Your discussion board question is about the research process and what are process steps involved in conducting research and then how would you apply those steps to conducting the requisite research for your various individual project assignments.  A few recommendations that I have include starting with a review of the project content requirements.  In other words… what information is required for the paper.  Second I would take a template formatted APA word document to create an outline.  Not a traditional outline but an outlined developed from headings (first level) and subheadings (second and third level) in your APA formatted paper.  Then I would fill in the “meat” of the paper with the content.  The aforementioned process will ensure that your document covers the content requirements.  This way you will not have a problem with that.  Second, I would conduct my literature review to identify what has been said/written about the specific topic. I would begin to develop my reference page (which is a list of the sources used as in-text citations in the body of the document).  Keep in mind there should not be a source on your reference page that is not in the body of your paper in the form of an in-text citation. Finally, I would draft the paper with the content framework and the references that you have identified from your research.  Ensure to paraphrase the material to manage your similarity index.  From the perspective of thinking, you want to get into the mindset of research. Vyhmeister & Robertson (2014) notes what conducting research is a highly involved process that is considered somewhat complex (p. 24). You want to ensure that you are conducting research to provide fact based information for your topic in a systematic way. The objective is to have enough information to support your assertions and know what has been said about the topic. This process will also enable you to develop what is called objective knowledge which can only be gained by having some prior knowledge of a topic (Vyhmeister & Robertson, 2014).Describe the process you plan to use to conduct research, identify findings, and develop the Comprehensive Project that is due in Unit 5.Present a brief outline indicating how you intend to organize the project deliverable.Review the processes and outlines of other students, providing objective feedback that will help strengthen the effectiveness of their efforts and the quality of the finished product.
