Doctoral Capstone Preproposal Starter Kit:

Writing Resources for Doctoral Students in the Initial Stages of Development
These resources are for doctoral students at the premise and prospectus stages and who are not yet working on their official proposal documents.


Understand your strengths and weaknesses as an independent academic writer. Keep in mind that writing a doctoral capstone study is a unique process, and grades on previous coursework are often not a sufficient indicator of how prepared you are to complete a longer piece of original research.
