Permalink:
Throughout the program, you should be thinking of a research topic you would like to explore. In the capstone course (PSY-693), you will create a research proposal. To assist you in the creation of that proposal, you will decide on a research topic and begin collecting empirical studies to support the need for research. Your topic must relate to a basic social psychological principle; however it can fall into one of the applied subfields (forensic psychology, psychology of religion, industrial organization, health psychology, etc.).
For this assignment you will create your research question and at least five scholarly, peer reviewed, empirical studies, all from the past 5 to 7 years. Your articles must support the need for your research.

RESEARCH PROPOSAL
I. Research Topic, Projected Value, Documentation Style
A. The research topic I have chosen is the Japanese-American internment in concentration camps during World War II. I am currently taking a United States History class with Nancy Zens, and a research paper is required for that class. The only requirement for paper is that its topic is in the era between the Civil War and 1980. I have chosen to write about the Japanese-American internment, which occurred in the 1940s, because it interests me. In ninth grade I was in a humanities literature class and we read a work by a woman who was in a concentration camp as a young girl in California. I was ultimately shocked that the United States could do such a thing – I was also upset that in all of the nine years I had been in school I had heard NOTHING about it – as if it was on its way to removal from United States history. So, I did a small research paper on the internment my junior year in high school. I feel it is very important for all Americans to know about what our ”free” country did and why it was done. I think there is no reason at all to forget about this tremendous mistake our country made. I am sure that there are many people who have never heard about the Japanese-Americans’ internment, and it is valuable and important to know about it and learn from it. I hope to learn more about why and how a free country DID in fact imprison people – and why it did so while trying to stop another country (Germany) from interning people in concentration camps (as well as for doing other things).
B. This topic is appropriate for Writing 123 because it is informative to me and my readers. I have previously researched about this topic, but I would like to perform more in-depth, quality, college-level research and learn more about the complete situation. I feel that this will be a challenge and I will learn a wealth of information. Also, there is a wealth of information for and against the Japanese-American internment. Therefore, I can do an in-depth research of the topic using many kinds of sources, and draw logical conclusions as well as fulfill the requirements satisfactorily for this course.
C. The documentation system I have chosen is Chicago-Humanities. My topic’s subject matter is history, and historical research papers are usually written with Chicago-Humanities documentation system. I have never used this system, and so I look forward to learning and applying this style. Nancy Zens was not particular as to which system to use.
II. Leading Research Question and Hypothesis
A. The leading research Question that I propose to pursue is: ”Was Japanese-American internment during World War II right? Ethical? Justifiable? Was it the correct solution to the problem?”
B. My working hypothesis (I propose) is that the Japanese-American internment during World War II was a result of bad decisions based upon prejudices and was a major mistake for the United States – it accomplished nothing.
III. Research Strategy
A. What do I need to find out through research?
Why did the internment happen?
What drove the government to go that far?
Why were Japanese-Americans the only ones interned? Why weren’t other ”enemy races” interned?
What led to their freedom from camps?
Has the heavy discrimination stopped? If heavy discrimination against Japanese-Americans has stopped, when did it stop?
Have the former prisoners been reimbursed, apologized to, etc. for what happened to them?
What were conditions like before, during, and after internment?
Why have we as a country tried to hide or forget about what happened?
Followed by an annotated bibliography-An annotation is a summary and/or evaluation. Therefore, an annotated bibliography includes a summary and/or evaluation of each of the sources. Depending on your project or the assignment, your annotations may do one or more of the following.
• Summarize: Some annotations merely summarize the source. What are the main arguments? What is the point of this book or article? What topics are covered? If someone asked what this article/book is about, what would you say? The length of your annotations will determine how detailed your summary is.
Refer to ”Research Proposals” and follow the instructions for completing this assignment.
