The Office of Research and Doctoral Programs is here to support Fox and STHM faculty, staff and doctoral students. Learn more about how the Office can help you find funding sources, prepare and submit proposals, and administer research grants.

Academic and Research Copy Editing Services

The Fox School of Business offers the services of an in-house editor to provide Fox and STHM doctoral students and faculty with proofreading, line editing and feedback for their academic and research writing, such as scholarly articles, dissertations, conference papers and other peer reviewed written materials. The academic editor is also available for one-on-one coaching with a focus on improving academic writing skills, and offers periodic workshops on writing topics for PhD students during the Fall and Spring semesters.

Doctoral students (PhD and DBA) and faculty can submit requests for editing assistance using the following steps:

1) Schedule. 

When you are ready to submit a request, visit the scheduling page and select the date you would like to schedule your submission. Note: Your paper will be returned within four business days of that scheduled submission, so plan accordingly.

2) Submit

You will receive an email the day your submission is scheduled reminding you to submit the paper. When you are ready to submit your paper, please use the submission portal.

3) Wait for Review.

After submission, the academic editor will have up to four business days to review your paper. We require at least four days after submission for the editor to provide thorough feedback.

Grant Writing Support Services

Grant writing is a necessity for many Fox and STHM doctoral students and faculty in order to find new funding sources and build research networks. The Office of Research can help guide your research grant writing from proposal to budget preparation.

First, view the revised grant writing workbook, updated October 2018. This tool will help any researcher refine the scope and direction of your individual proposal to ensure an effective and competitive application.

Need more help? The Office can support you in locating funding opportunities; coordinating with Temple University’s Office of Research; facilitating the grant application process; assisting with the proposal entry through the Electronic Research Administration process; advocating for faculty; tracking the allocation of grant expenses and burn rates; and assisting with the timely submission of periodic and final grant reports.

To receive support in drafting, submitting, and tracking grants, please contact foxresearch@temple.edu.

Deadlines & Requirement

Come prepared! In order to help Fox faculty and doctoral students most effectively, the Office requests that you have the following items ready:

  • The research project abstract
  • A draft budget and budget justification
  • The researcher’s current CV

In order to submit a grant proposal in time, please keep in mind the following deadlines:

  • The Office of Research requires an abstract (final format not necessary), a budget, and budget justification two (2) weeks prior to the deadline.
  • All administrative portions of the submission must be submitted five (5) full business days prior to the deadline.
  • The scientific portion or research plan must be submitted two (2) full business days prior to the deadline.

Research Dissemination

You put in all the work—collecting data, analyzing information, writing the article. But then what? The Office of Research is here to help Fox faculty and doctoral students get their research out into the world.

First, upload your paper to the Social Science Research Network (SSRN). Why? To name just a few reasons: it enhances your online presence, makes your research accessible, and allows you to start collecting citations. It also will be added to the Fox School Research Paper Series, a monthly e-journal with over 6,000 subscribers. Click here for instructions.
