In the Selection of Subjects section of your proposal, you will describe how you will select your sample from the total possible subjects. Depending on the data-collection method you plan to employ, either probability or nonprobability sampling may be appropriate for your study. Similarly, this aspect of your proposal may involve the sampling of subjects or informants, or it could involve the sampling of corporations, cities, books, and so forth.
Your proposal, then, must specify what units you will be sampling among, the data you will use for purposes of your sample selection (your sampling frame, for instance), and the actual sampling methods you plan to use.
If you were actually going to be doing the study that you are proposing, you would need to file an application with the Institutional Review Board (IRB) at BVU. You are not going to be doing the study, so you do not need to file an application. However, it is important to know that this is a requirement when doing a study. This is for the protection of research subjects: avoiding harm, safeguarding their privacy, and so forth.
In the Ethical Issues section of your paper you will want to include a discussion of the ethical risks involved in your study and the steps you will take to avoid them. Perhaps you will prepare forms to ensure the subjects are aware of and give their informed consent to the risks that may be involved as a result of their participation. The terms anonymous and/or confidential are likely to appear in your discussion.
