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.
Research paper--the very words send chills down the spines of students everywhere. If you are a student, research papers are a reality of life and something you will 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.
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.
Every good research paper begins with a good topic or idea. If possible, pick something that you are 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 are not able to find information from various sources.
