how to write a rationale for research
This chapter builds on the first five chapters in this handbook that explained the research design typology. The focus here is on establishing rationale and significance of research. This chapter is intended to serve as a guide for practitioners to apply and integrate the research design typology layers into a scholarly manuscript. In contrast to the broad scope of the first five chapters, this chapter concentrates on how to integrate specific components of the typology regardless of which ideology the researcher holds on the continuum (positivist, post-positivist, pragmatist, interpretivist, or constructivist).

A rationale is, as the name implies, a rational explanation for something. In the case of copywriters, it’s simply a short document that explains the creative strategy behind the copy, what you expect the package will accomplish and why.
Unlike an outline, a rationale isn’t simply a chronological list of the things you want to say. It’s a tool to help you organize your thoughts and think through some of the fuzzier ideas that always float around in your head at the beginning of a project.
