An outline of the method or methods you plan to use to gather relevant data and a justification for its, or their, use;
A description as to how you will actually be able to apply those method(s);
These methods can be applied to the research topic as to getting the information is not so difficult because there are many electronic databases available so it is very easy to get the relevant literature. The college library has the easy access to get the information and all the relevant and reliable information is present there. In case of the collecting real data for outsourcing it is little bit difficult because the concern industries might not provide that information to you. For this the only plan is to prepare a simple question sheet a kind of surveys sheet. This will be a little bit typical work to get the real and correct data.
The collecting information from the Google Scholars will also be not as easy as it will require an exhaustive reading of the article and then finding the relevant literature. The getting the authors list for the relevant article is also a little bit typical work as for this first have to identified the sub topics that are related to the research topic and then find out the authors list. This authors list will help in finding out the literature from the different resources available online or from the electronic databases. In order to get the help from the concern instructor it is needed to have the basic idea of the topic because the instructors have the multiple resources in the same area.
Therefore the relevant literature can be applied to the research article by some effort and collecting the data through doing the surveys.
