Writing a College Research Paper

Oct 13, 2010 Filed under:Research paper writing guide — admin @ 6:10 am

Writing research papers is an inalienable part of the academic life. You are not just taught some new things but you are taught to study by yourself in a college or in a high school. The best way to get such skills is writing a research paper. If you are a college student, it may be difficult for you to cope with this task as you do not have much experience in writing of such papers yet. Let’s try to look into the process and understand what writing a college research paper is.

Writing a College Research Paper: Coping with the Task

First and foremost, you should understand what you are supposed to do. You are writing a college research paper in a certain course. You have to make some kind of research in a topic within this course. Usually it is a student who formulates his or her research paper topic and makes the so called thesis statement.

While writing a college research paper you show your ability to study the subject by yourself, to analyze the information found, to study ideas and viewpoints of others, to point out the main things, to make your own arguments and conclusions. Self-management plays also an important role. How to plan your time? Here are some useful notes:

  • make your own time-table, put the main stages of your work in it (studying of the informational materials, making an paper outline, writing the main body of a paper, writing conclusions etc.);
  • do not forget to devote several days in your time-table to visiting your tutor, he or she will help you when writing a college research paper;
  • do not postpone any stage of your work, it is much better to work a bit every day but being in no hurry

When writing a college research paper you should also keep in mind the following things:

  • All the sources that you have mentioned in your research paper must be stated in the reference list even if you do not cite the author’s ideas but only describe them. You use the thoughts of others only as the help in making your own research. So, do not be a plagiarist!
  • Pay attention to the format of your research paper. There are several research paper styles and each of them has its own writing requirements. If you have some questions concerning your paper style consult your tutor. He or she may also ask you to make some changes in your paper style.

Keeping these tips in mind will help you in writing a good research paper!
