•A clear identification of your target population
•A description and justification of your sampling plan
•Any ethical issues that may be connected to your study
•Your expected results
•Threats to the internal validity of the study
•Threats to the external validity of the study
•Any limitations to the conclusions that you can make
•Recommendations for future research on this topic
