General
Instructions

 

As
doctoral students, your assignments are expected to follow the principles of
high-quality scientific standards and promote knowledge and understanding in
the field of public administration. You should apply a rigorous and critical
assessment of a body of theory and empirical research, articulating what is
known about the phenomenon and ways to advance research about the topic under
review. Research syntheses should identify significant variables, a systematic
and reproducible search strategy, and a clear framework for studies included in
the larger analysis.

 

Manuscripts
should not be written in first person (“I”). All material should be 12-point,
Times New Roman type, double-spaced with margins of one inch.

 

All
manuscripts should be clearly and concisely written, with technical material
set off. Please do not use jargon, slang, idioms, colloquialisms, or
bureaucratese. Use acronyms sparingly and spell them out the first time you use
them. Please do not construct acronyms from phrases you repeat frequently in
the text.

 

Structure
of Assignment Paper

 

1.     
Use
the following structure for your research article: Abstract, Introduction,
Literature Review/Theory, Methods, Results, Discussion,
and Conclusion.
Include a robust discussion section distinct from your conclusion.

 

2.     
Give
your article a Title that is both descriptive and inviting to
prospective readers. Your article title should appeal to both scholars and
practitioners. Use a shortened version of the main idea of your article in the
title.

 

 

 

3.     
Your
Abstract should inform readers what your article is about and its most
important findings. Readers, including scholars and practitioners, should be
able to understand your topic, argument, and conclusions. Make your abstract
straightforward and do not use technical language or jargon.

 

4.     
In
the Lit Review/Theory, cite only literature and theory pertinent to the
specific issue and not those that are of only tangential or general
significance. When summarizing earlier works, avoid nonessential details;
instead, emphasize pertinent findings, relevant methodological issues, and
major conclusions. Citation of relevant earlier literature is a  sign of scholarly responsibility and it is
critical for the growth of a doctoral student in public administration.

 

5.     
Methods: The Methods section “describes in
detail how the study was conducted, including conceptual and operational
definitions of the variables used in the study. Different types of studies will
rely on different methodologies; however, a complete description of the methods
used enables the reader to evaluate the appropriateness of your methods and the
reliability and the validity of your results” (APA current edition).  Include a description of your sample size and
procedure, participants, how data collected, and research design.

 

6.     
Results include data analysis used, results
of the analysis including tables and figures.

 

7.     
Discussion section includes interpretations
from the analysis. How do your analyses relate to the results found by scholars
in your lit review/theory section. In this section, evaluate and interpret their
implications, especially with respect to your original hypotheses.

 

8.     
Provide
a distinct Conclusion that tells readers what you found, why it is
important, and what difference it will make for research and practice. Ensure
you separate your discussion section from the conclusion of the article.
Synthesize your article; do not summarize it. Show readers how the pieces of
your article fit together. Answer the question “So what?” Why is your article
significant, and how is it relevant?
