The purpose of the research paper is to implement the tasks associated with each stage of an empirical political research project. The end product will be a 6-7 page paper (double-spaced, with 12-point standard Times New Roman font and one-inch margins), not including a page for reference lists (Note: Please do not add a separate cover page).
In terms of the style of the citations and references, you need to follow the style Manual for Political Science (2006) published by the American Political Science Association (APSA). This manual is available on the Canvas.
Your Paper I should contain the following components: title; introduction; literature review; hypotheses and theory; and research design (Note: For research design part, I do not expect you to explain data analysis part in detail since that will be covered after the spring break. Detailed discussion on data and variables should be added to your final paper. So, please discuss simply which research design you will adopt and why).
