General Guideline

Prepare your individual research project by using the following general guideline (the instructor will provide more detail on these elements during the class time).

1. Abstract (an abstract is a brief summary of a research article)

2. Table of Contents

3. Introduction (Topic, Research Objectives, Context, and Rationale, some general literature review). In this section, you will present your research topic, rationale for choosing your research topic using academic references, the context for your research topic, some general/brief literature review of the topic, and the general objectives for conducting the research.

4. Here you provide all the purposes of your study

5. Here you provide information about the significance (contributions) of the study.

6. Please note that point # 6 and 7above (6- Specific literature review; 7 -development of Hypotheses) can be combined together or could have separate sections.

Your literature review should review at least 10 published, peer-reviewed scholarly literature relevant to your research topic and question(s). In your review, you should:

· Summarize and analyze the major findings, themes, perspectives, and types of prior research conducted on your topic.

· Connect your research question within the literature you reviewed. In other words, identify the gaps in the literature and determine how your research is related to the problems identified in the literature.

· Research hypotheses (make sure to formulate your hypotheses based on prior research findings and/or based on theoretical background)

7. Hypotheses (you develop your hypotheses here if you did not include them in part 6).

8. Development of a figure that captures your Conceptual Model.

9. Methodology

a. Data

b. Participants

c. Measures

d. Data and method(s) for collecting data (interview, questionnaire, observation etc.)

e. Development of questionnaire and/or interview questions

Make sure to take the following issues in consideration while completing the methodology section (not necessarily in that order)

· Describe the participants and their characteristics.

· Describe the process of collecting the data.

· Discuss the types of data (i.e. qualitative, quantitative, or mixed) you intend to collect with your chosen methodology.

· Critically analyze the ethical implications of your research methodology and methods and explain how you will address any ethical challenges.

· Development of questionnaire and or interview questions

10. Analysis (Present the method of analysis for testing your hypotheses. (Descriptive statistics, correlations, ANOVA, MANOVA, Regression, etc.…)

11. Discussion

a. Summary of Major Findings

b. Practical Implications

c. Limitations of the Study

d. Future Research

e. Conclusion

12. References

13. Tables

14. Figures

15. Appendices
