M Com 320 Research Report Proposal Researching and writing your research report paper are like eating an elephant—difficult to do in  one sitting, but manageable if you divide the task into chunks and work on it a little at a time.  You’re munching on the first bite of your research elephant by selecting a topic and developing a  research question that is researchable in the BYU libraries, online or through primary research. You  have (or will real soon) attend a library mini-course to learn more about the resources available to  you.  The next step is to write a formal proposal outlining in detail what you will research and write  about, justifying the worth of your project, explaining how you will carry it out, and identifying the  resources you will use to accomplish the task. This is more than declaring your topic. You will find  that this “bite” is the biggest one yet. But once you take it, writing the paper itself will not be so  daunting. Here are the dimensions of your rhetorical situation. Purpose of the Proposal To persuade me that (1) you have selected and narrowed a topic that is worthy of investigation, (2)  that you have a plan for carrying out the research and organizing the findings in a paper, and (3)  that the library, online, or primary resources are available to help you accomplish your paper.
