Hi, I am applying to PhD programme in Management in the UK. As part of my application package I need to write a research proposal. My topic is related to International Human Resource Management. I've done the lit.review and wrote most part of the research proposal: why and what on the topic, research questions/hypotheses. But when it came to Research methodology section, I am not sure how far I should go. I wrote that I will use preliminary interviews with some participants first, and then develop a survey questionnaire that I will send to a large group of managers. Should I tell what questions I will ask, and whether I will develop my own instrument, or use someone else’s questionnaire to test hypotheses? I have no idea how it will go as I haven't read all the literature on the topic yet. I plan to do so in my first year of PhD programme. Also, how long should this section be in a proposal of 1000 words (3 pages)?
