The purpose of this assignment is for you to write a research proposal based on a published research paper before developing a research proposal of your own topic.

You will be assigned a research paper in a peer-reviewed journal. To find the assigned paper

You will first need to read the article carefully and thoroughly. Then assuming that you are about to conduct the research described in the paper, write a research proposal. In the research proposal, you will need to provide the background/introduction, purpose of the study, research hypotheses, data and methodology, all of which should come from the journal paper. A general outline of the research proposal is given below.

Note that you need to summarize/rephrase the corresponding contents in the paper using your own words. Directly copying from the paper is plagiarism and not acceptable. Refer to the Academic Honesty Policy for consequences of plagiarism.


The proposal should be double-spaced using Times New Roman 12 font and should not exceed 1000 words, including references and appendix, if any. You are required to follow APA style when writing the short paper. Here is a tutorial on APA style:

The writer did an incredible job on the ppt presentation this week. I am disappointed with support for the lack of communication between me and the writer which caused the paper to be late. Overall, the ppt presentation was done and the writer did a phenomenal job.
