One of the common writing assignments among college and university students is a research paper. Students need to study the topic in detail to provide a coherent research. The first stage of research paper preparation includes the search of relevant material related to the topic questions. At the second stage, a student draws the outline of the paper, which should discuss and logically open the main statement of the research. As a rule, the main body contains theoretical basis and practical part. Theories should be confirmed in real life. It means that each question theoretically discussed must have its practical evidences.
Perfectly structured main body of the paper is a half success, but introduction and conclusion are also very important parts. An introduction should give the general notion about the research, what questions will be asked and what problems will be discussed, what methods to undertake to do a deep research and how they will lead to the right conclusions. Conclusion should demonstrate the answers to the research questions listed in the introduction.
It is important to meet all requirements of formatting style specified by your instructor and do not forget to use scientific language and style.
Writing a research paper can be a very absorbing assignment if a student is able to manage his/her time and choose the right approach to the material filtration. In many cases, a research paper shows the ability of a student to think logically and construct carefully selected and exceptionally sophisticated material.
