Policy Analysis Unit 4
As you complete the study of validity, you should be considering how you will produce a complete research plan geared towards a homeland security, criminal justice, or emergency management issue for the final weekâ€™s assignment.
Throughout the term, you have been introduced to many concepts related to conducting social science research. By the end of the term, you must synthesize what youâ€™ve learned and produce, execute in part, and write up results of a complete research plan.
You may draw a topic from any of the illustrations used in past weeks or any topic of your choosing related to the fields of homeland security, criminal justice, or emergency management.
Choose a topic, and describe why it should be studied. What is the problem or condition you seek to consider and evaluate, and why will the results of your study matter for social science and for policy makers?
Find at least 3 external sources that address a topic relative to yours to produce a miniversion of a comprehensive literature review. Use journal articles, government documents, texts, testimony, official manuals, and other credible resources only.
Provide each sourceâ€™s bibliographic reference here in accordance with APA style guidelines.
Summarize briefly what existsâ€”or does not existâ€”in the literature review that provides a starting point for your project. This point should inform the choices you make in answering the questions below.
