describe all important procedures in detail, listing steps to be followed and time lines for each step, and identifying all pertinent components involved in the research project; (5) Include data on personnel, facilities, duration, budget, support, related projects, and funding anticipations; and (6) Summarize by stating how this project will yield usable results in a reasonable period of time and if it can be used in a substantial number of similar activities. A list of avoidable research errors is included in this report. The appendixes give examples of federal criteria for federal research projects. (JD)
