Research Proposal Part 2

You are to write a review of the existing literature for your chosen topic utilizing at least fifteen academic peer-reviewed papers, preferably from scholarly journals.  You will focus on describing the results of each of the studies reviewed and narrowing down the theoretical framework driving the study.

You will then relate it to your own study by determining whether or not the article agrees with your hypothesis and the specific circumstances of your study by which you expect a similar or a different result.

Furthermore, you will use the literature to identify other variables that have significant explanatory power in addition to those that you have chosen as your main independent and dependent variables to discuss further.
