Introduction to Proposal Style Technical reports are used to  communicate the results of: research,  field work,  proposals and other activities. Often, a report is the  only concrete evidence  of your work. The quality of the project may be  judged directly by the quality of  the writing.  Most technical reports contain the  same major sections , although the  names of the sections vary widely, and sometimes it is appropriate to  omit sections or add others. Always check for  specific requirements  and guidelines before  beginning to write your research report.
