stages  of  research.    Emphasis  is  given  to  generating  research  problems  from  sound  conceptual  frameworks  
and  from  reviews  of  empirical  research,  designing  methodologically  sound  and  logically  analyzed  empirical  
studies,  and  writing  research  papers  following  the  rudiments  of  good  writing  and  the  APA  publication
