you are required to design a line of research around an assessment of specific
cyber issue. In this case, you can select the issue that you identified in your Cyber White Paper
assignment (Assignment #1).
You are encouraged to refer to Belcher, Wendy Laura. 2009. “Editing Your Sentences” In
Writing Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks. A Guide to Academic Publishing Success. Sage. This
resource has an excellent step-by-step process for enhancing your writing.
The goal of this assignment is to present a clear research proposal. Your research proposal
should be between 5-6 pages in length not including your preliminary source list and references.
You will need to:
1) Identify a cyber incident or an international situation that contains significant cyber issue.
Assess and provide some contextual information that helps demonstrate your understanding of
the nature of the issue or case.
2) Clearly state your research question.
3) Explain why this issue is important to investigate. What can we learn from this situation? How
will the knowledge we gain through your research help our understanding of cognition,
information processing errors and/or decision-making errors?
4) Discuss your theoretical framework. Here you will summarize/synthesize some of the
theories/models and concepts you’ll use to investigate the intelligence/decision-making failures
such as consistency theory, balance theory, bolstering, groupthink and etc.
5) Discuss your research design. Your research design should discuss how you plan to carry out
your analysis.
Heath and Tynan have a short but insightful article on “Crafting a Research Proposal,” which can
be accessed at:
6) Identify a list of 8 preliminary sources, 6 of which must be from peer-reviewed journals.
These should be listed using Turabian References style formatting.
Format. Your proposal should include a title page, proposal body, reference page, and a
preliminary source list (title, references page, and source list are not included within the page
count). Your paper should have 1-inch border on all four sides, use Times New Roman-12
point font, be double spaced, and not have an extra space in between paragraphs. All references
and citations are in Chicago Turabian format.
This information is from the Master’s Capstone Manual and it should help you develop your
research proposal. Students taking the capstone option are required to submit a 5 page research
proposal prior to moving forward on their research. These are some of the sections they are
required to include within their proposal, they have been included in these instructions as they
directly relate to the goals of this assignment.
Introduction. Identifies your specific research question and sets the general context for the
• Statement of the problem and context leading to a clear statement of the specific research
• Background and contextual material justifying why we should study this case or topic.
• Purpose statement.
Theoretical Framework. The theoretical framework section develops the theories or models to
be used in the study and shows how you have developed testable research hypotheses.
• Introduction discussing gaps in the literature, how this study will help fill some of those gaps,
and justification for theory or model to be used in study.
• Summary of the theory or model to be used in the study, including a diagram of the model if
• Statement of hypotheses to be tested.
Research Design. Describes how you will test the hypothesis and carry out your analysis. It
describes the data you will use to test your hypothesis, how you will operationalize and collect
data on your variables, and the analytic methods that you will use, noting potential biases and
limitations to your research approach. It should include.
• Identification and operationalization (measurement) of variables.
• Sampling plan (i.e., study population and sampling procedures, if appropriate).
• Justification of case studies used.
• Data Collection/Sources (secondary literature, archives, interviews, surveys, etc.).
• Summary of analysis procedures (pattern-matching, etc.).
• Limitations of study and bias discussion.
Preliminary Source List. List of at least eight sources you plan to utilize within your paper, six
of which must be from the peer reviewed literature.
Reference List. Reference the works that you have cited (direct quotes or paraphrases) in the
text. This must be in the school’s prescribed format. [In INTL this means Turabian format, either
using the author-date method or the bibliography-notes method]

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
