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.
One can check for reference at the Research Paper Series in the The Asian Meta Centre Research Paper Series, which is a forum for scholars who work on a range of diverse issues in the Asian context. Research paper research is a process that is going up the alleys. One should follow the nine major steps in writing a research paper, or if ones working on a particular step, one should click on that particular step to jump ahead in the process. It is prudent to obtain handouts and exercises on research skills and resources and the writing of research papers, prior to writing a research paper.
A research paper is a formal recording of the findings of a detailed research after evaluating of the sources of information and a critical analysis. It is not just a compilation of all the primary and secondary sources of information related to the research topic. The conclusions of the researcher and his thought process in arriving at these conclusions must be set out concisely.
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 instructors 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.
