First, you will need to submit a research proposal (about three pages long) on a topic in
Philippine Politics. Your topic should address issues confronting the current or recent
political situation in the Philippines. In your proposal, you need to specify what the topic is
about (what is your research question?), why the topic is important (i.e. why should people
know more about it), and how you plan to find answers your research question (i.e.
annotated bibliography with at least five sources). Your initial research proposal must be
submitted on Canvas by 10-3-22 (by 11:59 pm). If your initial proposal is accepted, no
further action is necessary, and you can proceed with your research project. Student
proposals that require revisions must be resubmitted on Canvas by 10-6-22 (by 11:59 pm).
Approved (initial or once-revised) proposals that are submitted on time will receive full
credit. Research proposals that require more than one revision may receive point
deductions. Late submissions of proposal drafts are subject up to a 6-point deduction).
Students can proceed with their research once their proposal has been approved by me.
Changes to your approved research proposal after the deadline must be approved by me,
(otherwise your research paper will be subject up to a 20-point deduction). You may NOT
write your paper on a topic that was not previously approved by me (i.e. as stated in your
approved written proposal).
Then, you will need to submit your completed research paper. The text portion of your
paper should be at least 20 pages in length, double-spaced, with one-inch margins and 12-
point font. You have the option of which writing format (i.e., MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.) to use
for in-text citations and the selected reference page. You are required to include a cover
page, in-text citations, and a bibliography with your final paper. All paper assignments are
due by 12-9-22 (by 11:59 pm); early submissions will be accepted (even encouraged).
There is the research proposal uploaded in the files thank you!
