Introduction, Background, and Literature Review

As we continue our written analysis, we will now use the resources we have gathered to formulate our introduction, background, and literature review sections. These areas will provide context for your problem and clarify your research approach. So be sure to consider all the different elements that impact your problem. For example, if you wanted to look at the impact of small unmanned aircraft on manned aircraft, you may want to look at FAA sighting data as well as current or proposed recommendations, regulations, safety impacts, and then the different sizes and types of unmanned aircraft and the resulting impact on manned aircraft. What that does is that provides a holistic view of the problem from everything that could potentially impact it from a regulatory standpoint to a safety standpoint.
When an industry is faced with a problem, the resolution process often involves multiple stakeholders. Before the FAA changes or updates a regulation, for example, it often solicits information and feedback from those in the industry. This allows for a thorough examination of the underlying cause for the change and the potential impact of the resolution on those who will be responsible for carrying it out.In research, this is accomplished via literature reviews. By reviewing the literature, trends rise to the surface. The elements that contribute to the problem are more easily identified, as well as potential solutions for mitigating the problem in the future. It also provides background information such as how long the problem has plagued the industry and why it is necessary to address it.Using the APA Sample Paper Template for this assignment, you will be writing the introduction, background, and literature review sections of your research paper.Review the following for the order and requirements for each section of this assignment:Title Page.Abstract (leave blank for now).Introduction: A brief overview of what you are researching, why, and an overview of your research process (including the main topics you will review). This should be approximately one paragraph.Background: Describe what led to the problem, explain the extent of the problem, and why it is necessary to research and resolve the problem. This should be 2-3 paragraphs.Literature Review: Provide historical background on the area you are researching, provide a contemporary context in which your research is situated, identify any trends in the literature related to your problem, identifies gaps in the literature, draw conclusions based on the literature (what we know about the problem). This should be 2-3 pages.Save your assignment using a naming convention that includes your first and last name and the activity number (or description). Do not add punctuation or special characters.
