You must have a specific purpose for your research that includes the relevant disciplinary literature and theories related to the problem, issue, or phenomenon.
I CAN PROVIDE THE SOURCES
The purpose of your capstone project is to demonstrate what you have learned through secondary research of a problem, issue, or phenomenon linked to your academic discipline and the influence of interdisciplinarity thinking on your topic.
2. Create a research paper that outlines the problem, issue, or phenomenon described in your capstone proposal submitted in LIBS 390. The capstone faculty will approve or make suggestions for your work at that time.
3. You must have a specific purpose for your research that includes the relevant disciplinary literature and theories related to the problem, issue, or phenomenon.
4. Your final paper must integrate and synthesizes scholarly work that addresses your phenomenon from your disciplinary concentration or emphasis pattern.
5. Your final project must contain the findings section.
1. Students are expected to complete the following work before they start your secondary research:
a. Conceptualize and design a capstone research proposal under the direction of a primary professor.
b. In conjunction with your professor, detail the nature of the problem, issue, or
phenomenon to be investigated.
c. Begin to identify the appropriate disciplinary literature related to your problem, issue, or phenomenon under investigation with a DSU reference librarian. The librarian will help you locate the seminal discipline articles, peer-reviewed articles, and significant research findings for inclusion in the paper.
d. Complete the annotated bibliography you will use to investigate and synthesize the scholarly research literature from your discipline related to the research.
2. As you implement your project and begin work, you will:
a. Follow the outline you described in your capstone project proposal for investigating scholarly disciplinary literature.
b. Organize your Review of Literature into subheadings and summarize critical findings at the end of each subsection.
c. Work with your professor to determine how to report your main findings and conclusion based upon your secondary research project.
3. For your capstone submission, prepare your Secondary Research Report containing the following headings and subheadings:
a. Purpose: This section is where you thoroughly describe the problem, issue, or phenomenon under investigation. It provides an overview of the research and provides the purpose (explains why) this study is worth conducting (1-2 pages).
Body of Paper
b. Background of the Research: This section explains both the history and the present state of the problem and research focus. It identifies the “gap” or “need” based on a summary of the current literature. It discusses how the research will address that “gap” or “need.” (Minimum two to three paragraphs or approximately one page).
c. Review of Literature/Theoretical Foundation: This section should present the theory/theories or models(s) and explain how the problem, issue, or phenomenon under investigation relates to the theory/theories or model(s). It synthesizes and reports on the current research and theory about the problem, issue, or phenomenon under investigation (10 pages).
d. Findings section is where you report key findings and conclusions from your literature review (1-2 pages).
e. References cited using APA format in the paper (1-2) pages or more).
f. Appendices (optional) containing any other documentation related to your Secondary Research Report.
Structure and Format of the Paper: The capstone paper must include, at the minimum, the following parts:
(a) Title page
(b) Table of contents:
(c) Abstract (no more than 150 words)
(e) Background of the research
(f) Review of the literature/theoretical foundation
(h) Reference page
1. Students will complete a fifteen (15) page research paper (3,500 words minimum) on a problem, issue, or phenomenon grounded in your discipline’s research area.
2. Students are expected to use standard English and demonstrate coherent writing organization, detail support, and proper APA format documentation.
3. The paper is typed in Times New Romans or Calibri 12-point font, doubled-space with standard, one-inch margins in Microsoft Word, not PDF (use title page below).
4. The student uses writing as a means of inquiry, reflection, and expression in supporting a premise. Paraphrasing is correct, and there is no evidence of plagiarism.
5. The paper is 95% grammatically and mechanically correct.
