· Statement of the problem or general research question and context leading to a clear statement of the specific research question.

· Background and contextual material justifying why we should study this case or topic.

· Purpose statement.

Literature Review. Reviews the literature on a specific research question. The literature review focuses on discussing how other researchers have addressed the same of similar research questions. It introduces the study and places in larger context that includes a discussion of why it is important to study this case). It provides current state of our accumulated knowledge as it relates to your specific research question.

· Summarize the general state of the literature (cumulative knowledge base) on the specific research question.

E.g. Study 1—summarize to include researcher’s findings, how those findings were obtained, and evaluation of biases in the findings.

Study 2— summarize to include researcher’s findings, how those findings were obtained, and evaluation of biases in the findings.
