How to Write a Research Paper
By [http://EzineArticles.com/expert/Cristopher_Fowers/58052]Cristopher Fowers

Research paper--the very words send chills down the spines of students everywhere. If you're a student, research papers are a reality of life and something you'll be writing until your graduation day. There are some things you can do, and guidelines to follow that make writing a research paper little less painful.

Every good research paper begins with a good topic or idea. If possible, pick something that you're interested in. Writing about something you enjoy can make all the difference. Also, consider the amount of information available on the topic. A topic can be too broad or too narrow--you want a topic you can cover fully, but not something so specific you aren't able to find information from various sources.

Office, Startup, Business, Home Office

You can conduct a quick search of books, encyclopedias, magazines, the Internet and journals to get an idea of how much information you can uncover on your topic. If sources become scarce, librarians can often help; take advantage of their knowledge.

Outlining


Outlining is a good idea for anyone writing a research paper--it will help you brainstorm ideas and keep them organized so your paper flows well.

You can develop outlines based on chronological events, cause-and-effect relationship, the logic of a position or the process of accomplishing something. Most word processors have an outline feature making it easy to create and edit an outline. Or, check an MLA (Modern Language Association) Handbook for its recommended format.

Writing Your Paper


Research papers have different parts including a title page, abstract, body, conclusion and reference page. Each part has a specific purpose. This article is based on MLA documentation guidelines. Before beginning any research paper, make sure you know what style you should use and any other preferences the instructor may have.

Student, Typing, Keyboard, Text, Startup

Heading


The purpose of your title page or heading is to state the name of your paper and include other important information like your name, the instructor's name, the name of the class and the date. Unless directed otherwise, the heading should appear at the top of the first page of your paper in the left-hand margin. The title of you paper should be centered--capitalize the first and all principal words but do not underline or bold your title.

Abstract


The purpose of the abstract is to give an overview of the paper. The abstract should contain the main thoughts and ideas of the paper but not be longer than a couple of paragraphs.

Introduction


The introduction's main purpose is to introduce the research paper. This section should be captivating and incite the reader's curiosity. The introduction can vary from a few paragraphs for a short research paper (3-5 pages) to a number of pages or even a chapter for a senior project or thesis.

Startup, Start-Up, People

Body


The body of your research paper contains the majority of the information and facts. It should be the longest section of your paper. Some tips for writing a good body of a research paper are:

o Double space the entire paper including the works cited page.

o Avoid the phrases "I think" or "I feel." Because you are the author, people already know the opinions expressed are yours.

o Avoid the passive voice. For example, instead of writing "America was discovered by Christopher Columbus" write, "Christopher Columbus discovered America."

o Read your paper aloud. Do you stumble over the words? Do they flow nicely? Do the sentences sound natural? This is a great way to develop sentences and tell if you need revisions. You can also find grammatical errors by reading your paper aloud.

o Always have someone else read your paper. They will catch errors and provide useful advice.

o Use Spelling and grammar tools in your word processor.

o Avoid Plagiarism. If you use someone else's ideas, even if you rephrase them in your way, you still need to give that person credit.

o Don't Procrastinate. Good research papers take time and if you wait until the night before the paper is due, you're in for a long night of ineffective writing.

Writing, Pen, Man, Ink, Paper, Pencils

Closing


The closing of your research paper should include your final statements and sum up the paper. It shouldn't be any longer than your introduction. Many writers will refer back to the situation or story in their introduction to summarize the paper.

Works Cited/References


This section of your research paper should include all of the resources you used to gather information. It may include books, encyclopedias, magazine articles, journal articles, newspapers, and even personal interviews. Below are a few common examples of how to cite a reference:

People, Walking, City, Urban, Knapsack

Books


Authors Last Name, First Name. Book Title. Place of Publication: Publisher, Date

Article in a Monthly Magazine


Authors Last Name, First Name. "Title of Article." Name of Magazine Month. Year: Pages on which the article appears.

Website


Creator(s) of the site. Title of the site. Date of publication or latest update. Name of organization associated with the site.

One final thought--like anything, research papers become easier with practice. The more you write, the more efficient you'll become.

Do's and Don'ts of Research Paper Writing
By [http://EzineArticles.com/expert/Rohan_Magallanes/1404824]Rohan Magallanes

Writing research papers is a common part of an academic's life. Once in a while, even students are required to prepare their own papers. Research paper writing becomes an ordinary task in this way, and pretty much everyone can do it.

However, not everyone can come up with a paper that commands attention and projects credibility. One must adhere to certain rules and norms of effective research writing in order to achieve this. If you are interested in preparing a great output, take note of the following do's and don'ts of research paper writing.

Do Research Well

While only preliminary to the actual writing, research remains a significant part of the process. Without enough relevant information about your topic, you simply cannot give justice to your paper. You also cannot clearly and concisely explain certain principles in your paper without being well-versed in them. Before you proceed to write per se, make sure that you have read enough pertinent resources.

Clerk, Business, Business Woman, Busy

Don't Start Late

It is a general rule not to rush any writing job. The pressure that this entails can terribly affect the quality of the final output. In writing for research, this rule is even more crucial because research papers need a lot of preparation and deliberation. Do not start your paper lately. Instead, keep a detailed plan of activities that will organize your schedule for writing and related tasks.

Do Learn the Parts

Research papers are known for their defined sections, each having its own specific guidelines. For your own paper to be effective, you need to fully understand how to compose the content of each section. To do this, you can use other published research documents as references for your own report. As another option, you can spend time studying research writing with the use of books or online materials.

Don't Be Wordy

As a formal document, the main goal of your research paper is to present information. It should be kept short and straight to the point. Therefore, you must not be wordy when writing your paper. You should avoid lengthy phrases. Instead, find ways to express ideas in brief but meaningful statements.

Student, Typing, Keyboard, Text, Woman

Do Follow One Style

Another major rule in research writing is to follow one specific style. In academic writing, several conventions are observed by academics and students. You need to choose just one for your paper. Ideally, this convention should be the one used by the institution you are affiliated with. Then you will need to learn more about this particular style and consistently apply it to your paper.

Don't Forget to Edit

As the final step, you must perform thorough editing on your own work. In doing so, be as meticulous as you can in spotting problems in structure, content, and the technical aspects of writing. These technical aspects include grammar, punctuation, and sentence construction. If you are not quite familiar with editing, there are always professional services that can do your bidding.

Written research works are so important that graduation might not be possible without submitting one. When composing a paper, remember these do's and don'ts to meet academic standards.

Get an 'A' on Your Next Research Paper With These 6 Simple Steps
By [http://EzineArticles.com/expert/Scott_Bassett/1223548]Scott Bassett

This is hands down, proven and tested, the best method you'll ever find and need, and it's all here laid out for you to use.

These aren't suggestions, tips or recommendations either: these are the necessary steps and processes you must go through to write 'A' papers consistently, no matter who you are or what your skill level may be, it's never too early or late to start using this method and seeing results. You will start benefiting from it right away. Let's go!

1. Brainstorm and Write Your Thesis, Build it Around a Claim, Premise or Idea

There's a crucial distinction to make and maintain in your mind: it's not a thesis, it's your thesis. It's yours and only yours, so the direction you take it in is your decision. Sometimes it's natural to others and sometimes not, either way, it starts with you. You need to be creative in coming up with your thesis, not just run with something because a source told you to. You need to interpret your topic in your own way and be original.

With the reading of every paper comes the natural question, "What's it all about anyway?"

That's answered by your thesis, it's your answer to that question, and you state it up front in your introduction to your reader because it's the only way it makes sense, to let them know right away to keep on reading.

Entrepreneur, Startup, Start-Up, Man

Without one you're just vague, ambiguous and nothing special. No one would have a reason to read your paper because there's no promise of learning something. With it, your specific and exacting with your thesis and statement, you're enticed to read and spark their interest and keep their attention. Staying in the active voice and sentence construction also helps achieve this effect.

 

So how do you find your thesis and go about putting it down on paper? Passion and interest. Yes, passion, and not the romantic kind but what naturally piques your interest. This isn't the only way, but it's the best way.

Laptop, Computer, Browser, Research

If you just can't find the most interesting thing or anything interesting at all, you might try doing the most applicable and easiest topic from a practical point of view. If picking a topic just because it's easy appeals to you, I'd say go for it.

Anywhere where you can get your self-interest going, even if it means doing less of things you don't like, like writing research papers, can be productive and motivates you further.

But ideally, and we don't live in an ideal world, find something about the topic that interests you; a question, a statement, a claim to prove or disprove, that way it'll be much easier for you to write something great because you'll be involved and interested in the subject and you'll have your heart in it. It's always better to interlace passion with your thesis. Make it interesting and you'll be motivated to work harder.

People, City, Person, Urban, Woman

Here are 3 of the best ways to find interest in any topic you have to write about:

1) Connect it back to your personal interests; what you already think about and are interested in, what you care about. Connect it back to you and you'll naturally, be more inclined to write about it because it's interesting to you.

2) Find a theme within your primary text and elaborate upon it. Don't expound or summarize, but make a claim and use pieces of your text to back it up with brilliant quotes and analysis. This one is my personal favorite.

3) Use what you get from classroom discussion and group brainstorming. This one is natural, but some instructors are better at organizing group debate and peer reviews, and some a lot better. If you're lucky enough to get one of the good ones, you'll be able to mingle with your like-minded peers in a classroom setting.

Achievement, Agreement, Business

These are specific methods and work in their own right, but you can also use a combination of all three.

2. Outline Your Paper into Actionable Steps, so You'll Always Know What You Have to do Next and if You're Doing the Right things

Yes, outlining. It's that thing you always know you should do and do more of but never actually get around to it.

You skip it and jump right into the writing because you figure it'll be faster that way. Writing writes the paper, not outlining, right? So if you start writing now, you'll be done quicker. What is outlining anyway? It's a waste of time and you'll shorten the whole process and make it easier on yourself if you don't do it. Right?

Wrong. Skipping outlining lengthens the writing process and assures you'll write a worse paper than you would have if you had taken 10-30 minutes to brainstorm and write one out. So take the time to write down your thesis and figure how you'll elaborate on it and prove your point.

Laptop, Apple, Macbook, Computer

It's nuanced and difficult, to define exactly how to write an outline with just a few, general, hard and fast rules. It's also very personal and depends on the individual, varying greatly from person to person, but here goes nothing anyway. This is what you need to have at the very least:

1) Your strong thesis really fleshes it out and how to best state it, figure out how it works with and fits together with your evidence.

2) Supporting arguments - flesh them out a little bit, don't write them out fully, but be specific enough so that you know exactly what you're going to say; the point you're trying to make (just one) with every supporting argument and piece of evidence.

3) How you tie it all together with your conclusion. Remember that your thesis determines the nature of your conclusion and the options it gives you to write it. Think about it beforehand, don't make the mistake of thinking about your conclusion when you get to it in your writing.

Laptop, Code, Programming, Computer

3. Research Just What You Need, and not for Hours Every day

Research is writing down precisely what sources meet the exact requirements to support your thesis, walking into the library skimming and checking out just exactly what you need to do that, and nothing more.

It's not aimless or passive browsing hoarded up with piles of books for hours on end.

There's some confusion about when to do research, and I've put it after thesis and outline. You may be wondering why.

That's because your thesis doesn't come after research for fear that research will influence and contaminate your ideas with others' opinions that will steer your own. So you'll want to do your own close reading of your text before you come up with a thesis, because a thesis is essentially you, your opinion and argument, and ideally draws from some kind of passion.

Even when this isn't the case, it's okay to change it later and you always can, but also always have one before you research, it grounds yon on what you want to do and exactly what you're looking for, which is always a good thing in all writing and research, specificity

Now, outlining and research does kind of play off each other. You can do either one before the first, but I prefer outlining because it focuses your research on what you need; you go in knowing what you're looking for.

Also understand that you don't know exactly what you're looking for when it comes to titles, but content. The direction a source takes with respect to your paper, and whether it will be helpful or not, will be readily apparent to you.

Entrepreneur, Startup, Start-Up, Man

Remember that to a great extent, there are no perfect sources, but there are better ones for supporting your thesis and fulfilling its conclusion. There are exceptions, but you shouldn't wait for or count on them.

By and large, you'll be sorting and parsing through sources quickly, skimming for quality and culling what is immediately useful to your thesis, and what ties things together like a theme or commonality between your arguments. Your goal is to present your case and convince them of its validity with evidence, so quality evidence is the prime cornerstone in that goal.

Sources should be ranked in order of immediate and potential usefulness, from where you are now, as in 1, 2 and 3 in order of most useful to least useful. Even within your best sources, you're probably only going to want to use a sliver of its contents. Don't be compelled to rely on just one resource and just use up the whole thing, you'll be repetitive and it'll make for a weaker argument.

Checklist, Goals, Box, Notebook, Pen

4. Writing on Your Time

Now and only now do you begin writing, after your thesis, outline and most of your research. I say most of your research because depending on the complexity of the assignment, you're most likely going to have to hit the books as you write and develop your ideas into reality while you're writing.

Hitting bumps and snags while writing is good because it's feedback as to how viable your ideas and your presentation of them really is, as well as peer review as we'll be discussing at the end of this article.

But writing isn't what you think it is and how you've probably been doing it.

Writing is thesis-based and centered around your thesis, much like outlining, but writing is still not outlining, they're two different mindsets. Your entire paper should be focused on elaborating and proving your thesis statement to your reader, you've got to have a plan before you start writing, and that's your outline. They're inexorably linked and your writing will improve and be easier with a better outline.

People, Girl, Woman, Office, Work, Bag

Staying focused is a very simple concept and common piece of advice, so it's surprising how even experienced writers and sometimes especially experienced writers, veer off on tangents and write about a bunch of things that have absolutely nothing to do with their thesis whatsoever. I'm guessing this is because many exceptionally skilled writers focus on crafting incredible sentences and less on organizing and structure.

Sometimes they get back to it with a clever tie-in to everything or theme and sometimes they don't. I don't recommend going that way, at least not while you're still just beginning.

Let me be clear: everything you write after the introduction of your thesis should have everything to do with your thesis; it should be immediately relevant. If you want to ignore me and go off on your own in the future fine, but while you're reading my work and taking my guidance always stay on topic. This is coming from someone who has trouble doing so.

Brick, Brick Wall, Business, Colleagues

Instead, have a logically unfolding argument in the right order, with higher priority items first. You could also put items in chronological order to explain at the beginning to start things off as a story, to more complex and/or supplementary arguments as your paper progresses.

You should plan your writing around your schedule, rather than planning your life around writing and becoming beholden to it, which is easy to do sometime, and which doesn't help your paper when you haven't planned thoroughly anyway.

1. Write in short blocks with frequent breaks. Have mini-goals within each of the blocks.

2. Have a general 2-3 hours per day, filled with those short blocks in the day, with goals you want to achieve by each block, when you've completed those goals (or run out of time), you're finished and you stop. Don't go any later than your allotted time unless you have to. Plan for it beforehand and give yourself enough time to finish your paper before the due date.

Blank, Brainstorming, Business, Company

5. Editing for the Best Possible Presentation... and Grade

The most oft-forgotten and neglected step after outlining is undoubtedly editing. Neglected is more accurate than forgotten; we all know we should edit more, but after all the work we've put in up to this point we just don't feel like it, and if we're going, to be honest with ourselves, it isn't as fun as the other steps!

We also know and tell ourselves we could have done a better job and written a better paper... if only we had edited more.

Part of the reason it's hard is that we don't know how to do it and haven't practiced sufficiently enough to make it easy. You get better at editing the more you do it, especially when you practice the tips I'm about to give you.

Editing is so much more than type checking and proofing, it's analyzing how close you were to get your message across as established in your outline, and tweaking and refining your elements to get even closer to that goal.

Startup, Business, Businessman, Notebook

It's also not hacking apart your paper and changing everything when everything doesn't just fall into place and work perfectly. Sometimes that needs to happen, like when you realize you may need to start from scratch, but doing so without re-outlining and only editing alone will make it less refined, sophisticated and more shortsighted and premature when compared to your earlier drafts.

Did you achieve the original vision you had for your paper? How did it all turn out? Let's see...

1. Outline, yet again. This is your guiding light to show you whether you achieved your goals or not. How far were you from when you initially set out to do? Did you achieve your goals and fulfill that vision?

2. Is it smooth and does it flow? Does it make sense and the best possible case given the order of its presentation? Could things have been stated better? This comes after the initial vision has been achieved.

3. Peer review for proofing, because you won't find all of your typos and errors by yourself. Trust me on this one, from someone who publishes information guides for living with embarrassing typos: have at least one other person proofread your paper. Do a variety of people so you can get opinions on what others think.

6. Checklist of all the Things a Great Paper Must Have

This one might seem even stranger than outlining and editing like it's just another redundant thing I'm making you do that has no real effect on your grade... but just trust me and take my word for it: it's absolutely crucial and necessary.

Entrepreneur, Startup, Start-Up, Man

Checklists will vary depending on the assignment, and will grow to include paper requirements and your own ideas, similar to your outline, but here's a basic one I like to provide for my readers:

1) Flexible thesis, that allows you many possible options and directions to take your writing
2) Structure of the introduction
3) Sufficient analysis for all supporting paragraphs
4) Structure of supporting arguments, the order they appear in, their flow and how they support, augment and play off of your thesis
5) Powerful conclusion

Notice how it's more purpose and idea centered and audience targeted than just saying what you think? This helps keep you on track.

Startup, Business, Businessman, Notebook

There needs to be a logical argument and flow to your paper that makes sense, priority-wise and the natural unfolding progression of your argument.

Presenting your thesis in the best way makes for the best grade. A great thesis alone, no matter how clever, unique, nuanced, in-depth and open-ended or really specific, isn't enough all by itself. You also need to capitalize on the thesis's potential to unfold into a fantastic presentation, and that involves planning with an outline and good research especially to reach its full potential.

Thanks for reading and best of success with your paper!
