Individual Project. 3-4 pages in length, typed, double-spaced. Please make sure your full name, the class number, and “Research Proposal 1” appear at the top of the page (nothing else). This proposal should be 3-4 pages in length (not including references). It should be in APA style. In general, this proposal should have two components: (1) A literature review of relevant research in an area that is of interest to you, summarized and leading to…(2) a research question you wish to ask and why you wish to ask it (based on the gaps in the literature you have reviewed). This will require you to do a brief literature review of a research area that is of interest to you that includes a comprehensive search of the literature on a topic of interest, using PubMed, PsycInfo, or Web of Science, acquiring and summarizing the literature using references where appropriate, explaining what is known in the area, describing your research question, and explaining why your research question addresses an issue that is unknown or unclear currently in the literature. (3) State in broad terms how you plan to ask and answer the question in research terms using all the knowledge you have learned in the course to date. Do NOT include an abstract. The plan is to discuss these in class if we have the time.
