The proposal is usually expected to contain approximately 3,000 words.

Also at this preliminary stage, the research goal is revealed to an academic panel.   This group is responsible for approving such projects and the writer’s research subjects in order that those subjects might understand the methodology and can validly give their consent to participating in the project.

The writer must further demonstrate familiarity with the publications and extant research on the topic, with a strategy of incorporating that research into the body of the final manuscript, and demonstrate how it will aid in proving the main thesis.  At this time also, a time frame must be proposed and agreed upon, within which the project must be completed and the researcher must demonstrate the ability to finish the project on time.
