Research Proposal Memo

I need you to write three things. (1- Background, 2-The Proposed Tasks section, 3- schedule chart, 4- references in ACS style). to do them you'll need to find at least 5 sources. the topic of my research project is "whether or not and why to develop more environmentally “safe” in cities public transportation like electric-powered passenger rail systems or buses". And I'll be talking about two chinese cities (Shouguang and Zhengzhou). everything is explained down below about what to do in each section. the whole assignments is 2 pages. Background Your Background section needs to provide more specific and authoritative (or official) information about, for example, (1) how bad the pollution and traffic problems are, (2) how much the traffic congestion and pollution problems have grown during the past twenty-five years, (3) how much the population has increased, (4) and the outlook about how much worse the conditions are going to become in the next ten years or so if nothing is done about the problem. You must cite sources of good information. The Proposed Tasks section The Proposed Tasks section needs to be re-created as a set of steps or phases you are going to complete. The Lecture Document explains exactly what to do, so use that for guidance. And here, too, you must cite sources to show me that you have in fact located some relevant, useful, published articles about the ways that electric-powered public transportation can both (1) serve the needs of the populations of these cities, so that the people can rely on the new public transportation enough to reduce how much they drive personal vehicles, and (2) reduce the amount of pollution (China burns coal to generate most of the electricity that the cities use, so powering all of those public transportation vehicles means the cities/regions need to burn even more coal, UNLESS the cities/regions are developing more renewables or using more nuclear energy—so you probably need to address this eventuality). schedule chart THEN, you need to produce a Schedule section where you introduce a schedule chart (in the form of a Gantt chart) to show the plan for your research and writing work between now and May 10. Make sure that you refer to the sources appropriately within the text of the Research Proposal Memo AND on the list of References at the end of it. References of sources in ACS American chemical style • A Purpose statement that tells me why you are writing and what the memo is about. • An explicit and well-developed Problem Statement that briefly describes the problem and briefly identifies how your work sensibly approaches solutions to the problem (the research question). The textbook example calls this part Summary. Use Problem Statement instead. Yours will be shorter, as the textbook example provides a lot of context information yours does not have. • Background of the problem and context to convince me that the audience of the Recommendation Report (Project A) faces a challenging and important problem, and that your approach makes sense in the context of recent efforts to solve the problem. Use sources to support your ideas. Include a brief analysis of your readers and the kinds of argumentation you are sure will persuade them. The textbook example calls this part Introduction. Use Background instead. • Your Research Plan for learning more about and analyzing the problem and potential solutions. Convince me you know what you need and where to find it. Describe some of the sources briefly. The textbook example calls this part Proposed Tasks. Use the heading Proposed Tasks. • A Schedule. Convince me that you know what activities your research and analyses will require and that you can get them done on time. • Your Qualifications. Convince me that you are qualified and have the abilities needed to fulfill the promises on your schedule (conduct the research, analyze the possible solutions to the problem). The textbook example calls this part Experience. Use Qualifications instead. • A Conclusion that requests permission to proceed, followed by the References page. The textbook example has no conclusion section—add a Conclusion that politely requests approval to proceed.
