Summary This step-by-step guide begins by identifying and defining the basics of a dissertation proposal. With careful consideration, they explore proposal functions and parts, show how to build your study's chain of reasoning, and carefully review alternate study designs. Chapters are devoted to qualitative studies (sectioned into case studies, philosophical, and historical investigations); quantitative studies (sectioned into experimental, causal modeling, and meta-analysis studies), and mixed-method studies (sectioned into: sample survey, evaluation, development, and demonstration and action projects). Three extensively annotated proposals of former students provide examples of the guidance offered and illustrate common types of studies
