RSCH 600 Research proposal PART 1



You need to conduct some research related to your own interests or to serve the interests of some organization
(employer/client/sponsor). Before you start writing a formal proposal, you (or your employer/client/sponsor) would like to
gather some information about the problem as well as understand its importance.
Choose your research topic thoughtfully, as this assignment will be part of your term paper.

Title of your research
Make it intriguing – (BUT LESS THAN 120 CHARACTERS)

Provide a brief description of what the proposed research topic is about, why is it important and how you came to be
interested in it.

Literature Review

The purpose of this assignment is to develop skills in finding and analyzing valid literary resources for your research.
The review should be written in an integral / synthetic style, and NOT as an annotated bibliography.
This part of your research proposal should be roughly 7-9 pages (excluding cover page and references) and written in
paragraphs, report format. All citations and references for this course are to be done in the APA style.

Please note: Use in-text citations to reference all ideas, concepts, text, and data that are not your own. If you make a
statement, back it up with a reference!

• Research a minimum of 15 relevant business-related literature sources (focus on material available in digital
format only for this course). Carefully choose your 15 “keepers” that are clearly related to your study. (Note: you
might need to find 50 to “keep” only 15).

  • Identify major common themes encountered in the selected literature sources. For each theme, create its ownsubsection within the literature review.
  • For each theme / subsection of the literature review, explain the opinions of the authors and show their similarities,
  • differences, methods of acquisition of data, methods of data analysis and other pertinent information. State how

    the reviewed research results relate to your proposed study.

  • Identify the gaps in the literature and explain what needs to be done to move forward in your research.
  • Critique and analyze the similarities and differences among the articles (e.g. different or the same point of views?
  • different or the same research methods? why? etc.). Identify the gaps in the literature and provide

    recommendations for what needs to be done to move forward in your research. You will be using the information

    in this section in the final research proposal as well.

  • Design a literature map of the sources you have found for your Research Proposal. This map should help you
  • organize your source materials in a way that will facilitate the organization and writing of your Literature Review.

    Note: For the final research proposal, you need to review more than 15 literature sources. Aim for at least 50.
