Paper 2 – 300 points – You will select a research problem (it can be, and typically should be, the same topic as Paper 1), prepare and turn in a prospectus indicating the background of the problem, the problem statement, the purpose of the study, the study’s hypothesis(es), the methodology to be employed in the study, and a review of the literature (this can be from Paper 1 as long as you use the same topic) pertaining to the problem. You most likely will develop a questionnaire to be used to solve your problem. In a Prospectus, you will devise a research plan that will explain your ideas in a structured format for your analysis – You will do everything except collect the data.
Research Paper 2
Your paper must be submitted to Turnitin.com before submitting it to the Dropbox for grading.As a timesaver, it is strongly recommended that you build on the topic you chose for Paper 1.
Assignment: Select a topic for your paper and get approval of your topic from your instructorInclude the following parts in your paper: Title page, Table of Contents, Abstract, Introduction, Review of Related Literature (you may use the literature review from Paper 1 if Paper 2 addresses the same topic), Methodology, Findings, Summary, References, and Appendix.

NOTE: In Paper 2, you will design a research plan but you will NOT collect the data. Even though you will NOT be collecting data for Paper 2, you should be aware of the following research procedure strictly followed by the university:
RESEARCH STUDIES / HUMAN SUBJECTS (Procedure A15.02)
Texas A&M University-Commerce recognizes the need for investigation in which human beings may serve as research subjects. The University acknowledges and accepts its responsibilities for ensuring that the privacy, safety, health, and welfare of such subjects are adequately protected. All research, which involves any form of participation of human subjects, qualifies as human subject research. This includes certain survey research, research by students as well as by faculty and staff and both internally and externally funded research.
In order to comply with federal regulations as well as to conform to guidelines of the University’s Institutional Review Board (IRB), the principal investigator should obtain approval of their research protocol from the IRB prior to any contact with human subjects.
If you are using humans in any of your research, contact your professor before proceeding with the research project. A determination will be made as to the need for IRB review and approval.
Specific Information for Paper 2
Note 1: Even though you will NOT be implementing the research plan you design in Paper 2 prior to writing your paper, your plan must be a realistic plan that you personally have the knowledge and resources to implement upon request.
Note 2: Your Paper 2 research plan must be based on survey research. You will be expected to develop a brief survey instrument and outline a realistic plan for its use that you personally have the knowledge and resources to implement.
The grade for the Paper 2 will be based on content, organization, and format. In addition, use formal language (3rd person and present-forward tense).
An abstract is a brief summary of your study (150 – 250 words, one paragraph, no paragraph indent). A good abstract is accurate, non-evaluative, coherent and readable, and concise.
Note: Even if your topic for Paper 2 is the same as your topic for Paper 2, your abstract will not be the same. In Paper 1, your abstract provided a summary of the related literature. In Paper 2, your abstract must provide a summary of your proposed study.
• Background — What led you to address this problem? Why are you interested in this problem?
This Review of Related Literature section should contain a synthesis of scholarly and peer-reviewed literature on your topic. It should provide evidence as to what types of studies have been conducted in relation to your research problem and further confirm the need for you to conduct your proposed study – meaning, this not a problem that has already been solved, but one needing more research and/or ideas for research. A review of the literature should incorporate several studies summarized in your own words and with proper APA citation within the text. For example–A study conducted by Woodstock and Brown (2006) determined that dog owners are extremely appreciative of the loyalty displayed by canines. Other studies, (Scooby, 2005; Yogi, 2006) concluded similar findings.
• Use APA formatting for appendix titles.
