Organize, summarize, and draw conclusions regarding the information in the primary references.
Step 4.

Step 5.

From the critical thinking in step 4, develop a specific hypothesis regarding your primary references.
Step 6.

Design a methodologically sound study to answer your specific hypothesis.

the focus of this research paper is on methodology
. Thus you should write the methodological part of the paper first. This will ensure that you have the correct focus. Once the method section is complete, write a 2-3 page introduction to your topic

The methodological section should be followed by a brief results section (just a sentence or two outlining the major statistical technique used and the main finding of your study – e.g., mean group differences or correlation). Once you report the main results, you will need a discussion/conclusion section and finally the reference section.
