Methodology: This assignment is to prepare you to complete your research proposal. Read chapter 17 before you begin to do this assignment. You are to include every step, in chronological order that you anticipate doing in your study. Begin with identifying the scholarly data sources that you plan to use (EBSCO, Psyc Info, etc.) (You must use at least 3 different ones. Again, contact Mrs. Beverly Charlot with questions regarding e-reserves). Next identify the key words you will use. Next identify the number of abstracts you expect to review, the number you think you will eliminate and the number you think will keep with an explanation for each decision. (You must review at least 20 abstracts). Next, identify the number of full articles you think you will read, the number you think you will eliminate and the number you think you will keep with an explanation for each decision. (You must review at least 10 full articles and include no less than 4 and no more than 6 full articles in your final research report next semester). Next, explain how you plan to analyze each article (for example Coding in Content Analysis: manifest and latent content coding) and the counting and record keeping you plan to use. Next, explain how you plan to report your results or findings. Finally, state how you plan to handle your discussion section in which you are expected to critically analyze your findings, evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your study’s methodology, and provide implications for social work practice, policy and future research.
Pages-4 to 6; and 4 to 6 sources must be cited in the text and placed in the references.
