You are tasked with developing a written Research Prospectus and giving an in-cl

You are tasked with developing a written Research Prospectus and giving an in-class PowerPoint presentation on your prospectus based on your previously approved communications-related topic. This is the culminating (final) assignment for the course. Your work should be formatted according to APA guidelines. Your work should also be double-spaced, 12 point font, Calibri typestyle.) In addition to the components listed below, a cover page and an abstract are required along with a Works Cited page at the end of your work and in-text citations throughout your work.
A literary review on the topic has already been done, it just needs reformatted with the proper components listed below… the topic covers social media’s effect on the music industry + musician-audience relations! Sources and annotated bibliography have been provided as well.
Required Components: Introduction—Tell readers about your topic. What are interesting facts that make your topic unique and worthy of research? This section should end with a compelling research purpose statement (thesis). Citations from research centers such as Pew, periodical articles (newspapers and magazines—online and traditional), books, credible websites etc. can be cited in this section. This section should also introduce the significance of your study. (1-1 1/2pages)
Literature Review—This section of your paper should be a synthesis of the scholarly articles identified earlier in the semester for your annotated bibliography. Organize by subtopic and discuss the articles in relation to the findings (either similarities or differences) among the articles. Please note that additional articles beyond the 10 identified for the annotated bibliography can be reviewed, cited, and incorporated into this section of your work. (3-4 pages inclusive of the Theoretical Framework and Research Questions)
Theoretical Framework—The presentation of your theoretical framework should be the last section of your literature review. What theory supports the study you are proposing? What does the theory state? How is it connected to the study of your topic? Consider theories that have been explored/cited in the scholarly articles you’ve reviewed about the topic. Be sure to cite articles as appropriate. End this section with the presentation of your research questions:
Research Questions—What questions will guide your study? These are also the questions that you are aiming to answer through your study. I recommend at least two research questions. Methods—In your Methods section, you should describe in detail the selected data collection process you have chosen, and how you plan to collect the data. This constitutes your methodology. It is in this section that you identify whether you plan to use a qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods approach, and based on that approach, what type of process you will use to collect the data and conduct the study. Your methodology choice should also be supported with citations to articles that have successfully used a similar methodology. (1-1 1/2 pages)
Conclusion—Because you will not have an opportunity to conduct your study, this section should focus on the implications that you anticipate your study having. For example, what can readers expect to learn from a completed study? What will your study contribute new to the existing body of knowledge on your selected topic? What would be limitations to your study? What are opportunities for future research? (1- 1 1/2pages)
