                                       Abstract
     Put your abstract here: main content includes, research topic, methods used, and
     main findings (about 150 words).


Introduction

       This part is about one or two pages long. Give your reader the background of the

research (you can give your project a personal touch here. The things personally

significant lead you to do the project), your research topic and questions,



Literature Review

       This is the part to show your familiarity with the field and the ability of situating

your research question(s) in an academic context. Please follow the direction on

academic writing strictly. Otherwise your grade will suffer.



Subtitles Are Good

       You can have subtitles to map out the review.



Data and Method

       Please give a professional description of your research methodology.

Findings

       This is where you present the most important findings from your research, and

you can engage in the dialogue in the literature here. You can use graphs and tables.




                                                                                               1
         It is crucial for you to recognize that the tables published in sociological journals

are different from non-academic use of tables. Please follow the academic style closely.

Otherwise your grade will suffer. It’s absolutely NOT Okay to use tables directly from

excel or SPSS with no modifications.

                                    TABLE 1 IS ABOUT HERE.

         However, it is quite often that you may find a hard time put your graphs and

tables within one page. It is a good idea to put them all in the appendix. See examples

below.

Discussions

         In this section, you directly engage in the dialogue in the literature. Point out the

weakness of your own research and how to improve future research.

                                     TABLE 2 IS ABOUT HERE



Conclusion

         Summarize the main findings and point out the significance.




                                                                                                 2
