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.
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.
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.
Choosing a good search engine is also vital for the process of collecting material for the research paper. One can go about asking an expert for help via e-mail from relevant e-mail lists for gathering and selecting information. One should be able to evaluate information collected. A good research paper is judged by judging the authoritativeness, judging the comprehensibility, judging the relevance, and detecting any bias in the topic that has been written about.
