USE HEADINGS FOR EACH OF THE FOLLOWING SECTIONS:
INTRODUCTION (1 Paragraph):
Identify the general topic that you are investigating, explain why it is relevant to the field of criminal justice or to the administration of justice, provide a brief overview of your academic research, and identify the research question that you will address through original research in CRIM 480.
LITERATURE REVIEW SUMMARY (4-5 paragraphs):
Provide a brief summary of 4-5 academic or scholarly sources addressing your general topic. Do not use Web sites. You should address one source at a time. For each source: introduce the source, provide a brief overview of the research and main points addressed in that source, and explain how this source will be useful for your project. Note that this is not intended to be a synthesized essay on your topic. Although this literature review cannot be comprehensive, it should provide a brief overview of the current state of research on your topic. This summary will be expanded in your CRIM 480 research project. All references must include in-text citations.
RESEARCH QUESTION AND METHODOLOGY (1-2 paragraphs)
Research Question: Apply your general topic to your agency in a single, open-ended research question. This Question will guide your original interview research during CRIM 480.

Explain how you will choose 4-6 professionals to serve as your research subjects, and how you will design interview questions to collect relevant data from these professionals regarding your research question. Your methodology may also include analysis of other relevant statistical data, but such data may not replace the personal interviews and you must explain the relevancy of any alternative data.
INTERVIEW QUESTIONS (List)
Include 3-4 sample questions that you intend to ask your research subjects. These should be thoughtful questions that probe the expertise of professionals in your agency and should be listed in bullet format.
LIMITATIONS (1 paragraph)
Any reputable research discloses the underlying limitations of that research. You should describe the factors that limit the reliability of your conclusions, or the degree to which your findings could be generalized to a wider population. Include factors such as the limited scope of your literature review, your small sample size, and possible bias.
CONCLUSION (1 paragraph)
Summarize your general topic and your research question, and discuss the results that you expect to obtain.
LIST OF REFERENCES AND CITATIONS
All papers must include a separate List of References or Bibliography in APA format. You must also pay strict attention to the use of proper in-text citations throughout the paper.
