LIST OF TABLES TABLE NO. TABLE TITLE PAGE NO.


* AN ILLUSTRATION OF LISTING TABLES & FIGURES FOR EXAMPLE: - If your Table No. is 1 in Chapter 2, and Heading is Five Yearly Sale (From 1990 1995)on page no. 5, then following

method should be adopted: 2.1 Five Yearly Sale 5 (From 1990-1995)

The same pattern should be adopted while representing Figures. CHAPTER-WISE GUIDELINES CHAPTER-1 INTRODUCTION Broad sub-headings should be numbered as 1.1, 1.2 etc. For e.g.. 1.1 INTRODUCTION TO THE COMPANY (NAME) 1.2 INTRODUCTION TO THE PROJECT/STUDY (PROJECT TOPIC) CHAPTER-2 REVIEW OF LITERATURE Give introductory and concluding lines

For e.g. Introductory lines: Various studies on capital structure related to small and medium enterprises had been conducted in foreign countries. However, in Indian context, the number is quite few. Depending on the various issues of capital structure, the review has been discussed in brief as follows: And, Concluding lines: The perusal of the literature reveals that still today, the capital structure decision is considered as a puzzle. A rich literature house has been developed over time, mostly in foreign countries, with regard to how the firm funds its growing investment projects. Particularly, the firms choice between internal equity capital, external capital and debt has been widely investigated from a large firms angle leaving aside small businesses. This is mainly due to the tendency of SMEs to treat the financings issues as confidential. Also, the main focus of the previous studies has been mainly on the determinants of capital structure in general rather than industry specific study. That is why a need was felt to conduct a study in Indian context and that too in case of SMEs that has not been extensively researched, yet is contributing a lot to the economy. Do not number the reviews Give the reviews in chronological order. If more than one review is there in one year then follow the alphabetical order. Only mention the second name of the author (Year) to be mentioned in bold. For e.g.

Davidson (2009) or Davidson and Dutia (2010) Do not mention the study title in the review. For e.g.

Davidson and Dutia (1991) measured liquidity, profitability and leverage for samples of small enterprises. Their results indicated that SMEs had lower levels of liquidity than large enterprises. However, they also found that the smallest enterprises carried disproportionately more cash and total current assets than large enterprises, with the reason for their lower liquidity being a disproportionately greater use of current liabilities. CHAPTER-3 NEED, SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY 3.1 NEED OF THE STUDY The need should cover the research gap as identified from conclusion of reviews and also the relevance of the study. 3.2 SCOPE OF THE STUDY The scope should cover the area, time and location 3.3 OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY The objectives should be related to the topic and should be justified by the questionnaire. There should be no overlapping of the objectives. CHAPTER-4 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY The research methodology should begin with the basic introduction to research. 4.1 RESEARCH DESIGN Specify the type of research design and justify it. 4.2 SAMPLING DESIGN 4.2.1 4.2.2 4.2.3 4.2.4 4.2.5 Universe Sampling Frame Sampling Unit Sample Size Sampling Technique
