Tips on Writing a Research Paper
Reviewing some tips on writing a research paper helps to make one of the toughest types of papers easier to write. Students tend to have difficulties with research papers because they are often more involved than other types of writing, and they often require a firm argument to be written.

Tips on Writing a Research Paper


Before writing a research paper, you absolutely must create an outline. You should have a strong, firm thesis, and multiple body paragraphs that assert and support your thesis. In addition to helping you stay organized, creating an outline will also help to filter out any unncessary information. For example, if you just start trying to write about every single aspect that is in someway related to your research topic, then you will quickly become overwhelmed. However, if you have an outline, you will already be on a path to clarity and conciseness.

Gather Research First

Do not try and insert research after you have already written the bulk of your paper. Gather the research that you will need first. Doing so will prevent unnecessary interruptions. You will not have to stop and go search for research that supports your claims. The research will already be there, in your outline, ready for you to utilize.

Furthermore, what happens if you write an entire paper only to find that a) there is no research on it or b) all of the research disagrees with everything you have written? Then you are in a lot of trouble, because you're going to have to start writing your paper all over again.


As suggested by the preceding paragraph, your research paper will have to include references, resources, and research. Therefore, you will be using citations in your paper. These can include regular quotations, paraphrasing, block quotations, graphs, statistical data, and any other sort of information that you get from another resource. In order to avoid plagariasm issues, all of this information must be properly cited. You also must create a Works Cited page. Consulting a grammar guide will help you, if you do not know how to cite.

Furthermore, you must find out which citation style is necessary for the paper. Some instructors and courses will require MLA style and others will require APA style. Of course there are other formats, such as AP (Associated Press) and Chicago; however, MLA and APA tend to be the most popular in shcools. In any case, check with your instructor for details.


Reviewing tips for writing a research paper is extremely conducive to honing your research paper writing skills. However, you must also practice writing on a consistent basis. Additionally, check with your teacher for specific instructions regarding your research paper. He or she might have a preselected topic, or certain resources that you must include. Checking on these issues is crucial to writing a paper that is up to the class standards.
