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.
The author can also write the steps in doing the assignment, the recommended reference tools for the research paper. The author can also include details about how to go about beginning to finding articles about the literature in the paper. The author can include a bibliography citing the reference articles. One can make use of a first search, which is used for searching the Web.
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.
Choosing a topic is also important. While sometimes the student can choose from a list of suggested topics, he may also be allowed to choose one of his own. Choosing a topic itself requires some research to be aware of the existing knowledge in that subject and to be aware of the gaps that one can fill with research. The topic can also be fluid and change as the research progresses.
