Preparing Interim and Final Reports

The following pages contain guidelines only. They do not need to be followed precisely.

You may well be asked to supply reports to other sponsors of your expedition, and they may provide alternative guidelines.

The Expeditions Committee will accept reports in alternative formats, but would like to see material relating to all the headings mentioned in the following sections in your submissions. These pages are intended to help you produce professional documents that do justice to your efforts abroad, and are not necessarily the best blueprint for your report. Reports based on dissertation research projects should be just that: but please add an informative 'top' and 'tail'. An introduction should explain the origin and organisation of the expedition. A final section should give full details of your budget, donations and grants received, equipment loans and other assistance in kind, and full details for your main contacts both at home and abroad, with a brief explanation of their roles .
