 The topic you are planning to focus on for the final project and a description of that topic: Choose a topic that is workable, reasonably simple to consider, and something of interest to you.

 A list of pertinent search terms that you plan to use to find peer-reviewed articles in Shapiro Library’s electronic databases

 A preliminary research question based on your chosen topic: It is understood that your research question will likely change and evolve as you read the literature on your topic, but it is important to have a research question to guide your reading. Keep in mind that in PSY 520, you will have to create a Qualtrics survey to test your research question using your Southern New Hampshire University PSY 510 and PSY 520 classmates as your participants, so craft your question to work within these parameters.
