This guide provides access to library resources that support RES 8200.
The purpose of this core course is to cultivate doctoral students’ scientific inquiry in social science research to ensure informed decision making grounded in empirical research. After developing an understanding of the utilization of library database applications and identifying a research problem in the workplace or field of interest in RES 8100, students will (a) refine the research problem, (b) identify a theoretical framework to investigate this problem; (b) evaluate, summarize, and critique empirical research to develop an annotated bibliography; (c) organize the research literature using a literature map; and (d) synthesize the literature into a coherent review. Additionally, students will gain an understanding of the predominant quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research designs.
