I want to know about appropriate actions to take when not receiving an e-mail reply from professors after 2 to 3 weeks of sending an e-mail.
When writing my e-mails, I try to highlight questions and important points leaving other details in normal style to make the reader quickly understand what am I asking for. Additionally, I start the e-mail with Dear Professor , I conclude with a respectful salutation form and I proof read the text of the e-mails multiple times. I am sending e-mails to professors asking them for a graduation project proposal.
E-mails are sent to professors responsible for European or North American funded research projects. Professors to whom I sent e-mails are from various institutions and countries (USA, Canada, Switzerland). The same problem is faced in previous occasions when I needed to send e-mails for various purposes but I don't receive replies except for one or two times. I tried twice sending reminders after a reasonable time (one to two weeks) of sending the first e-mail but no response is received!
N.B: if it's helpful to mention, my field is not covered by any research lab and not taught in any university in my country. And this is what makes the problem more complicated!
