What is a research paper?
A research paper is not a summary of your investigations or evaluation. It is a comprehensive final product of your research, organization and critical thinking. It should provoke people to have an opinion about it. It should help you grow and your research is supposed to be helpful to their people researching in the same niche. It should not be a repetition of facts or previous researches. Remember, one of the prime goals of a research paper is to add something new and valuable to the academic community.
Research papers are mainly classified into two categories
Argumentative research paper: this paper usually begins with a statement of the research paper and an important goal of the argumentative research paper is persuading other people to agree with your ideas.
An Analytical research paper on the other hand begins with a question and is rather an opinion about the topic. It is not aimed at trying to convince people to agree with your ideas.
Choosing a topic
The first step in writing a research paper is choosing the topic right for you. Understand the assignment provided to you. If your instructor has provided you with a list of topics to choose from then go with any of those topics. If this is not the case or you do not find any of the provided topics interesting or you have a better idea in your mind, then select one and discuss it with your instructor before proceeding forward.
When there are so many options, a student is bound to get confused and find difficulty in narrowing down a topic. In such cases, brainstorming and writing down your ideas on paper proves to be very helpful.
