Limitations of the study-Unfortunatly, all research papers have a limitation to their studies. Some of the limits I may come across is, lack of information, lack of respectable and trusted articles or books.
These two will be my biggest concern when writing this paper. The way I plan to try and overcome this obstacle is by gathering all the information I have before hand, and understand the limitations I may occur before I begin writing my paper. This way, I will know my limits while writing my paper and not overstep my boundaries. Another limitation may be that in some aspects of my research, I may lack the knowledge of something or may come across a part in my research or writing where I am stuck.
I can overcome this by consulting with my professor for help. Review of literature-Some of the information and literature I will be using is books, scholarly articles and the internet as well as my own knowledge. I will try and manage my information in-between the books and the scholarly articles. I will use the internet, but preferably as least as possible.
For the most part, I will refer to my books for most of the information and any scholarly opinions will refer to articles from well respected political scientists. The internet will also provide adequate information, but in some cases the information may be questionable since many resources and internet pages have false factual information. Methodology-I will analyze the methods that I will be using in writing this research paper. I will use the literature I have at hand as well as my own general knowledge of the subject. I will have a number of means and techniques when I write this paper.
When I write this paper, I will refer to my notes, literature as well as my proposal and outline to help me organize myself. I will use, side notes in my paper as well as a “terms” section that will outline terms that the reader may need a broader understanding of as well as the explanation of abbreviations. I will have a separate bibliography page. .
