Inaccuracy and Manipulation of Eyewitness Testimonies

Craft a 15-20 page research proposal that specifically discusses how you would conduct a study that uses original data collection (within the context of practical constraints). Overall, you will provide the background for the research problem in which you’re interested and how addressing it would provide a contribution to the discipline; a clear indication of your research questions; a statement about your inquiry approach, philosophical assumptions, and aims; a thorough discussion of your research design and plan (e.g., selective literature review, sampling logic, data collection strategy, theoretical framework, and data analysis procedures); any anticipated problems with your strategy; and the potential implications of your study in terms of policy development, program enhancement, or theoretical contributions.
The Big Picture

Describe and analyze an original research proposal. Why is this criminological topic important? How do you know? What does the literature review tell you about the social phenomenon you studied? How do your research questions connect to previous scholarly studies and research about your topic?
