It’s time to write the 2-3-page section of your outline that incorporates your qualitative research. (Note that in some outlines, qualitative research may appear in more than one section – check your outline!) Whatever approach your outline takes, for your qualitative research, you may want to conduct an interview, hold a focus group of your own, or simply observe a particular event, meeting, or environment. To support your own findings, you should then try to include some sample qualitative research others have done. This type of information can be found in your library.
Please include the following information in this “qualitative research” section of your report:
Your chosen method(s) of qualitative research.
Your hypothesis (echoes your thesis statement)
Basic information from any research event(s) (location, time, date, participants, etc.)
Your observations from the qualitative research event(s) or report(s)
Your interpretations of your observations
How this research supports your thesis statement
If you refer to library resources, such as journals, books, etc. please include a tentative list of references in proper APA format. (If you do this as you go along, it will be much easier for you to make your Annotated Bibliography and your final References Page in the later stages of your project.)
Submit this section of your report as an attached Word document and then save it in your folder: you will incorporate it later into your completed report.
Submit your completed assignment by following the directions linked below. Please check the Course Calendar for specific due dates.
Save your assignment as a Microsoft Word document. (Mac users, please remember to append the “.docx” extension to the filename.) The name of the file should be your first initial and last name, followed by an underscore and the name of the assignment, and an underscore and the date. An example is shown below:
Topic: The hidden effects of cosmetic surgery on women
Research question: Are the associated dangers of cosmetic surgery worth the procedures?
The topic will be addressed from the definition of cosmetic surgery, the types, and conditions leading to its performance and finally the risks and effects associated with undergoing these procedures. The topic is important to me and I chose to research on it after the recently increased frequencies of botched operations. Many women often feel unfulfilled with a particular body part and end up spending so much money on corrective cosmetic surgery. Such women go into the procedure without taking into account the potential dangers that the operations could cause. Medical practitioners also give two sides of the story and advice women on the side effects of these operations. They often ignore the fact that the surgery may not turn out to be as helpful and perfect the way that they intended. I am a believer that everyone is created perfectly, and we are a reflection of beauty, I, therefore, discourage cosmetic surgery and through this research paper, I hope to reach out to younger women who are currently considering such procedures.
The background information for this research will be attained from the journals, recorded experiences from victims and news articles that are related to the study topic. The materials that I would need to achieve this research would be medical journals on cosmetic surgery, testimonies from victims of botched operations, the Bible, medical websites with information about the topic and the government website about the same issue. This research is ideally both a quantitative and qualitative research. It involves the collection of data from observation, interviews, and data from accredited sources and numerical explanations from medical journals. Finally, I anticipate completing the research paper in seven days. This is to allow me to collect enough evidence and information to support my topic.
