The Research Proposal
Creative Work - Textual
Accounting, Auditing and Accountability Journal
Purpose: The purpose is to reflect on writing a PhD proposal. Design/methodology/approach: The paper is a poem based on the author's experience. Findings: This is meditation on how the topic, theory and method for a research project all need to be fine-tuned, so they are in balance. Research limitations/implications: The paper stimulates thought about what drives a research project, and that various adaptations are required, so the topic theory, and method are woven together in harmony. Originality/value: The paper provides an insight into the preparation of a research proposal, and highlights that it is not a linear process, driven only by the topic. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
