Order Description
Research design ) The essay should detail the path you took to creating the research design discussed and presented in class. You should cover all areas discussed, from the formulation of the research question to the expected results and how they would be presented. The essay should outline these structures, and detail each stage of the research design in a critical manner and using the appropriate literature.

A research proposal with something to do with the rise of social media and cybercrime. The main hypothesis should be that they are positively correlated.
