A research paper is a formal recording of the findings of a detailed research after evaluating of the sources of information and a critical analysis. It is not just a compilation of all the primary and secondary sources of information related to the research topic. The conclusions of the researcher and his thought process in arriving at these conclusions must be set out concisely.
One should go through a research paper to understand the proper format for a research paper. To write good research papers, one should follow the steps mentioned. One can also refer to certain pages that list some of the stages that are involved in writing a library-based research paper. Even though the list may suggest that there is a simple and linear process to writing such a paper, the actual proper process of writing a research paper is often messy and recursive.
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.
