Contributions to the scientific field
Does the study allow the extension, deepening or transformation of existing knowledge in your area of study?
At this point it is necessary to highlight if the research introduces novel contributions to the field in which it is framed.
Does it provide practical solutions to a specific problem, be it social, economic, political, medical, among others?
A project always seeks the solution of the problematic situation. If the study offers a serious contribution regarding the solution of the problem in a practical and feasible way it should be explained in the justification.
Relevance of research for policy formulation
Will the results of the research allow the creation of programs, plans or policies in a certain area, be it social, economic, educational, among others?
In order to provide truly feasible solutions to a problematic situation, it is necessary to develop and execute programs that act directly on the situation. If the research leads to these programs, it is necessary to explain it in the justification.
Importance for social change
If the research provides a solution that is visible and quantifiable in the social field, it is of vital importance that it be included in the justification, this enhances it and allows us to see that the objective of the project is really feasible and significant for the reality in which develops
At this point it is necessary to indicate the interest of the researcher regarding the subject, if it seeks to generate new knowledge in his professional area or if he has a philanthropic vision that leads him to want to solve the problem for the common good.
Do you open a door for future jobs?
All research work must generate a contribution in the field in which it operates.
If this contribution in turn allows the creation of new spaces in the lines of research or fields of knowledge, so that future researchers can also direct their research along this path, it must be included in the justification.
Where does the justification of a project go?
Academic texts have their own structure, which must be respected because it is established in a methodological way in order to facilitate the presentation of information and the gradual understanding of it.
The justification is part of the first chapter of a research project. This chapter is usually called “The Research Problem” and is found just after the introduction of the project.
In this first chapter the description of the problem and its context is made, then the objectives of the investigation are presented and then the justification of it is carried out.
What is the justification for a community project?
A community project focuses on the realization of an action plan that allows urgent and promptly meet certain needs of the civil community. These projects seek to meet specific needs.
All communities present different requirements daily. Therefore, the projects focus on addressing specific problems and provide real solutions that generate the greatest benefit to the inhabitants of the community and that will last over time.
A justification for a community project must ensure the real need for the application of the project.
It must also guarantee that its application will resolve the problematic situation or to some extent help its improvement. For this it must contain:
Life projects have very personal characteristics because it is about what you as an individual want for your life.
The way forward, your goals drawn. Each life project is different and presents the information according to personal interests.
In that sense, the justification of a life project is presented from the importance that the project has in the life of the person, its objectives, relevance and the way to achieve them.
Life projects are plotted according to time, are usually organized according to a short, medium and long term.
In the short term, the next plans are framed, in the medium term what is even more distant or requires more time for its realization and in the long term it can be the final goal of a first stage of life, for example: obtaining a university degree.
According to this, the justification must reflect, in the first place, the interest of the person in terms of their goals, their motivation and in an objective and conscious way the time in which they aspire to achieve them.
You must include an assessment of the resources available to you to achieve it and the strategies you will execute for it.
Likewise, the life project is based on the impact that personal actions have on the environment, such as the family, the work or social field in which people develop and are usually framed in those contexts.
Therefore, in the justification it is important to consider the social and family impact that the project implies for those involved and if measures must be taken to allow it to be carried out without negatively affecting the rest of those involved.
