As a final student, I’m bussing with an activity called research. Before working at the laboratory, I’ve to make a proposal research. It contains three parts, i.e. introduction, literature review and formulation of hypothesis and research method.
This part contains a background, formulation of problem, objective and benefit that arrange comprehensively. Introduction is described scientifically and directed chronologically to formulation of problem. When write down this part, I need to pay attention to all of citation that I used. All of citation that’s used in this part is all of citation that appear in the next part, literature review. And also, it depicts all of citation in the research. At this part, I’ve to input some previous research related to my research. Commonly, the researches have some lack. So that I want to improve using some innovation on it. Objective explains scientifically about goals through the research.
Literature review and formulation of hypothesis
Literature review is a deep description about the background. The previous research is written down again but I’ve to make opinion about it. Am I agree or disagree? And also give some explanation on it. The important point is all of the research connecting with my research. Another point that need attention is all of information has to selected. So that only necessary information that contain in literature review. Hypothesis is a tentative explanation of phenomenon. Formulation of hypothesis is related to research objective. Some opinion says that hypothesis is a tentative answer of objective. Because it’s tentative, so it’s needing to prove. Proving the hypothesis is done by write down a plan of research, what the conducted stage of research is.
This part is completely explanation of experiment stages. It comprises materials and instruments that’s used in research and also realisation procedure. All of materials is grouped based on function and grafted the quality and producer. Grafting producer is also done to all of instruments. Work procedure is written down completely, including quantities and units. Remember that it’s written using passive voice.
That’s the rule of writing a proposal research in my college. To write the full version of research, I just add the result and conclusion. Well, I think this rule commonly can applied to writing all kind of research. But, sometime there is another specific rule that need to pay attention to.
