Step 1 and Step 5 Draft
In the Final Interdisciplinary Research Paper Assignment, you will write about the following steps of the Interdisciplinary Research Process:
Step 1: Define the Research Problem
Step 2: Justification for Using an Interdisciplinary Approach
Step 3: Identify Relevant Disciplines
Step 5: Critically Analyze the Disciplinary Insights Into the Problem
In this assignment, you will produce a draft of two of these steps: Step 1 – Define the Research Problem and Step 5 – Critically Analyze the Disciplinary Insights Into the Problem. The draft will enable you to receive feedback from your instructor before submitting your final research paper.
This assignment requires you to include six references from different disciplines related to your research problem. At least four of the sources should be peer-reviewed articles published in the past 10 years. Remaining sources may be appropriate government, trade, web, or other publications published in the past 10 years. You may use the sources from your literature search, and you may add new sources. Please note: Your final paper must include at least eight references.
Remember that Dropbox assignments should conform to the following requirements:
Formal, academic tone with proper grammar, syntax, and punctuation
Microsoft Word or compatible format
One of the following 12-point fonts: Times New Roman, Arial, or Calibri
APA-formatted running head, page numbers, and reference page
The draft should be based on your research rather than your own ideas and opinions about the problem, and all outside information must be appropriately paraphrased, summarized, or quoted with APA in-text citations
Step 1 and 5 Draft Instructions
The Step 1 and 5 Draft should include the following elements:
1. Title Page
Include an APA-formatted title page opens in new window opens in new window with running head, page numbers, your name, assignment name, and institution.
2. Define the Research Problem (Step 1)
State the interdisciplinary research problem you are researching. The problem statement should be clear, define the scope of the problem, and include context explaining why it is important to investigate the problem. You should revise your problem statement based on the instructor’s feedback on your Research Proposal and Literature Search assignment.
3. Critically Analyze the Disciplines Insights Into the Problem (Step 5)
Your draft of Step 5 will include two parts: presenting disciplinary insights and identifying conflict and agreement between insights.
A. PRESENT DISCIPLINARY INSIGHTS
Explain each relevant discipline’s overall approach to the problem (3 pages per discipline) based on your research (discuss one discipline at a time). You must support your writing with evidence from all of your sources related to that specific discipline. Your analysis should be based on the insights produced in each of the sources from your literature search.
Read your sources carefully and look for what the author discusses as:
the scope and magnitude of the problem
causes of the problem
effects of the problem
solutions to the problem
theories related to this problem
This strategy will help you discuss each discipline’s insights about the problem. You may discuss other findings as well.
B. IDENTIFY CONFLICT AND AGREEMENT BETWEEN INSIGHTS
After presenting each discipline’s perspective on, and important insights into, the problem, summarize conflict and/or agreement between insights (approximately 200 – 300 words). Sources must be incorporated and appropriately paraphrased and cited. Refer to Chapter 12 pages 309-322 in the Introduction to Interdisciplinary Studies text for descriptions and examples of this step.
4. Reference Page
Provide an APA-formatted reference page of all sources used in your assignment. Remember that four sources must be peer-reviewed sources and the remaining two (or more) sources may be trade, government, book, or other appropriate sources. All sources should be current and published within the past 10 years.
