Yesterday, I was providing advice to a researcher for a grant application resubmission.
You know how it goes: they had put something in last year, it had been reviewed, then rejected. I offered to have a look at it, to treat it as a first draft for this year’s application round.
It turned out that I thought that the researcher needed to:
- Clarify the core research question,
- Cut back on the background, and
- Flesh out the project plan.
This is pretty standard. I tell people this a lot!
I’m thinking of getting a ‘Detail! Detail! Detail!’ t-shirt made up.
