The full final paper needs to be formatted in the following manner/contain the following requisite support:
Size 12 Times New Roman font
Minimum 13 pages of content (i.e. 13 pages minimum plus references)
1” margins all around
Double-spaced
A uniformly applied citation method (both in-text and in the references list)
You can use ASA, APA, MLA, etc.
A minimum of 14 resources
12 of these resources must be from academic peer-reviewed resources
2 of these resources can come from a non-academic (though trustworthy) resource. These are especially useful for your introduction
For the final project, you’re going to use some data you collect:
If you’re doing interviews, you should aim for at least 3 interviews
If you’re doing visual, you should aim for at variety of images to compare/investigate. No fewer than 20.
If you’re using content (say editorials, papers, etc.), you’ll need quite a few. No fewer than 10.
To that end, the Final Paper contains the following, required items:
Introduction
Literature Review
Method
Findings
Conclusion
References (this section is not included in the 12 page minimum)
Each of these components break down as follows:
Introduction
The introduction will serve to introduce the topic and idea to your audience (i.e. me). In this case, you need to construct an introduction that motivates an interest in the topic as well as introduces the basic necessities of understanding to your reader. To that end, your introduction should focus primarily on your issue of interest (the pay gap, for example).
Make sure there is a clear thesis of what your overall paper is as well as the research question you’re attempting to answer.
It should give some insight into the components that underlie that issue (define it, give a bit of history on it, and also present basic statistics for it, which you can obtain through places like newspaper articles or research organizations like Pew).
Remember: the introduction motivates the reader to want to know more, so it needs to stay focused on the issue that you want to address. If you have an annual review article, it can give you some great basic details for your introduction.
As such, you should enter in with a specific claim or point. Don’t go so broad as “Since the beginning of time” because… no. Rather, you want it to be something that is clear and direct. “Determining why people buy what they buy has been a core concern of economic theorizing.” Note the differences. From there, you would want some general, broader points such as “Americans spend approximately ### billion dollars a year on grocery shopping” or something else that is tied into your specific claims and topic. Obviously, make sure you cite these claims. Work down in this fashion allows your introduction to go from your broader point/interest down into the specific manifestations of what you’ll be arguing, which thesis will explicitly articulate.
Literature Review
For your literature review, you must use a minimum of 12 peer-reviewed, academic research articles (plus the 2 non-academic but trustworthy sources). The literature review serves to fine tune your point further and helps you to focus on where you are most specifically interested, namely the key concepts, factors, and variables that you think influence the problem you are trying to understand.
You need to work through your idea here about what you identify as happening. This works to take what you’re interested in and give insight into how it’s complex. So, make sure your literature review discusses what influences you’re interested.
For example, say you were interested in the voting behaviors of people. Your literature review would note what influences people to vote and why. So, you’d most likely have some discussion of how and why race influences voter preference, as well as some discussion of some things like gender, income, etc. That way your reader understands the complexity of the issue, but keep in mind your major focus.
For this section, you’re welcome to break it down into subsections. For example, if you’re doing a study of food consumption patterns and the changing nature of diets being influenced by pop culture, you could have subsections regarding vegetarianism/veganism, gluten-free, paleo, etc. (Or, if you’re more interested in how food trends are mediated by demographics, you could use subsections like Racial Variation in Food Consumption, Gendered Nature of Food Consumption, etc.)
Notice how the above sections allow you to deal with a variety of information while implicitly helping you with flow: when you break things down into subsections, there should be logical consistency but a little break between them is okay (though still work to give and maintain flow).
Method
Normally, research papers have a relatively detailed section where they discuss their data collection and analysis approaches and the theoretical reasoning underlying those choices. As many of your have not had a research methods course (or, conversely, have had one that has not gone into qualitative research), you’re using this paper to accomplish two things: see what it’s like attempting to apply literature to an empirical context and see how early, exploratory approaches can help to refine and expand our approaches. This section is relatively short (approximately a paragraph to two) that discusses the following:
Which approach you took (observation, interviewing, or visual)
make sure you take the info from the lecture and the readings to substantiate and justify the choice: why is it strong/why does it work for your topic
What aspects you were primarily focused upon from your literature review (i.e. your refinement into what appears to be the most important or interesting in relation to your research question/topic)
A descriiption of the people you interviewed, a descriiption of the place(s) you observed, or what you images are/where they’re from. Here you’d also include length of time of observations, length of interviews, questions asked of interviewees, etc. You are basically describing what you did.
Findings
Work to connect what you observed/learned from interviews into the literature review. You should hit on three different factors here:
What from your interviews/images connects into the literature
What from your interviews/images differs from the literature
What from your interviews/images were you not able to identify or what was missing
Anything unique to your data that was in no was described by the literature
In essence, you’re working deductively to see whether your data matches existing theory.
Conclusion
The conclusion reiterates your main research question and the points you’re expecting to address and why. Highlight how your research fits within and is useful for the broader area you’re arguing for. Additionally, note what you can’t address in this project but make sure you present how this gets us moving forward and basis for understanding and pursuing future research. Finally, make sure to discuss some thoughts on what one should do to expand the data to better study the topic at hand.
References
In addition to using in-text citations, you must also have a references list. Use whichever citation method you want but it must be uniform!
