Research Report / Individual Project
Write a scholarly research report on a topic related to Cyber Security (see Appropriate Topics). Please see Important Notes and Document Details for detailed specifications.
The Research Report, select one of the following research areas:
i) Cyber Security and INTRANET Cloud Computing
ii) Cyber Security and EXTRANET Cloud Computing
iii) Cyber Security and Machine Learning
iv) Cyber Security and Artificial Intelligence
v) Cyber Security and Internet of Things (IoT)
vi) Cyber Security and Robotics
vii) Cyber Security and Medical Technology
· The research paper must be at least 3,500 words supported by evidence (citations from peer-reviewed sources).
· A minimum of four (4) peer-reviewed journal citations are required.
· Formatting should be double-spaced, one-inch boarders, no extra space for headings, no extra white space, no more than two levels of heading, page numbers, front and back matter).
· Extra white space use to enhance page count will negatively affect student grade.
· The research paper must only include materials derived solely from peer reviewed journals or peer reviewed conference proceedings.
· Long quotations (i.e. paragraphs) are NOT permitted. Only one quoted short sentence (less than 14 words) is permitted per page.
· Footnotes are NOT permitted.
This area provides additional details about the content of each of the needed Research Report Chapters (5). The final submission should include DETAILS of each of following:
1) Chapter 1 – Introduction
2) Chapter 2 – Literature Review
3) Chapter 3 – Methodology Specifics (comparative analysis)
4) Chapter 4 – Findings and Results
5) Chapter 5 – Conclusion and Future Recommendations
6) References – APA
Your grade will be based on adequately presenting all 5 chapters in a Master’s level manner.
Chapter 1 Introduction
In this section, present enough information about the proposed work such that the reader understands the general context or setting. It is also helpful to include a summary of how the rest of this document is organized.
1.1 Problem Statement
In this section, present a concise statement of a research-worthy problem addressed (i.e., why the work should be undertaken – don’t say required for the class). Follow the statement of the problem with a well-supported discussion of its scope and nature. The discussion of the problem should include: what the problem is, why it is a problem, how the problem evolved or developed, and the issues and events leading to the problem.
Next, include a concise definition of the goal of the work (i.e., what the work will accomplish). Aim to define a goal that is measurable.
1.3 Research Questions
Research questions are developed to help guide the authors through the literature for a given problem area. What were the open-ended questions asked and why did the student find (or not find) them adequate.
1.4 Relevance and Significance
The student should consider the following questions as they read through an article stating how the author(s) supported, or left unsupported the evidence, relevance, and significance of their research literature:
Why is there a problem? What groups or individuals are affected?
How far-ranging is the problem and how great is its impact? What’s the benefit of solving the problem?
What has been tried without success to correct the situation? Why weren’t those attempts successful? What are the consequences of not solving the problem?
How does the goal of the study address the research problem and how will the proposed study offer promise as a resolution to the problem?
How will the research add to the knowledge base?
What is the potential for generalization of the results?
What is the potential for original work?
1.5 Barriers and Issues
In these paragraphs, identify how the problem is inherently difficult to solve. How did the solution the author(s) propose address the difficulties?
2 Chapter 2 Literature Review
In this section, it is important to clearly identify the major areas on which the student will need to focus the student research in order to build a solid foundation for the study in the existing body of knowledge. The literature review is the presentation of quality literature in a particular field that serves as the foundation and justification for the research problem, research questions or hypothesis, and methodology. The student will develop a more comprehensive review of the literature as part of the research.
3 Chapter 3 Approach/Methodology
This chapter includes a summary of how the student is going to proceed with the evaluation of the problem statement and associated research question(s). Given the short time of this course, a compare / contrast or advantage / disadvantage analysis is recommended
4 Chapter 4: Findings, Analysis, Synthesis
Include an objective description and analysis of the findings, results or outcomes of the research. Limit the use of charts, tables, figures to those that are needed to support the narrative. Most of these illustrations should be included as part of the Appendix.
The following topics are intended to serve as a guide:
4.1 Data analysis
4.2 Findings & discussion
Chapter 5: Conclusions
5.1 Conclusions – Clearly state the conclusions of the study based on the analysis performed and results achieved. Indicate by the evidence or logical development the extent to which the specified objectives have been accomplished. If the research has been guided by hypotheses, make a statement as to whether the data supported or rejected these hypotheses. Discuss alternative explanations for the findings, if appropriate. Delineate strengths, weaknesses, and limitations of the study.
5.2 Implications – Discuss the impact of the work on the field of study and its contributions to knowledge and professional practice. Discuss implications for future research.
5.3 Recommendations – Present recommendations for future research or for changes in research methods or theoretical concepts. As appropriate, present recommendations for changes in academic practice, professional practice, or organizational procedures, practices, and behavior.
