Application 2: Final Paper Outline - outline of 2 pages

Final Paper: Literature Review

The final paper: literature review will be a 17-page literature review that captures relevant theories and empirical research leading to a significant research topic, problem, and research question(s). Approach your topic as though you were arguing for funding that might support a vital new step in understanding the full spectrum of issues facing the socially conscious leader. Although you do not have to actually design a study to the point of specifying research measures for being socially conscious or specify samples, try to evolve your thinking to the point of framing a relevant research topic, problem, and question(s) on which your proposed research would be focused. This question should be complete enough to suggest why the answers further develop an important theory, address a gap in a current model of leadership, or demonstrate an immediate application for solving common organizational problems. Rather than attempting to include as many references as possible, try to emphasize the logical coherence of your evidence of conceptual foundations. Build a rhetorical argument for why your research problem and question(s) are important. An obvious extension of your paper would be to use it as a springboard for a dissertation proposal. Your paper could also be useful for potential use in the development of Chapter 2 of your Proposal/Dissertation.

Your literature review paper should include the following elements:

  • Adherence to APA format (6th edition), which requires a title page, an abstract, a reference list, and appropriate sections and their headings.
  • A thorough review of the literature that shows evidence of a potential research opportunity/gap.
  • Presentation of a clearly defined gap in the research, with a focus on what has and has not been discussed in the academic literature.
  • The definition of a viable topic for dissertation research (using the aforementioned identified gap as a basis).
  • A draft problem statement included in your conclusion section.
  • At least one research question that is demonstrably linked to your problem statement. You do not need to address any hypotheses or design considerations and should include this question in your conclusion section.

With this in mind, prepare and submit an outline of 2 pages to your Instructor, who will reply with feedback and suggestions for you to integrate into the 17-page literature review final paper to be submitted at the end of the course. A sample from the previous course is attached herewith.
