Research Project

A research project will represent substantial scholarly effort, and will reveal your scholastic, intellectual and personal capabilities.

A successful project will usually contain the following elements:

  • A clear statement introducing your topic and providing a brief guide to the organization of your project.
  • Review of related work which places your issue in context and provides criteria for judging the originality of your project.
  • Review of your techniques and any specialized terminology, making your project more accessible to other readers and clarifying your understanding of the material.
  • Thorough presentation of your research should be described completely, clearly identifying original results by stressing differences with previous related work.
  • Discussion of results and a critique of the impact on your field.
  • Summary of what was original and significant in your project, and suggestions for further research.
