How to Write a Synopsis for Your Research |Steps in the Ph.D. Process

What is a Synopsis? Why do you need a synopsis for your doctoral research? What is the importance of a synopsis? How do you write and format a synopsis for your Ph.D.?

A synopsis, simply put, is a detailed summary of your research work that you will be doing for your doctoral degree.A synopsis is different from an abstract. You will submit your synopsis at the start of your research work along with your thesis title.

In simple terms, your synopsis is a write up which contains what you will be researching, the significance of your research to the field and how you will go about conducting this research. This document will be submitted before you start your research work and acts as a summary of what you plan to do in your research. In contrast, an abstract is the summary of your whole research thesis and will be written after the research is done and will be included along with your thesis.

synopsis phd in management

The most important or significant use of a synopsis or why you should submit a synopsis is because this is the document that convinces the academic committee of your university as to why they should approve your research proposal. This is why the significance or contribution from your research to that particular field is included in the synopsis.

Writing a synopsis for your Ph.D. is an easy process once you have a clear idea about your research. The format of your synopsis will depend upon the guidelines provided by your university but we will provide you with a general outline on how to write a synopsis for a Ph.D.

The format for a synopsis will be as follows:

  • Title of your research thesis: The title of your research project should be clearly defined in your synopsis. This will act as a clear indication of what your research is going to be.
  • Introduction:Your introduction will contain a summary of the current level of knowledge in your field of research, the gaps in this knowledge and what your research will contribute to fill these gaps.
  • Literature Review: Literature reviews are brief summaries of works that have already been published in journals and other academic forums which are concerned with the field of your research. You need to critically appraise what others have done and what they have found out pertaining to your field of research. Through this you can highlight where their work can be expanded on through your research.
  • Aims and Objectives: This part of your synopsis is clear from its title. What is the aim of your research? What are you trying to find out? What are the objectives you are trying to achieve by conducting this research? You need to be very clear and concise while writing the aims and objectives of your research in the synopsis.
  • Research Methodology: This is a very important part of your synopsis. Research methodology can be defined as“the specific procedures or techniques used to identify, select, process, and analyse information about a topic”. In your synopsis you need to include the outline of your research process, i.e.: how you will be doing your research. In this section you need to include the tools and equipment you will be using, how you will collect your data, and the methods you will use to analyse this collected data. Your research methodology will provide an insight into whether your research is achievable.
  • References: You need to provide a list of all the material that you have referred to in the process of writing your synopsis. The format of how to list your references will be provided by your university.
  • Conclusion:In the conclusion of your research, you must once again briefly summarise your Ph.D. research that you will be undertaking and why your research is needed. You will also need to include the limitations of your research project in this section.

This is the basic format of how to write a Ph.D. synopsis in India. This may change from university to university so make sure you write it according to the guidelines your university has provided you with. On average, your synopsis will come to around 30 pages.

We hope that this post has provided you with a better understanding about what is a research synopsis, the importance of a research synopsis and how to write a synopsis for your Ph.D.

Eduflair will most certainly be with you as a guide in your journey to fulfil your dreams of a doctoral degree. We wish you luck on your research journey.

Elective Courses

Elective courses are typically chosen in consultation with the student’s academic advisor and/or the Ph.D. Director to support the student’s doctoral research, to strengthen fields of specialization. Many 700 level and some 600 level courses in the departments of Economics, Psychology, Social Psychology, Mathematics and Statistics, Geography, and some in other departments in the College of Business are approved electives.

Students who are engaged in research applications that are related to other fields may find it helpful to take graduate courses in another field. These can be counted toward fulfilling the elective requirements as long as they are at the graduate level (600 or 700 level) and are approved by the student’s advisory committee.  

1 st Year Summer Research Project

The Summer Research Project entails conducting supervised research in the summer between the first and second year of study.  This requirement is designed to help prepare students with the research skills needed in their careers.  Students will select a primary faculty advisor to supervise the project and a secondary advisor to assist on the project, both of whom must agree to supervise. The topic, content, and methods of the research paper will be negotiated between the student and the faculty advisors with the understanding that the student will likely continue work begun in a prior class.  Students can pursue both theoretical and empirical research projects.

The expectation is the student should develop a research manuscript that could be submitted to a journal or a conference presentation or poster session.  The manuscript should be between 3000-6000 words and should be essentially completed by the end of summer.  Students will provide an oral presentation of the research project to the faculty early in the fall semester and the paper should be completed and ready for submission by late fall semester. 

Students that need financial support to facilitate their research should submit a well-developed research proposal to the Graduate Director for funding consideration by a graduate faculty committee.  The proposal should outline the theory, hypotheses, research methods, budget and IRB approval if required.  Proposals should be submitted early in the summer for consideration and if approved funding will be available to facilitate data collection over the summer months.  Funding requests up to $1000 will be considered and partial funding may be awarded.

Comprehensive Exam

A comprehensive exam committee consisting of three management faculty members will be chosen by the student and approved by the Graduate Director. The comprehensive exam committee is expected to have at least one meeting with exam candidates prior to the exam. The purpose of the meeting is to provide reasonable clarification to students regarding the exam process and content boundaries. In general, the comprehensive exam is a field exam that is intended to assess and certify competence in the domain of management, with specific concentrations depending, in part, on the student.

The comprehensive exam will consist of three sets of questions:

  • One set of questions in a core area of the student’s choosing. The core areas the student can choose from include human resources, organizational behavior, strategy, entrepreneurship, leadership, and decision making/behavioral game theory.
  • One set of questions particular to the area of research the student intends to pursue for the dissertation.
  • One set of questions from research methods and statistics .

The student will take a proctored comprehensive exam in-person in the University of Nevada, Reno testing center over the course of one week. The student may choose to complete the exam either (1) in three days, attending the testing center three days in a row with one question per day, or (2) in five days, attending the testing center on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during the week with one break day between exams. In either format, the student will receive one set of questions per day on the morning of the exam day, and they will have up to nine hours per day to write an answer to that question (from 8:00am to 5:00pm). The answer to each set of questions cannot exceed 10 pages (1.5 line spacing, 12 point font, 1” margins) per set, or 30 pages total. Answers must be typed except for specialized notation if necessary.

Students are expected to prepare for the comprehensive exam in advance by studying relevant literatures and class notes as recommended by their committee members. Students will be allowed three pages of handwritten notes, front and back, for each of their three sets of questions ( i.e., nine total pages of handwritten notes, with three pages of notes allowed per exam day).

The students will be allowed a maximum of two attempts at the comprehensive exam.  Each exam can be passed at MS level (low pass) or PhD level (high pass). To proceed with the Ph.D. program the exam must be passed at the PhD level.  Otherwise, if the exam is passed at the MS level and if the academic record warrants it and the comprehensive exam committee approves of it, the student will be given the opportunity to move into a track for completing a terminal Masters in Business Administration (MBA) degree.  The comprehensive exam committee in consultation with the Graduate Director will determine if a student who does not receive a PhD Pass is awarded another chance at passing the comprehensive exam.  If a second attempt is given, the exam must be taken within three months of the date of the first exam being completed.  The Graduate Director will again approve an exam committee which may include one or more new members at the Graduate Director’s discretion.  There is no appeal process for the exam.  There will only be a written comprehensive exam.

If for any reason a student cannot sit for a scheduled comprehensive exam or has any extenuating circumstances, the student must notify Ph.D. Director at least five days before the exam begins.  Circumstances that arise less than five days before the exam or during the exam need to be reported to the Graduate Director immediately.  Extenuating circumstances reported at the end of the exam, or later, will not be considered.  Additional written information on the process of the qualifying exam is provided to each student before the exam takes place and opportunities are provided for discussion and clarification of process.

Students must produce their own scholarly work for this exam. Students are expected to demonstrate thorough knowledge of the relevant literature, as well as provide their own unique contributions, synthesis, and ideas. All writing must be produced by the student on the day of the exam. All information drawn from other sources must be cited, and any text that is copy-and-pasted must be in quotations. Students are NOT allowed to copy or use any writing from published or unpublished works, any writing produced by other students, or writing produced by artificial intelligence software in their own written answers on the exam (e.g., ChatGPT). Doing so is subject to automatic failure of the comprehensive exam.

Any clarifications or modifications that the faculty makes to the Comprehensive Exam policy will be announced to students and added to this handbook.

Doctoral students achieve candidacy status upon the successful completion of the comprehensive examination and successfully defending the dissertation proposal. Doctoral students who have been advanced to candidacy are required to maintain continuous enrollment until all degree requirements have been completed and the student has graduated. It is recommended that only at this point, after the dissertation proposal has been successfully defended, that faculty should provide letters of recommendation for any job search the student may undertake.


The dissertation represents a major research project of an original and creative nature that will advance the state of theory in the student’s major field, while meeting the requirements of the Graduate College. Given the emphasis on research in the program, the dissertation is not viewed as the student’s first research project. However, when the dissertation is completed, it signifies individual competence as a researcher.

Dissertation Committee:

The dissertation process is supervised by a dissertation committee composed of at least five faculty members: the chair, at least two faculty members from the student’s major department/program, at least one faculty member from a department in a field related to the student’s major, and at least one Graduate School representative.  The student should select a chair from the list of eligible faculty members in the department, based on mutual research interests. The selection of additional members of the committee should be based on the contributions they might make to the final product. The student, in selecting members, should consider the mix of knowledge and skills across the committee. In order to make informed judgments in this area, students should make substantial effort to interact with faculty to become aware of their research interests and areas of expertise.

Faculty members have a right to refuse the invitation to serve on a Dissertation Committee (as chair or as a committee member) and the right to withdraw from a Dissertation Committee up to the point when Dissertation Committee members indicate their approval for the student to defend their dissertation proposal. The intent is that after that point in time, the Dissertation Committee will remain intact through the completion of the dissertation and the dissertation defense.

Dissertation Options

1. Research Plan and Proposal Defense for a Traditional Dissertation :  The first step in the dissertation process involves developing a proposal indicating the research topic and the method that will be used to examine it. The topic of the dissertation is to be selected through intensive interaction with the Dissertation Committee and particularly with the chair. Once initial approval of the topic is given by the committee, a research proposal detailing the conceptual model and methods will be developed and presented for final approval. This approval will be granted by the committee upon completion of an oral defense of the proposal in a special seminar open to all faculty and doctoral students. During the defense, committee members and others may comment on the proposal, question the student, and suggest revisions. In a closed session following the defense, the committee votes to determine whether the student will be allowed to proceed with the research and decides on necessary revisions.

Generally, this defense should take place within four semesters of completing the comprehensive exam. At least one week prior to the defense, a copy of the proposal will be placed on file in the department office for review by interested parties.  The proposal will consist of (at a minimum): (1) a clear statement of the topic and an indication of its contribution to the state of theory in the field; (2) a review of relevant literature, indicating where the proposed topic fits in this literature; (3) a clear description of the methodology (e.g., sample/data source, measures, analysis) to be employed, including the rationale for this approach; and (4) a bibliography. It should be of sufficient rigor and depth that the committee is confident of the student’s ability and dedication to complete the project in a timely manner.

2. “Three-Paper Option” Dissertation: Instead of a traditional dissertation, the student has the option to adopt a three-paper format with all three papers related in a coherent fashion to the core idea of the dissertation. This option should be discussed and agreed upon by the dissertation chair and Graduate Director. The purpose of this option is to provide some flexibility in the format of the dissertation research and to ensure that the training provides the student with the best preparation for a productive research career. This format allows the student to have at least three papers ready to be submitted or already submitted to journals when they start their academic career. The quality standards are the same for both the traditional dissertation and the three-paper option. The process is similar to that of a regular dissertation. The student is expected to work with a committee to decide if the three-paper format is desirable and logical given the topic and the research plan. In other words , the three-paper option should be approved by the student’s entire Dissertation Committee, rather than just the chairperson . Also, no papers should be completed (e.g., already submitted to a journal for publication) before the committee’s approval of the overall plan. Once this decision is made, the student needs to develop a written proposal and sit for a proposal defense. After the proposal is approved at the defense, the student proceeds to complete the work and do a final dissertation defense.

a. The written proposal for the three-paper option

  • A 3-6 page summary of the research stream represented by the three proposed papers. The papers should have a coherent theme that relates to a substantive topic or theory. To prepare students with both strong theory development and empirical research skills, each paper should have a strong theoretical component.
  • A completed version of paper #1 (approximately 30 to 40 pages). This paper should serve as the foundation for the other two papers. This first paper should be close to ready for final, friendly review before submission to a journal at the time of the proposal defense. The paper should be ready for submission after the review and the committee’s judgment that it has met the quality requirements set forth.
  • Written proposal for empirical paper #2, including theory, hypotheses, and methods (approximately 15 to 20 pages).
  • A proposal for paper #3 (approximately 5-10 pages of text plus references) that details the central idea of the study/paper and its theoretical foundations.

b. The three-paper dissertation defense  

  • A revised summary of the research stream representing the three papers.
  • The presentation of completed versions of papers #2 or #3.
  • This is done in a regular defense-type setting with the committee and others who are invited.

Below are additional guidelines regarding authorship, and topics and data of the three papers.

Authorship: It is expected that all three papers directly reflect the ideas and efforts of the student. Authorship on the papers should not be part of the dissertation process. This should be decided after the dissertation is completed and the paper is ready to be sent to the journal for publication consideration. The papers, as part of the dissertation, should not have any names of co-authors, although the committee members’ names can be mentioned during any presentations. In other words, students and committee members should not focus on authorship, but rather focus on developing the papers.

Topics and data: At least one paper should involve original data collection. Students must demonstrate their empirical research skills by undertaking at least one empirical study involving substantial new data collection. If the dissertation includes a second empirical paper, that paper could be based on previously collected data, or data collected as part of a larger research project with other researchers.

The above are guidelines and the student in consultation with his or her committee might find that a broader or narrower range topic better suits his or her particular interests. However, the dissertation proposal and defense process should conform closely to the guidelines provided.

Transfer Credits

These are credits transferred from another institution. Credits completed at the University of Nevada, Reno in another program or as a graduate special do not need to be transferred. Transfer credit can be requested on the  Graduate Credit Transfer Evaluation Request form  available on Graduate School website, and must be signed by the student, major advisor, and graduate director. Transfer credits applied to a master’s program must comply with the time limitation on master’s work (6 years). Thus, if a student took a course five years prior to admission, they would have to complete the degree within one year for the course to apply to the degree. Credits from a completed master’s degree will be exempt from the 8-year time limitation for those students pursuing a doctoral degree.>

Graduate School Forms and Deadlines

  • Program of Study form (end of 3rd Year; for doctoral programs, it is the end of the 4th semester)
  • Doctoral Degree Admission to Candidacy Form - For students who have completed all requirements except for the dissertation
  • Graduation Application. This is due several weeks in advance of graduation, so check dates on Grad School website. 
  • Notice of Completion. Should be submitted after meeting all requirements, including defending your dissertation.  
  • Exit Survey

Conference & Publication Aspirations

Students are encouraged to begin submitting and presenting papers to national, regional, and specialized conferences (e.g., Academy of Management, Western Academy of Management, Judgment and Decision Making) by their second year. First year students are encouraged to attend (with partial department financial support) the annual Academy of Management meeting and participate in the New Doctoral Student Consortium. Visibility at conferences enables students to meet other scholars in the field and eventually provides job placement and networking opportunities. 

Publications are important for all of our students and are emphasized in the program as a highly desirable research outcome. As a general guideline, students should begin working on a publishable research project in their first year through their graduate assistantship and/or major paper in their field of specialization. It is expected that prior to the dissertation phase, students will have two or more manuscripts published or under review for publication. This level of research productivity is necessary in order to be competitive in the job market.

Yearly Progress Report and Feedback to Students

By the end of May each year, the Ph.D. Director will solicit feedback from faculty to develop a development progress report on each doctoral student.  This progress report documents and evaluates the student’s accomplishments and activities during the year and is intended to help the student continue making successful progress through the program. Evaluations are made of course progress, research progress, teaching activities, and service.

Each student will also be asked to complete a self-evaluation, recording and evaluating his/her past activities, and setting developmental goals for the coming year. This form is submitted to the primary supervising faculty member, who uses the information as input to his/her final evaluation. For first year students, additional inputs are sought from all faculty members who taught the Ph.D. courses.  The primary faculty advisor and/or Ph.D. Director will then meet with the student to conduct a developmental feedback session prior to the beginning of the next academic year.

A copy of the final evaluation is forwarded to the Management Department Ph.D. Committee. The Ph.D. Committee reviews all progress reports, research papers, transcripts, other faculty inputs and may make recommendations for student development beyond those provided by the advisor/Ph.D. Director. If sufficient progress is not being made, a student may be recommended for probation or dismissal, subject to University Graduate Schools dismissal policies . 

Research Advisor

Students are encouraged to begin working on research projects with faculty members as soon as possible. A Research Advisor from the Program faculty should be selected to supervise the first year summer project.  By the end of the second year a student should be developing a relationship with a faculty member who will serve as the student’s dissertation advisor.  Students are encouraged to work with as many faculty members as possible but once an advisor has been selected for a project it is expected that the student will continue to work with that faculty member until the end of the project.  The relationship between a student and faculty member is collaborative and long lasting and both parties must be voluntary participants in the relationship. Your advisor(s) should be the primary Department contact for information, guidance and mentoring throughout a student's graduate studies.

Graduate Assistantship

Graduate student funding is awarded based on merit. Continuation of funding is contingent upon satisfactory performance as a graduate assistant and in course work. Failure to perform satisfactorily as either a graduate assistant or in course work can result in a loss of funding.

All new graduate teaching assistants will need to meet the University and Department requirements for Teaching Assistants, and these may change from time to time — please consult with the graduate advisor.

All teaching assistants must register for GRAD 701S (no credit) and attend the TA training workshop , run by the Graduate School, the week prior to the start of their first semester as a TA. 

Teaching assistants will report directly to the course instructor to whom they are assigned. Their responsibilities to assist the course instructor may include, but are not limited to, the following tasks:

  • attending class and assisting, as needed, with distributing materials, setting up and operating audiovisual equipment;
  • conducting discussion groups;
  • directing student study sessions;
  • assisting in the development of lectures, assignments, quizzes, examinations and laboratories and/or discussion groups;
  • proctoring examinations;
  • grading of class assignments, quizzes and examinations;
  • giving short presentations to the class, under supervision by the course instructor
  • TAs should be available to students during office hours.
  • TAs must take a between 6-12 credits per semester

All graduate students holding an assistantship (teaching GTA or GRA) are considered Nevada residents for tuition purposes. Non-resident tuition is only waived for the duration of the assistantship. To be eligible for an assistantship, students must be admitted to a degree-granting program and be in good academic standing. The student must have an overall GPA of at least 3.0 and must be continuously enrolled in at least 6 graduate level credits (600-700) throughout the duration of the assistantship. State-funded assistantships (GTA/GRA) may be held for a maximum of: three (3) years for master’s degree students and five (5) years for doctoral degree students.

Graduate Student Expectations

Development of teaching competence .

The development of teaching skills is accomplished through several interrelated activities. One activity is the assistantship described above. Students can learn-by-doing by assisting a faculty member in the design of course materials, developing and grading tests, and also conducting in- class activities. In addition to the assistantship, the university provides several resources for the development of teaching skills.

The University and the Graduate School offer faculty/GTA development seminars and workshops on teaching throughout the year. From time to time, the brown- bag seminars are focused on teaching skills. As the department and college has many faculty noted for teaching excellence, students are encouraged to visit and observe as many faculty classrooms as they can. Students are expected to begin their teaching development activities in their first year as these will be important elements in landing an academic job.


Students will be expected to adhere to all the guidelines in University of Nevada, Reno student code of conduct . Academic dishonesty of any kind will not be tolerated.  Cheating in class or plagiarizing, presenting the ideas of others as your own or without proper citation, will not be tolerated. Anyone suspected of violating academic standards will be treated consistent with Section 6,502 of the University Administrative Manual .  In addition, we strongly encourage collaboration, transparency, and sharing of relevant information.

Department Participation

Ph.D. students are expected to participate in the research culture of the department. We expect students to attend all department seminars, lectures, brown bags, etc. unless there is an important reason for being absent. 

Graduate School Academic Requirements

Please view the Graduate School's full academic standing and dismissal policy .

Health Insurance 

All domestic degree seeking graduate students, who are enrolled in six or more credits (regardless of the course level) in a semester, will be automatically enrolled and billed for the University sponsored health insurance for each term they are eligible (fall & spring/summer).  The details of the insurance program and waive-out options are found here.   The student is responsible for meeting the requirements of the insurance program or waiving out.

It is UNR policy that international students have health insurance coverage with appropriate repatriation and medical evacuation provisions. For the fall semester insurance coverage normally begins about August 23 and ends about January 17 of the following year. Spring/summer coverage begins about January 17 and ends August 28. The exact dates may change every year. If students are arriving early for their first semester at UNR, they may want to use travel insurance until their health insurance coverage begins.   View more information about health insurance.

Leave of Absence

Continuous Enrollment: To maintain “good standing” all graduate students are required to enroll in a minimum of three (3) graduate credits each fall and spring semester until they graduate. International students may be required to enroll in nine graduate credits each fall and spring semester depending on the requirements of their visa. All students holding assistantships (whether teaching or research assistantships) are required to enroll in a minimum of six (6) graduate credits each semester they hold the assistantship.

Leave of Absence: Students in good standing may request a leave of absence by completing a leave of absence form available on the Graduate School website during which time they are not required to maintain continuous registration. Usually, a leave of absence is approved for one or two semesters. The leave of absence request may be extended by the student filing an additional leave of absence form. Students applying for a leave of absence should not have any “incomplete” grades which could be changed to “F” and have a detrimental impact on their cumulative GPA. Requests for leave of absences must be received by the Graduate School no later than the last day of enrollment for the semester the leave is to begin.

Reinstatement: When a student has been absent for one semester or more without an approved leave of absence, he or she may request reinstatement via the Reinstatement form available on the Graduate School website. This form allows the program the option to recommend the student be re-admitted to their graduate program based on their previous admission OR require the student to re-apply for admission which would require students to submit a new application for admission and pay the application fee. The Notice of Reinstatement to Graduate Standing must be received by the Graduate School no later than the last day of enrollment for the semester the reinstatement is to begin.

Graduate Student Association

The Graduate Student Association (GSA) represents all graduate students and promotes the welfare and interests of the graduate students at the University of Nevada, Reno. The GSA works closely with appropriate university administrative offices, including the Graduate School and Student Services and reports to the President of the University. The GSA government functions through the Council of Representatives, Executive Council and established committees.

How to write a phd research proposal on business management .

For a PhD management student venturing into finalizing their topic for research , the first step before beginning their research will be to convince the approval committee of their project. The document that assists this process is the research proposal. Writing a research proposal could be facile when approached systematically.

The research proposal is not mandatory in some cases; nevertheless, writing one satisfies other purposes than getting approval for the project. Hence, it is essential to understand what a research proposal is, what it contains.

The document is approximately 3000-4000 words long, depending on the university requirements, designed to give an outline of the research proposed, along with the limitations and constraints it may face, the cost it would require, the time it would take, the objectives and the expected impact the results would have on the field.

A word of advice for the ones stuck in the process of proposal writing for too long, Management research proposal writing services   understand your proposal needs and assists you in writing a winning bid.

Evaluating the ideas

The whole idea behind awarding the doctoral title for a research and the researcher is the contribution of new concepts, ideas, and knowledge via their study. Hence, it is imperative that the research is original and this is a pre-requisite for any committee whose approval stands between the idea and the commencement of the project. The research proposal, thus, is a tool to evaluate the originality of the research. It puts forth a sound enunciation of the quality of the ideas behind the research and an evaluation of the researcher’s proficiency in their selected domain. Researches in management science deal with one of the two things, development of new theories or finding a solution for an existing problem in practice. Thus, the faculty of the researcher to identify and effectively deal a solution to a problem forms the crux of the bid.

How to write a research proposal:

How to write a PhD research proposal on Business Management

Title Page:

Provide a working title of your research in concern. Though this title may not be the final one, it will express your research ideas in a transparent manner.

In this section give a concise notion regarding the domain of study by outlining the scope that you are covering in the research.

Research problem :  

Discuss problems that you want to study and dedicate a few lines for explaining the significance of doing so.

Literature Review :

The proposal should lay down your awareness of the essential literatures in your topic. The arguments that you are going to support should also be outlined in the proposal. Notwithstanding, identifying the present gaps is very important. While you are going through important literature in your subject, you must precisely demonstrate in what way they are pertinent to your area of study. You should have fine grasp that a PhD is an original contribution and there should be clear explanation that your proposed area is not a topic of study earlier.

Important research questions:

Following the literature review, you would have identified a research problem. From this, you will be in a better position to pose a research question. It is good if you pose at least 3 research questions.


This element talks about the way you are going to perform the research while also providing the reason why a particular is chosen; the merits and demerits, if any, of the methods together form the methodology. Sketch an outline of the limitations you may encounter during the research.


Here you delineate the time frame of your research. This section informs of the time scheduled for each task in the process.

References :

It is very essential to provide all the references when you complete your proposal. Moreover, formatting the document is very important; ensure that it is consistent with the recommended style of your university.

If everything mentioned above happens to go over your head and you feel suffocated about the whole prospect, do consider approaching Business Management dissertation writing help, who understands your proposal concerns and helps in framing a proper research proposal.

Keep in mind that the research proposal is not carved in stone. It is a provisional document and will undergo vast changes in the ongoing PhD course. At the same time, it is a pivotal document that helps the committee to understand your interest towards the research. So don’t consider it trivial and ensure to make it as appealing as possible.

How to Format a PhD Synopsis (India)

Qamar Mayyasah

  • By Qamar Mayyasah
  • August 26, 2020



This article will answer common questions about the PhD synopsis, give guidance on how to write one, and provide my thoughts on samples.

A PhD synopsis is a detailed summary of your proposed research project which justifies the need for your work. It is used to convince academic committees that your project should be approved.

If you are wondering how to write a synopsis for a PhD, then there are several things you must make sure your synopsis includes. Firstly, the reader must be able to read your synopsis and understand what contribution it would make to the research area. You should also explain the research objectives, methodology, data analysation and presentation format. Finally, you should conclude with limitations of your study and how you envisage others building on the findings you make.

PhD Synopsis format for a project

Although the format of a PhD synopsis report may differ between universities, there are many universal recommendations I can give. First, the research project synopsis format must include several fundamental sections which allow you to clearly detail your proposed project.

These sections are outlined below:

Research project title

Clearly define the title of your research project.

Include an introduction which summarises the current knowledge in your research area. This section should explain where gaps in knowledge are, and briefly what your project aims to do to address these gaps.

Literature review

A literature review will be a summary of published literature including journals, papers and other academic documentation which relate to your project. You need to critically appraise these documents: What have others done? What did they find? Where could their work be expanded on?

Aims & Objectives

Clearly define what the purpose of the PhD project is. What questions are you trying to answer? How will you measure success?

Research Methodology

Explain how you will achieve your objectives. Be specific and outline your process; the equipment you will use, data collection strategies, questionnaires you will distribute and data analysation techniques you will employ. This is a critical part of the research synopsis as it demonstrates whether your project is achievable or too ambitious.

You must provide references and citations to any sources you use. Reference materials are needed to acknowledge the original source, allow further reading for those who are interested and avoid claims of plagiarism. A number of different referencing systems exist, so it is important that you use the referencing system outlined in your university guidelines.

Provide a conclusion which should briefly summarise what your PhD research project is and why it is needed. You should also comment on the limitations of your work so that the scope of your study is clear.

In addition to the synopsis format for a PhD, we have outlined the styling rules you should follow:

  • Approximately 1” margins on top, bottom, and right of page.
  • Approximately 1.25” margin on left of page to allow space for binding.
  • Sans serif font (for example Times New Roman).
  • Black colour font.
  • Size 11pt or 12pt font.

It is important to remember this is general advice to assist with PhD synopsis writing. You must check your university guidelines first as they may have particular rules which you should follow.

PhD Synopsis Samples

I would not recommend using a PhD synopsis sample. This is because every research project is different, and the purpose of a synopsis report is to demonstrate the uniqueness of your project. Instead you should use the above format, and ensure you address each of the sections.

Finding a PhD has never been this easy – search for a PhD by keyword, location or academic area of interest.

Making the Invisible Visible in Type 2 Diabetes Management

Information provided by dexcom.


Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) has long been thought of as a tool for people managing diabetes and treated with intensive insulin therapy. A growing body of evidence, however, suggests that benefits of CGM extend to those treated with non-intensive insulin therapy, as well as those treated with non-insulin therapies. 1

While NHANES data indicate that only 50% of people with diabetes (PWD) are reaching A1C goals of <7%, 2 those provided CGM demonstrate significant reductions in A1C within a matter of months, even reaching A1C values <7%. 3 Notably, in a recent 6-month study performed in people with type 2 diabetes (T2D) treated with basal insulin or non-insulin therapies, participants initiated on real-time CGM experienced an average 3% reduction in A1C (P<0.001). 3 Similar reductions were observed for participants whether they were treated with ≤1 or ≥2 diabetes medications.

Each year, 1.2 million adults are diagnosed with diabetes. 4 Navigating a new T2D diagnosis can generate feelings of shock, denial, and helplessness, 5 and without effective tools to know which behavior change(s) to make and if they are helping, crucial time may be lost in taking action for better health. The future risk of long-term complications related to diabetes and mortality is strongly associated with diabetes management soon after diagnosis. 6 Individuals with A1C values ≥6.5% in the first year after T2D diagnosis show worse long-term microvascular and macrovascular outcomes compared to those with A1C ≤6.5%. 7 The value of CGM in diabetes management exists regardless of insulin use, 3 and it can be a critical tool in helping those newly diagnosed with diabetes learn quickly, stay engaged, and optimize their glycemic management to promote long-term health.

Watch this video presentation  to learn about the use of real-time CGM as a motivational support tool in T2D from two experts in diabetes management, William Polonsky, PhD, CDCES, and Thomas Grace, MD, CDCES. Together, they discuss how CGM can promote behavior change, improve quality of life, and reduce A1C in all PWD.

Male mice of the BALB/c strain were given a solution of 15% ethanol as their only source of fluid during either 24 or 48 weeks. They were submitted to a sequential alternation (SA) task in a T-maze (6 successive trials). It was found that 48 but not 24 weeks of alcohol administration lead to a deficit as compared to pair-fed or tap-water controls. Whereas experimental mice performed as well as controls on the first 3 choices, they exhibited a gradual decrease in the SA rate on subsequent trials. We suggest that this deficit might result from an exaggerated vulnerability to proactive interference (PI). In order to further test this hypothesis, a second experiment investigated whether a between-trials variation of context of the maze would increase performance. It was found that the SA rate improved as soon as the variation was provided (5th trial). We suggest that the deficit of experimental mice results from an impairment of retrieval processes. A neuroanatomical study was conducted...

An intrinsic problem of classifiers based on machine learning (ML) methods is that their learning time grows as the size and complexity of the training dataset increases. For this reason, it is important to have efficient computational methods and algorithms that can be applied on large datasets, such that it is still possible to complete the machine learning tasks in reasonable time. In this context, we present in this paper a simple process to speed up ML methods. An unsupervised clustering algorithm is combined with Expectation, Maximization (EM) algorithm to develop an efficient Hidden Markov Model (HMM) training. The idea of the proposed process consists of two steps. The first one involves a preprocessing step to reduce the number of training instances with any information loss. In this step, training instances with similar inputs are clustered and a weight factor which represents the frequency of these instances is assigned to each representative cluster. In the second step, ...

Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries is a rare congenital malformation in which there is an atrioventricular connection and discordant arterial ventricle. Its prevalence is around 0.5% among congenital heart diseases and is usually accompanied by other defects, as well as associated with the development of complications such as total atrioventricular block and right ventricular dysfunction around 30 years of age, which limit survival. In this case, we describe a patient with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries, mild insufficiency of the tricuspid valve, diagnosed with congenital syphilis and treated neonatal jaundice. Despite this, she was discharged with 13 days of life, in good condition.

Recent PhD graduate receives top dissertation award

Washington State University logo.

Zhipeng Li, a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has been recognized with the Milton Pikarsky award for the best dissertation in the field of science and technology in transportation studies.

He will receive the national recognition at the Council of University Transportation Centers’ winter meeting in January in Washington DC.

Closeup of Zhipeng Li

Li’s research has focused on the upcycling of fly ash, a byproduct of coal combustion, as a sustainable substitute for traditional cement.

Production of concrete, which is made by combining cement with sand and gravel, contributes about 8% of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide because the cement production process needs very high temperatures and a tremendous amount of energy.

Fly ash, meanwhile, has become a significant waste management issue in the United States. More than 50% of fly ash ends up in landfills, where it can easily leach into the nearby environment. Its chemical composition resembles cement, so it could be used as a substitute to reduce carbon emissions associated with the cement industry.

“By adopting this nanotechnology-enhanced geopolymer as a replacement for traditional cement, we make a substantial contribution to the reduction of carbon emissions in the construction industry,” Li said. “This represents a crucial step towards promoting sustainable development.”

Li received his PhD in 2023 and is continuing his research on sustainable concrete substitutes for developing carbon-neutral/negative concrete infrastructure.
