Draft Research Paper

 

Scenario

You are a first-year graduate student. You are taking a graduate course on research and writing. In this assignment, your professor has asked you to write the introduction section of a research paper for a research question/problem in which you are interested.

Instructions

Write the introduction section of a research paper for your professor. This section should:

  • Clearly identify the research question/problem.
  • Pique the readers interest in your research paper.
  • Analyze why the research question/problem is important by reviewing studies that have addressed the question/problem. Summarize groups of studies, not necessarily individual ones. The studies that you cite should be recent, published in the last 5-10 years. Older studies may be cited if they have been widely referenced by others.
  • Evaluate the deficiencies/gaps in the studies.
  • Explain how your research paper will address the deficiencies/gaps of past studies and how it will contribute to the scholarly research.
  • Explain what you expect to find by performing research on this question.
  • What benefits will the findings have and on whom?
  • Establish the purpose and the thesis of your research paper.
