Submit a proposed research methods/methodology chapter for your research project. This Chapter 3 Methodology submission should be added to your previously submitted Chapter 2 Review of the Relevant Literature. Consider using the MSM Capstone Template and simply insert the appropriate chapter sections so that you will be well on your way to producing a completed proposal. As with the literature review, all outside sources should be cited properly and be represented with a complete reference listing in the list of references (attached with your submission). Everything (i.e., literature review, research methodology, list of references) must adhere to the MSM Capstone Guide requirements and APA style guidelines.
Note: There are no fixed rules that cover the length or depth of the research methodology chapter of your proposal. The purpose of this section is for you to describe the research methodology you selected and to explain how and why it is appropriate for your proposed research. In this section you must specifically justify why you selected the particular approach by explaining why it is the most appropriate way to address your subject. Also since this is part of the proposal, it should be written in the future tense.
Finally, remember that this section must be written in enough detail so that another researcher might be able to take your work and exactly duplicate your research findings. The bottom line is this: Be very detailed in describing the methodology and procedures of your proposed study! Your instructor will be looking for this!
