Writing a research paper is not easy and requires a lot of practice and homework. Before you start on the essay the first thing you need to work on, is the topic. Try to stick with topics that have adequate research material. You can also select little known or unexplored topics so that you can write from a new perspective. Whatever you choose, select topics that interests you because that way you will work with more enthusiasm.
Once you have selected the topic and done your research, you get down to writing. The body paragraph is the most important part of the essay. The introduction and conclusion is important too, but when writing a research paper you can be sure that the body will receive the most attention by the reader. So while writing develops small points and examples around the main point.
Since it will be a research based project you have to be accurate and informative. Do not put in vague phrases and assumptions. Give correct examples and figures to support all the facts and assumption you make. Try to be as relevant as possible. Write each and every sentence with unity to the topic you have chosen. The lines must be in support to the main idea. Since a research paper can be quite long you must follow a common structure.
Make all the paragraphs in the same structure and follow it evenly through the thesis. You can make rough drafts about what each of the paragraph should be about. Then make the structure of each paragraph, with the framework made distribute each point evenly within this structure. Having a basic structure helps to reader to read long essays.
They will know where to look for the specific point they are searching. It also helps the reader to understand better if it is presented in a neat, organized fashion.
Do not use long quotes. These are unnecessary and can add to the irritation of the reader. Try to present your own ideas and not someone else’s. The most crucial aspect of an essay is the flow. You should keep it smooth and easy to follow. Do not jump from one conclusion to another, do not make abrupt breaks. The transition from one point to another should be smooth, make sure the reader can follow the flow of information.
