QUESTION 1 DISCUSS THE SOCIAL SCIENCE APPROACH AND ITS USE IN THE FIELD OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE. YOUR RESPONSE MUST BE AT LEAST 200 WORDS IN LENGTH. QUESTION 2 EXPLAIN WHY ETHICS ARE SO IMPORTANT IN RESEARCH. YOUR RESPONSE MUST BE AT LEAST 200 WORDS IN LENGTH. QUESTION 3 THE TEXTBOOK PROVIDES SEVEN STEPS IN ITS DISCUSSION OF HOW TO CONDUCT RESEARCH. EXPLAIN EACH OF THE SEVEN STEPS. YOUR RESPONSE MUST BE AT LEAST 300 WORDS IN LENGTH. IN THIS CHAPTER, WE SHIFT FROM EXAMINING THE WHY OF SOCIAL RESEARCH TO AN OVERVIEW OF THE HOW—THE FOCUS OF THE REST OF THE BOOK. WE WILL CONSIDER HOW TO DEVELOP A QUESTION FOR SOCIAL RESEARCH AND THEN HOW TO REVIEW THE EXISTING LITERATURE ABOUT THIS QUESTION WHILE CONNECTING THE QUESTION TO SOCIAL THEORY AND, IN MANY STUDIES, FORMULATING SPECIFIC TESTABLE HYPOTHESES (SEE EXHIBIT 2.2). WE WILL THEN DISCUSS DIFFERENT SOCIAL RESEARCH STRATEGIES AND STANDARDS FOR SOCIAL RESEARCH AS A PRELUDE TO COVERING THE DETAILS ABOUT THESE STAGES IN SUBSEQUENT CHAPTERS. YOU WILL FIND MORE DETAILS IN APPENDIXES A AND B ABOUT REVIEWING THE LITERATURE. WE WILL USE THE MINNEAPOLIS EXPERIMENT AND THE RELATED RESEARCH TO ILLUSTRATE THE DIFFERENT RESEARCH STRATEGIES AND SOME OF THE RELATED TECHNIQUES. THE CHAPTER ALSO EXPANDS ON THE ROLE OF SOCIAL THEORIES IN DEVELOPING RESEARCH QUESTIONS AND GUIDING RESEARCH DECISIONS. BY THE CHAPTER’S END, YOU SHOULD BE READY TO FORMULATE A RESEARCH QUESTION, CRITIQUE PREVIOUS STUDIES THAT ADDRESSED THIS QUESTION, AND DESIGN A GENERAL STRATEGY FOR ANSWERING THE QUESTION.
