Hernandez Lorna November 21, 2020 Research Paper
Do not be afraid to revise your topic: As you enter the composition phase of your research paper, you may find that your paper starts off one way and ends another. This is an indication that you need to revise your thesis or topic statement. Make sure that your paper follows a continuous line of logic. You should state the course of this line at the beginning and follow it throughout. If by the end of the paper, you deviate from your preview or thesis statement in the introduction, you should revise your introduction to include the turn your paper has taken.
Choosing a topic is also important. While sometimes the student can choose from a list of suggested topics, he may also be allowed to choose one of his own. Choosing a topic itself requires some research to be aware of the existing knowledge in that subject and to be aware of the gaps that one can fill with research. The topic can also be fluid and change as the research progresses.
Research paper--the very words send chills down the spines of students everywhere. If you are a student, research papers are a reality of life and something you will be writing until your graduation day. There are some things you can do, and guidelines to follow that make writing a research paper little less painful.
Choose a topic that interests you. This is probably the most important thing you can do when selecting a research topic. Your teacher might constrain your selection, but if you are given any opportunity to influence topic selection, you should thoughtfully choose a topic about which you are eager to learn more.
Since your research paper will require hours upon hours of reading, thinking, and writing about your topic, you will want to choose a topic that will at least capture your attention. Think of those burning questions that you have inside. Those may be the topics on which you write with the most passion.
Writing a research paper is no sweet treat, but if you give yourself enough time to complete each step, the process should be a lot less painful. Procrastination is the serial killer of academia still at large. You can avoid this threat by choosing a topic that interests you, setting a schedule, and following through. I hope that the ideas flow effortlessly and your arguments are compelling.
