This book describes meaning, stages and methods of writing a successful research project proposal and a thesis from the first draft proposal to the final version of the thesis. As a manual, this book follows a simple approach that beginners can use without complications and many terminologies and technical terms have been translated into Arabic. The book explains the structure of a thesis and proposal including title, abstract, introduction, literature review, materials and methods, results, discussion, biography and appendix (if there is any). These parts of the thesis are often mixed up without emphasizing the purpose of each part and often without limiting oneself to the specific chapter.

A research proposal is a plan that a candidate submits to gain approval for post-graduate research. Although it is a typical requirement for any research in higher education, it has failed to receive the attention it deserves from the academic community as a procedure of systematic teaching and learning. This book provides a support framework with step-by-step guidance about what constitutes a good research proposal and what can be done to maximize one’s chances of writing a successful application. It also presents advice and practical activities to enhance skill development, and shows how success is within reach if we are willing to face our flaws and grasp how to use the available information productively and persuasively.
