The first step in developing your prospectus is to search the literature related to the general area you want to investigate (see the social problem below). In your review of the recent, empirical literature, what keywords did you search and in what databases?
Provide at least 10 brief summaries of recent, scholarly (peer-reviewed) articles within five years that support/justify a current and relevant problem in your discipline or professional field. Source(s) supporting your framework should be included. Include the complete, APA reference entry, followed by (a) an in-text citation; (b) what was studied; (c) what was found, and (d) why this research is important in relation to your study. This evidence provides the justification for your research problem.
