RES 531 WEEK 3 ASSIGNMENT 2 CONTEXT OF THE PROBLEM
“The Context of the Problem sets up the research statement with background, purpose, and perhaps some support from the literature or acceptable literature alternatives. It is here that the DRP problem or issue is discussed and gives a transitory explanation of what the completed research work-product will most likely contain.” DRP Manuscript Guidebook
