  • FUNDAMENTAL RESEARCH

    Fundamental research is basic research performed for

    a specific period and it will not produce benefit in the

    short term.

    Intended to encourage new ideas/concept /theory

    which are innovative and latest.

    Leading to the advancement of knowledge in the

    various research areas.

    Generally the research will focus on:

    accumulation of theories;

    fundamental structures; and

    fundamental processes with the goal of

    understanding them FRGS B DEC 2012 SSA, RMI 6

  • RESEARCH PROPOSAL

    * Experimental design & methodology

    * Project activities (Plan of action) * Key milestone

    * Duration of project

    * Project schedule

    * Project costs * Manpower

    * Travelling, Materials, Expenses & Equipment

    * Ethical considerations (if relevant)

    FRGS B DEC 2012 SSA, RMI

    Committed to Produce New Theory/Technique/

    Model

    Committed to Train PG

    Committed to Publish in indexed JOURNALS

    Conclusive Research

  • PROJECT TITLE * Must reflect the work that you would

    like to do * Specific Focus and Unique (Not too general)

    * Gives the impression as to the level of work/ intensiveness of work worthy of the type of grant proposed.

    * Signify the status of research that will be performed * original or value added

    * lab based, fundamental

    * Signify the area of expertise that you would like to develop for the country * If you are involved at the National Level

    FRGS B DEC 2012 SSA, RMI

    Test 1: Google

    Test 2 : Google Scholar

    Test 3 : ISI Search

    Peer Review

  • DETAILS OF RESEARCHERS & OTHERS

    Details of Researcher To be provided as requested

    Research Area Select appropriate areas as per list

    Location of Research If possible, get other institutions to be involved.

    Ex: Theoretical study in UiTM but some fabrication and measurement are made in other institutions

    Duration of Research max no of years

    FRGS B DEC 2012 SSA, RMI 9

  • OTHER RESEARCHER (RECOMMENDED)

    For new researchers, include

    experienced researchers and vice versa.

    Minimum two researchers

    Suggest three (3) researchers in team,

    maximum of five (5).

    A balanced team would be desirable as it

    would reflect the teams track record.

    Dont forget to include CV.

    Junior Head/Senior Collaborator

    If no PhD (Find One)

    FRGS B DEC 2012 SSA, RMI 10

  • PI TRACK RECORD

    Research projects that have been completed or

    ongoing by project leader for the last 3 years.

    Please provide title of research, grants name,

    position, duration, year commence and year

    ending.

    Please provide information on academic

    publications that has been published by the

    project leader for the last five (5) years.

    (Example: Journals, Books, Chapters in books,

    etc)

    FRGS B DEC 2012 SSA, RMI 11

  • EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    Executive Summary * Abstract of Work Proposed, max 300 words

    * Include the background of research, problem statement, objectives, research methodology, output/outcomes/implication, and significance of output from the research project

    * Concise and compact

    * No citation

    * Very important as evaluators tend to only read this when time is limited. May not even read further if summary is poorly written

    FRGS B DEC 2012 SSA, RMI 12

  • RESEARCH BACKGROUND (MAJOR

    COMPONENTS)

    * Introduction * Literature Review Summary including work of others * What is the current situation * What is wrong with the current situation.

    * Problem Statement/Research Questions * Problems to solve * Questions to answer

    * Hypothesis to Solutions * Solutions to problems * Answers to Research Questions

    * Significance and Uniqueness in work * Advantage, Simplifications, Impact

    FRGS B DEC 2012 SSA, RMI 13

  • DETAILED PROPOSAL: RES. BACKGROUND

    Includes Problem Statement, Hypothesis/Research

    Questions, Literature Reviews, Related References

    and Relevance to Goverment Policy, if any.

    impact-oriented/value added

    Targets to produce good research. Short but

    thorough enough. Includes:

    Has a similar studies been done before & their findings.

    Frequency of occurrence/prevalence in the previous study.

    What is wrong with the current situation. State your rationale

    for conducting the current project. Uniqueness

    Quote the relevant & some latest references

    FRGS B DEC 2012 SSA, RMI 14

  • OBJECTIVE

    Objectives

    Limit to 3 objectives

    To answer why & how of fundamental issue/theory

    Must be within the priority areas of grant provider.

    When writing, use result-oriented wordings i.e.:

    To investigate.......................

    To determine...............

    To assess .......................

    FRGS B DEC 2012 SSA, RMI 15

  • March 2010 (Mustafar) Research Management Institute UiTM

    Use this for Research/Knowledge Creation

  • Objective vs Problem St

    FRGS B DEC 2012 SSA, RMI

    Observe the link of Problem Statement & Hypothesis VS Objectives

    17

  • RESEARCH METHODOLOGY * Describe how you plan to carry it out * Include a flow chart * Include a Gantt Chart * Milestone for every 6 months

    * Include all relevant details such as * What do you plan to do, how?, Study area: where

    you plan to study/collect samples from

    * Equipment used * Where you plan to do * Sample size / No of tests to be done * Is it statistically significant ? * Sample size is important since it has a bearing on

    project costs.

    *Do you need approval from government ministries to do the work. If yes, attach the approval letter.
