Final Research Report Instructions and Template
MassDOT requires that all Final Research Reports are formatted consistently as described in the Final Report Instructions (Final Report Instructions.pdf). The Instructions for Preparation of Cooperative Research Program Reports as well as the Chicago Manual of Style were referenced to generate these guidelines. If the researcher feels that variance from this format would better present the research in question, they must submit a written request to MassDOT.
A Final Research Report Template is provided here (Final Research Report Template.doc). This Template can be downloaded and used to format your report according to MassDOT requirements.
