A research proposal explains what you plan to study, questions you want to answer, a literature review of related research, what method(s) you will use to conduct your study (or collect data), and an explanation of why the research will be significant. Specific requirements and expectations of research proposals may vary according to professor, or discipline. If you have questions, consult your professor.
