In the first few paragraphs of any research study, the researchers must describe their substantive topic, and make a persuasive case for its relevance to organizations, workers, society, and knowledge/theory.
Your task for the first assessment is to (1) comprehensively describe your topic of interest; (2) persuade your reader that the topic has broader impacts to orgs, workers, society, and theory; and (3) justify your specific choice of topic using the principles described in the unit’s readings.
• Use the first section (1-2 paragraphs) to describe your research topic comprehensively. Define the phenomenon of interest (and note if people seem to disagree meaningfully on the definition). Describe the phenomenon to us so your readers can understand and visualize what’s going on. Share trustworthy statistics on the prevalence and importance of the phenomenon. Tell us about what the research says are the causes or antecedents of the phenomenon, as well as the established effects of the phenomenon for people, organizations, and stakeholders. Tell us about contexts in which the phenomenon is more (or less) common.
• Use the second section (1-2 paragraphs) to explain the broader impacts of your research topic. Sell us on the importance of the topic. Show us the economic impact of the phenomenon ($$ values are always highly compelling!). Are lives at stake? How many lives might be lost because of the phenomenon? What are the impacts on people’s livelihoods and/or well-being? In what way is the topic especially timely today—how is it relevant to the big, hairy, audacious problems that face society today? Sell us on the idea and why it matters.
