Developing research plan

  1. 1. Developing Research Plan Presented By: Anvita Jadhav M. Pharm (IP)
  2. 2. Research Plan Before conducting any research, researcher should develop a research plan. The research plan should include the overall purpose of the research and how the outputs will be used and communicated
  3. 3. Rationale for developing research plan 1. • It helps researcher to organize his ideas in a form whereby it will be possible for him to look for flaws and inadequacies, if any. 2. • It provides an inventory of what must be done and which materials have to be collected as a preliminary step. 3. • It is a document that can be given to others for comment.
  4. 4. Contents of research plan • Research objective should be clearly stated in a line or two which tells exactly what it is that the researcher expects to do. Research Objective • The problem to be studied by researcher must be explicitly stated so that one may know what information is to be obtained for solving the problem. Defining Problem • Each major concept which researcher wants to measure should be defined in operational terms in context of the research project. Operation Term
  5. 5. • The plan should contain the method to be used in solving the problem. An overall description of the approach concerning method to be used are clearly mentioned in the research plan. Method • The plan must also state the details of the techniques to be adopted. Techniques • A clear mention of the population to be studied should be made. Population
  6. 6. • If the study happens to be sample based, the research plan should state the sampling plan. The method of identifying the sample should be such that generalization from the sample to the original population is feasible. Sample • The plan must also contain the methods to be used in processing the data. Statistical and other methods to be used must be indicated in the plan. Such methods should not be left until the data have been collected. Processing of Data • Results of pilot test, if any, should be reported. Time and cost budgets for the research project should also be prepared and laid down in the plan itself. Results
  7. 7. Sections of research planSpecificAims The purpose of this section is to clearly and concisely describe what the proposed research is intended to accomplish. SpecificAims Should include specific research objectives. Should be hypothesis-based. Objectives should be obtainable within the proposed timeframe. Study aims should fit together in an overall framework. Study should be well-focused rather than broad and diffuse.Specific Aims
  8. 8. Background&Significance • This states the research problem including the proposed rationale, current state of knowledge and potential contributions and significance of the research to the field. Background&Significance • Critically evaluate existing knowledge, including background literature and relevant data. • Specify existing gaps that the project is intended to fill. • Highlight potential policy or practice impacts. • Highlight why research findings are important beyond the confines of the specific research projectBackground & Significance
  9. 9. Preliminary Studies & Progress Reports The preliminary results section describes prior work by the investigators relevant to the proposed project. The progress report should include a summary of the previous application's specific aims and importance of the findings. Preliminary Studies & Progress Reports Discuss how previous work leads to the current proposal. Emphasize how the previous work demonstrates feasibility of proposed methods. Accuracy and overall presentation are important in figures, tables and graphs.
  10. 10. Research Design & Methods This section is to describe how the research will be carried out. This Include details related to specific methodology; explain why the proposed methods are the best to accomplish study goals. Describe any novel concepts, approaches, tools or techniques. Include details of how data will be collected and results analyzed. Consider required statistical techniques. Include proposed work plan and timeline.
  11. 11. Strategies A plan should cover a period of time Plan of action should be flexible Bottom to top levels of hierarchy should be involved in the planning process.
  12. 12. The research plan should include the overall purpose of the research and how the outputs will be used and communicated Contents of research plan are objective, method, techniques, results etc. Sections of research plan are specific aim, singficanace, preliminary studies, research design etc. For performing any experimental work development of research work has much more importance.
