Application of Research methods in Professional settings.

Write an 8-10 page APA formatted paper selecting an applied research method and developing a conceptual framework for your professional area of specialization (e.g., Education, Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy, Health Sciences Administration, Media Psychology, For-Profit or Non-For-profit organizations etc.). This assignment will require at least 5-6 published research articles in the reference page. In your paper, please address the following: • • • Define at least one research question, issue, and/or problem you plan to address in your dissertation for a topic or area of interest. Discuss a specific applied research method that you can use for your topic or area of interest. Explain how the method you selected can be successfully implemented in your target organization or your professional area of specialization and briefly discuss why you selected the variables. Discuss the article/literature you found to build on (e.g., “future research in Doe (2013), states that service research has a gap in area A. My plan is to build on that research to discover X, because it contributes to Y.”) In other words, be specific about your theoretical framework and how you built it. The paper is to be double-spaced using a 12-point font using the APA (American Psychological Association) formatting style. Include a title page and a reference page
