Develop a research proposal on a topic in the field of interpersonal communication. Writing the on the same
topic that you used for the annotated bibliography assignment is recommended. The research proposal is to
review literature on the topic and to include the formal development of 3 hypotheses and or 3 research
questions (3 combined). This includes a logical written justification for each hypothesis or research question.
The justification explains the potential value of seeking answers to the research questions or hypotheses.
Research questions are descriptive; hypotheses are predictive. The assignment does not include data
collection.
When it comes to developing research questions or hypotheses, it would be useful to identify gaps in the
research literature (something not covered), make an attempt to resolve contradictions (articles reviewed that
have conflicting findings), or address methodological issues (measurement, procedures or samples).
Supporting rationale for the research questions or hypotheses should fall within legal and ethical boundaries of
social science research.
More specific assignment requirements include the citation of 10 or more academic journal articles, which can
include the 5 articles from the annotated bibliography assignment (all 10 must be empirical academic research
journal articles; no books, conference papers, or theoretical essays). At least 3 of your sources must have been
published within the last 5 years. All 10 sources should be cited within the text of the paper. Do not cite a
source unless you have read the article. Submit the paper on Canvas in APA or MLA style sheet. The paper
should be 1500-2000 words in length (excluding reference section). Include a title page which identifies the
title of your proposal, your name, and the name of your institution (Saginaw Valley State University) as well
as a complete reference page that provides full citation information for all 10 articles.
