Bibliography Purpose of Guide This guide is intended to help students organize and write a quality research paper for classes taught in the social and behavioral sciences.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the application of Geographic Information System GIS in property valuation. The study adopted descriptive research design to investigate the relationship between value of land and the factors influencing it. A population of land parcels was used with a sample size of parcels of land.
Data collection was done by use of questionnaires. A multivariate regression model was used to link the independent variables to the dependent variable. The resultant Hedonic Pricing Model HPM indicated that the value of land can be predicted by using the following key attributes; land size, accessibility to bypass, accessibility to primary school.
Results also showed that Hedonic Pricing Model is objective and verifiable and hence an ideal method of valuation. GIS technique has proved to be a powerful tool in ensuring that a geodatabase of all the attributes of each parcel of land is stored and retrievable at the clique of a button.
The valuation map that was produced enables quick decision making, as all the values of each parcel are displayed graphically. Participation is the cornerstone of citizen engagement.
In constitution making and other public policy formulation processes, public participation typically involves preparing the public to participate through civic education and public information campaigns, as well as consulting the public on issues such as how the process should take place and the contents of the constitution itself.
Gutu District is the third largest district in Masvingo province. Ward 22 is located in the communal region of Gutu central.
The people of ward 22 largely depend on subsistence farming and market gardening for their livelihoods. Over and above these objectives, the study sought to document the experiences and views of rural Zimbabwean women on the constitution making process.
This study adopted a descriptive case study research design. Samples of women from Ward 22, Gutu District, were conveniently selected to participate in this study. Data was collected using a structured interview guide and questionnaires which were administered to the respondents.
A focused group discussion was also carried out to verify the information gathered through these instruments. Findings and conclusions were derived by means of detailed comparative and inductive analysis of data. Descriptive statistics were employed in the presentation of the findings.
Amongst the major findings are that rural women in ward 22 in Gutu district were in actual fact well informed on the contents of the constitution and could cite the benefits for women as provided for by the new framework.
This is despite the fact that a large proportion of the respondents had not seen or read any part of the constitution.
So contrary to popular perception and findings of other studies carried out post the referendum, rural women actually voted in the referendum from an informed position rather than mere acquiescence and conformity as previously suggested.
The study also revealed that women understood the importance of their participation in the referendum and saw the value of constitutional reform. The study confirmed that there was a lack of print media particularly in relation to dissemination of the actual printed copies of the draft constitution.
On the basis of the conclusions drawn from the study, the following recommendations are made;There is need to continue raising awareness on the New constitution beyond merely encouraging its acceptance by word of mouth but by actually distributing copies of the constitution document to women in rural areas.
The power in dialogue and word of mouth should be harnessed to mobilise women for action around issues that affect them, for example, through workshops and discussions.
My research will focus on some of the more pertinent changes that need to take place on a societal level in order to better serve disabled people and allow them to participate in all facets of community life. I will argue that three of the most significant changes that must take place include: The changes, which I support, will be presented in a research-driven paper.
I will highlight the current UK disability laws in place and point out some of their shortcomings. Then, I will explore the worldview of society, as a whole, as it pertains to disabled peoples, and suggest changes that need to take place and how educators can help facilitate these changes.
Finally, I will explain the shortcomings of the most common definitions used for disability and disabled persons and offer alternatives that incorporate a broader range of people and ailments.
My audience will be any citizen whose political jurisdiction is under the UK disability mandate, although, anyone, from any society, would benefit from reading my paper due to the universality of this topic. With the aim of designing and implementing a web-based article submission management system for academic research papers, several international models such as Elsevier Editorial System and ICOCI, International Conference on Computing and Informatics, are studied and analyzed.
Through this analysis, an open access web-based article submission and peer review system for Journal of University of Zakho JUOZ is employed. This kind of systems is not only capable of solving issues such as complex manuscript management, time-delays in the process of reviewing, and loss of manuscripts that occurs often in off-line paper submission and review processes, but also is capable to build the foundation for e-journal publications.
Consequently, an active and rapid scholarly communication medium can be made. The implementation and deployment of this system can improve the rank of the university and the reputation and the globalization of science and technology research journals.Edit Article How to Write an Outline for a Research Paper.
