1-page Statement of Research Problem 


As an initial part of your project for the semester, you will be asked to provide a 1-page statement of a research problem. This statement should articulate a specific, significant, and novel issue by connecting the issue to the larger theoretical and/or empirical literature. The problem statement should logically flow from the introduction and clearly and succinctly establish relevance to the larger body of literature. (90 points).

  • Peer review groups will be assigned immediately after the associated assignments are submitted; you will be assigned two peer reviews to complete before the following class period. (10 points).
