The following research paper is the result of a broad literature review of more than 30 books, articles and websites, and the incorporation of many of my own ideas in the area of welcoming and integrating newcomers. Much of the material is not only supported by anecdotal evidence, but the findings of the paper were also confirmed and complemented by both statistical research data, as well as a field study questionnaire specifically devised to correlate with the research framework used in the literature review.

The paper is by no means designed to be an exhaustive analysis but has been kept concise for the purposes of the project.
