A research proposal is intended to convince others that you have a worthwhile research project and that you have the competence and the work-plan to complete it. The research proposal must address the following questions regardless of your research area and the methodology you choose: What you plan to accomplish? Why do you want to do it?  How are you going to do it?


Question: How can universities produce revolutionary PhD and Post Doc thesis and dissertation on Chemistry? What are your recommendations to improve the academic standards?

Answer: Revolutionary Ph.D. and Post Doc thesis fully based on theoretical innovative study. Innovation come when we think out site the text book and conventional methods. First of all, university need to be started project work in their senior UG and PG level courses (mandatory) on innovation regarding different field of chemical education to insert interest in students who will be scholar in future. Students will select their own topic for their project. There will no bindings from the university end on the selection of the innovative topics and titles. University or academic institute will conduct regularly innovative educational seminar (3-4 times per year). During regular classes educators must use useful mnemonics which will inspire learners in future to bring innovation in their own subject and helpful to complete their Ph.D. and Post Doc thesis.     


Question: What are your views on applications of Luminescent properties?


Luminescence is spontaneous emission of light by a substance not resulting from heat; or cold light.

Question: What are your recommendations to write a world class research article in Chemistry? What essential components and factors must be there? 

Answer: Essential components and factors to write a world class research article in Chemistry:

Getting ready with data • First draft • Structure of a scientific paper • Selecting a journal from the above journal list • Submission • Revision and galley proof

Structure of a scientific paper:

Title, Abstract, TOC Graphics, Introduction, Experimental Section (Some papers require this section), Results and Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgments, References, and Supporting Information as per given MS templates in the respective journal.

Title: Compose a title that is simple, attractive and accurately reflects the investigation.

Abstract: First couple of sentences should focus on what the study is about. Include major findings in a style that a general readership can read and understand (i.e., avoid detailed experimental procedures and data.) Keep it short and effective.

TOC Graphics: A scheme or figure to convey the theme of paper.

Introduction: Start the section with a general background of the topic. Add 3-4 paragraphs that discuss previous work (updated literature survey). Point out issues that are being addressed in the present research study.

Experimental Section: Divide this section into Materials & Methods, Characterization, Measurements and Data analysis

Results and Discussion: These two sections can be combined or separate depending on your field of research. Describe the results in detail and include a healthy, detailed discussion. The order of figures should follow the discussion themes and not the sequence they were conducted. Discuss how your data compare or contrast with previous results. Include schemes, photographs to enhance the scope of discussion.

Conclusions: Include major findings followed by brief discussion on future perspectives and/or application of present work to other disciplines. Here, do not rewrite the abstract. Statements with “Investigated” or “Studied” are not conclusions.

Acknowledgments: Remember to thank the funding agency and Colleagues/scientists/technicians who might have provided assistance to carry out the research work.

References: The styles vary for different journals (Use ENDNOTE, RefWorks). Some journals require complete titles of the cited references. Please check for the accuracy of all citations. Please include updated references (Minimum last 5 yrs).

Supporting Information: Include methods, analysis, blank experiments, additional data.


Question: What are your recommendations to write a world class case report in Chemistry? What essential components and factors must be there? 

Answer: Before start writing case report you must remember

Why do we write research reports? And how do I do that?

Basic format that scientists have designed to write a case report for scientific research:

Introduction, Methods and Materials, Results, Discussion

This format, sometimes called “IMRAD,” may take slightly different shapes depending on the discipline or audience; some ask you to include an abstract or separate section for the hypothesis, or call the Discussion section “Conclusions,” or change the order of the sections (some professional and academic journals require the Methods section to appear last). Overall, however, the ‘IMRAD’ format was devised to represent scientific case report.

Introduction: It states your hypothesis and explains how you derived that hypothesis and how it connects to previous research; gives the purpose of the experiment/study. To write a strong introduction first of all we’ll consider the Introduction to contain four basic elements: the purpose, the scientific literature relevant to the subject, the hypothesis, and the reasons you believed your hypothesis viable.

Methods: It details how you tested your hypothesis. It clarifies why you performed your study in that

particular way.

Results: It provides raw (i.e. uninterrupted) data collected. It expresses the data in table form, as an easy to read figure, or as percentages/ratios.

Discussion: It considers whether the data you obtained support the hypothesis. It explores the implications of your finding and judges the potential limitations of your experimental design.
