How to Write a Brief Research Statement
Advice from Prof. Tina Fetner at Scatterplot:
My proposed study is about this. Here is why this problem is important. Here is what we know about this problem. These studies leave THIS IMPORTANT THING that needs to be found out. Here is what I will do to find that out. I will do the study this way. It will produce these results. This is the value of doing the work. This is why I am qualified to do it, and whom I’ll work with. Remember, this is the contribution my study will make.
This is GREAT advice. Write it down, kids.
