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.
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.
Students who go in for higher studies will, in most likelihood encounter the need to write and submit a research paper.

Writing a research paper can be a good learning experience and a rewarding one. Here are some tips on going about writing a research paper.
A research paper can be an argumentative one or an analytical one. An argumentative paper takes a particular proposition - for example, is a high rate of tax good? - And sets out in detail the pros and cons of the proposition. The author may arrive at a conclusion or leave it open after setting out both sides of the case in detail. An analytical paper evaluates all the sources of information, considers existing propositions or interpretations on the subject and offers the authors own interpretation.
