Types of Research Papers: What is it?

Research papers are piece of academic writing that offers interpretation, analysis and explanation based on extensive independent research by the writer. Research papers, unlike a journal article or a term paper is more detailed and longer, and is generally designed to evaluate not only one’s writing abilities, but also those of other writers. Research papers are usually written to present results from an empirical research study to support an assertion. For this reason, research papers must be original, well-written, thoroughly researched, and formatted correctly.

Introductions are the introduction paragraph in research papers. Inexperienced writers tend to write their introductions in a short manner, providing the most important elements of the paper within the first few paragraphs. This can be interpreted as not offering enough details. The introduction, as with any other section of the paper, must be carefully written to make a lasting impression on the reader.

The Body is the main part of the document and is concerned mostly with your contribution to the literature. It is important to begin with a discussion of the research paper’s question, i.e., why you conducted your research, what kind of results you have come up with, etc. In addition to your explanation, you should then provide your arguments for your findings in the format that your professor has set for you. In certain departments or thesis committees, you may need to submit your original research question along with your submission. You must ensure to research the exact requirements prior to submitting the application.

Supporting Data and a different research paper’s Section This is the last part of your research papers. In order to adequately support your arguments and claims in the original paper, you must provide additional information or interpretations to back the claims. This is often referred to as the postulating or supplementary part in effect papers. This section should be prepared following the discussion on the effects papers. It must be well-organized and easy to comprehend. In the case of effect papers, you are allowed up to three additional papers that support the conclusion and the significance of the research papers. They must be written in clear English.

The Original Research Question: In essence your research question, it should be written in such a way that it asks for different perspectives on the same subject. Most instructors will ask you for an essay or two on the topic you’ve discussed in your original research papers. This will allow you to consider different perspectives. Your instructors may also ask you to include different perspectives in the paragraphs you cite in your essay. You should therefore try to include as many perspectives as you can in your paper. Of course this will require you to be much more concise than you are with your argument.

Conclusion: The conclusion paragraph in research papers summarizes the arguments made throughout the paper. The conclusion of research papers is different from a thesis statement in that it doesn’t require all views be accepted. However, the former requires that all views be considered (even ones that are not accepted). The conclusion of a research paper is a summary of the discussion in the article, and whether the conclusion is valid to reflect the views that were expressed in the research papers. The thesis statement however, is required to be backed by empirical evidence. Therefore, research papers that present diverse perspectives must be backed by empirical evidence.

Introduction Also known as the “daisy talk”, the introduction is a portion of research papers that gives a general overview about the research paper’s contents and what’s coming. In essence the introduction serves as an overview of the various views and concepts that are discussed throughout the paper. The introduction is , therefore, not as significant as the other sections. The outline will probably not be as long as the introduction. It is nevertheless important that the outline provide enough information for readers to get an idea of what is expected in the article.

Conclusion: The conclusion is by far the most significant element of a research paper as it concludes the discussion on the lessons learned throughout the research process. The conclusion can also be used to indicate where one wants to take their research or what their goals are for their research. This concluding remark in research papers is crucial because it is the last paragraph before the main part of the written research, which makes it a crucial part to the reader. Research papers’ conclusion must be written well and backed with relevant facts and figures.
