Producing a Research Proposal 1. Identify a problematic eg the sociology of knowledge production in universities 2.

Demonstrate that you are familiar with any canonical work relevant to your problematic eg Durkheim, Fleck, Feyerabend, Kuhn, Mannheim, Merton, Foucault, Latour, Bernstein 4. Demonstrate that you are familiar and can engage critically with recent research that is relevant to your problematic eg Knorr Cetina, Shapin, Turnbull 6 Producing a Research Proposal 5. Identify a plausible research setting Access, manageability

6. Identify possible data collection strategies eg participant observation, loosely structured interviews, survey 7.

Positivism, empiricism, realism Theorise in advance Sampling intended to generalise to a population Research designs and data collection instruments highly technical

Data analysis highly technical Qualitative Research Interpretivism Theory, research questions come later Results may generalise to a process, but not to a population Fieldwork often extended

Data analysis is difficult Tips Proposal should be explicitly relevant to institution/supervisors Proposal should be explicitly relevant to your academic background Critical engagement with cited work Keep the rationale brief Be prepared to negotiate 9 Programmes PhD Part-time or full-time Research training programme Final assessment only on thesis (80K words)
