Previous editions of this best seller have helped more than 100,000 students and professionals write effective research proposals for dissertations and grants. Covering all aspects of the proposal process, from the most basic questions about form and style to the complex task of seeking funding, the Fifth Edition of Proposals That Work has been completely updated and revised to offer clear advice supported by useful examples. New to the Fifth Edition: Discusses the effects of new technologies: Locke, Spirduso, and Silverman address the effects of new technologies on the proposal process and also include related URLs where appropriate. Improves utility, relevance, and ease of use: Based on feedback from readers, this edition contains examples and advice that better meet the needs of the book's readership. Contains valuable advice and information on funding: The authors provide essential information on identifying and obtaining student funding for theses and dissertations. They also include a full chapter for scholars and professionals on applying for research grant funding. Offers a new section devoted to alternative dissertation formats: This addition more closely links the proposal with the subsequent dissertation and, in turn, with the production and publication of research reports. Provides practical tips on Microsoft PowerPoint: The authors give advice on how this program can serve as a powerful element of one's proposal rather than an enticing distraction. Incorporates numerous updates throughout: These include greater coverage of focus group research, new coverage of mixed methods designs, two new sample proposals, and much more.
