Research Proposal GuidelinesOverview: In place of a final exam, you will complete a research proposal to demonstrate mastery over the topics covered in class this semester. Your research proposal will cover the foundations for a study you are proposing within the field of criminal justice or criminology. This is not your typical “talk about a topic” paper/presentation. You will be proposing a research study designed to answer your chosen research question. You will just be proposing a study—you will not actually be conducting it, so you won’t need to conduct interviews, surveys, or anything like that.Format: Your proposal can take the format of either a 2,000-word paper or a 15-minute presentation with recorded audio (similar to the lecture videos). Choose the format you feel allows you to best convey the information. The 2,000 words or 15 minutes should be considered minimums that exclude title and reference pages/slides. If you write a paper, please double-space and use Times New Roman 12-point font and 1-inch margins on all sides. If you do a presentation, please be sure the audio and video are clear.Components and Organization: Regardless of format, your proposal should contain the information listed below, and you should incorporate at least 7 scholarly sources. Scholarly sources include—but are not necessarily limited to—peer-reviewed journal articles, books, book chapters, and government reports. You can use other types of sources as well (like news articles), but they will not count towards your 7 scholarly ones. If you are unsure if your source would be considered scholarly, do not hesitate to ask. You should use APA formatting for all citations.I. Introduction: Introduce the topic of study and why it is worth studying.II. Literature Review: Provide an overview of the existing research surrounding the topic and demonstrate what addition the proposed study will make to theliterature.III. Methodology: Outline in detail the proposed approach to answering the question.IV. Proposed Analysis: Briefly describe the approach that would be used to analyze the data were it to be collected.V. Discussion: Discuss how your proposed study would fit into the existing literature and what the potential implications would possibly be. Discuss the limitations of the proposed study and how these might be addressed in the future.VI. References: List the citations used.Submission: Your Proposal should be uploaded to Blackboard under the Research Proposal tab in the Proposal folder. Examples of accepted file types include (but aren’t necessarily limited to) DOC, DOCX, PDF, MOV, MP4, or YouTube links.
