Qualitative researchers produce a research protocol and a research script. The research protocol is the template the researcher uses to conduct the research and ensures that all aspects of the research have been covered. The research script is the actual data collection tool that includes the interview questions.
Create a research protocol (minimum of 1,750 words) using the problem you identified in your Week 3 paper. Your protocol will outline the steps needed to do the research and to collect data.
Explain the rationale for these steps.
Address ethical issues and any limitations to your study.
Use the Research Protocol Template as a guide for your research protocol.
