Paper Proposal Format

A proper review of your paper proposal requires that it contain adequate information on which to make a judgement. The suggested limit of 225-450 words should not be constraining if the paper proposal is limited to the following factual highlights:

  • Description of the Proposal Paper: Outline the scope and nature of the work upon which the paper is based (e.g., field data, laboratory data, original analysis, or computer work). If the paper is a review paper, carefully state the extent of the coverage.
  • Application: Describe the possible applications of the information provided in the paper.
  • Results, Observations, and Conclusions: Summarise the results and major conclusions to be presented in the paper, and state how these differ from previous work on the same subject. State whether new information will be revealed and whether the data from field, laboratory, or computer work will be included.
  • Significance of Subject Matter: Describe the significance of the proposed paper by listing up to three technical contributions or additions to the technical knowledge base of the petroleum industry.
