Building a proposal will demand you work through all the research stages explored throughout the course including: clarifying the research question; designing the research; reviewing relevant scholarly literature, data collection, preparation and examination; analyzing the data; and reporting on the research.
Using the Research Proposal: Topic Assignment that has been approved, build a comprehensive research proposal on that topic.

Explain the management research question hierarchy for the problem. Literature Review (1000-1300 words) - conduct extensive background research and support your research question with ample proof from scholarly, peer reviewed sources.credible sources and research.There is additional help on literature reviews below in the section titled Additional Help. Importance/Benefits of the Study (>250 words) – describe the explicit benefits
Research Design (>400 words) – explains the phases of the research, sampling design, participants, data collection design, instruments, procedures, ethical requirements, etc.
Nature and Form of Results (>250 words) – explain the anticipated form for the results to include the types and format of data to be presented for the expected audience.
Budget (>150 words) – summary of costs and expenses necessary to conduct the research.

The Research Proposal: Final Assignment does not require an abstract or Biblical integration.
Do not reuse work from any previous courses you have taken.
Paraphrasing vs. Plagiarism
Some students do not fully understand the difference between plagiarism and paraphrasing. Paraphrasing is when you take a source or someone else’s idea and say it in your own words. When you paraphrase, you must still give the author’s name, date, title of the source, the scholarly journal it came from, and the exact website address or book.
Due to the nature of a research proposal, you should have less than 100 words of quotation.When you directly quote a source, it must have quotation marks around the quote, or (if 40 words or more) it must be set in block quotation format. Using APA style citations provide detailed information of where you acquired the quote.
For the purpose of this academic paper, adhere to the following rules when quoting or using a source:
The literature review portion of the Research Proposal: Final Assignment must not be a series of quotations and you must explain the quotation relevance/application to your proposal. Because of this, paraphrasing is preferred to quotation since it demands an understanding of the material.You may email your instructor with any questions regarding the Research Proposal: Final Assignment.
Additional Help
Schindler’s (2019) chapter 17 provides a good orientation to all the elements of research and Schindler’s (2019) appendix a provides a solid orientation to the research proposal.
You should examine a couple published literature reviews so you can familiarize yourself with what a literature review is and how it is set up.Below are 2 published literature reviews from the Jerry Falwell Library databases that will help you understand the literature review portion of the research proposal assignment (see Resources section for links).
