Which one if more effective? Is it due to influence, location, educational setting etc. Can add more to this ^ there must find a gap in knowledge Abstract (250 words or less) State your research question Explain how this research question speaks to a larger theoretical puzzle or gap in the literature Describe the data that you use to answer your research question State what you find Describe what these findings suggest about the answer to your research question Explain why these findings are important Introduction (3 paragraphs) Describe the puzzle or gap in the literature that you will address with your data What do we know? What do we not know (or not know well enough)? What does the existing research suggest might be the answer to that unanswered question? Identify your research question and explain how you answer it What question will you answer? (Or what hypothesis will you test?) What data will you use to answer this question? (Or test this hypothesis?) What do you find? Explain the importance of your findings What is the answer to your research question? How does this answer broaden, clarify, or challenge existing knowledge/theories? Justification (1,000 words or less) Restate the puzzle or gap in the literature that you will address Explain why this puzzle or gap is important to address Describe (in more detail than in the intro) what we know about this topic/issue Describe (in more detail than in the intro) what we do not know about this topic/issue State your research question (i.e., “In light of these lingering questions, I seek to examine…”) Explain how your research question solves the puzzle or fills the gap in the literature (i.e., “Answering this question allows me to…”) *Note: The point of a literature review is not actually to review all of the relevant literature.

A clear structure (with topic sentences and transitions) is very important for writing an analysis that meets this goal. Discussion/Conclusion (1,000 words or less) Summarize your findings Remind readers of the puzzle/gap in the literature that you are trying to solve Remind readers of the specific research question that you have answered Briefly review what you found Briefly explain what these findings imply about the answer to your research question Discuss the implications of your findings Explain how your findings solve the puzzle or fill the gap in the literature Explain how the resolution of this gap/puzzle helps to clarify, challenge, or expand existing knowledge or theory Using existing literature, explain why your findings are or are not surprising Identify possible explanations for your findings Use existing research to discuss the most likely explanation for your findings Consider alternative explanations for your findings and explain (using your data and/or other research) why these alternative explanations do or do not seem plausible Conclude by reviewing why these findings (and the larger puzzle/gap they address) are important
