Option A: The first step in developing your prospectus is to search the literature related to the general area you want to investigate. In your review of recent, empirical literature, what keywords did you use in your search and what databases?
Option B: Provide at least 5-10 brief summaries of recent, scholarly (peer-reviewed) articles or government publications that support/justify a current and relevant business problem in your discipline or professional field (dissertations and doctoral studies are not peer-reviewed). Source(s) supporting your framework should be included. Include the complete, APA reference entry followed by (a) an in-text citation, (b) what they studied, (c) what they found, and (d) why this is important in relation to your study. This evidence provides the justification for your research problem. NOTE: The studies you choose should be particularly relevant to your topic, rather than general, so that you are able to provide support for your specific problem. Several should address the conceptual framework.
