Students who go in for higher studies will, in most likelihood encounter the need to write and submit a research paper. Many students are anxious about turning in a quality paper as they are inexperienced, but then student days are all about learning and once you have a research paper behind you, you will feel much more confident in the subject of your research. Writing a research paper can be a good learning experience and a rewarding one.
The research paper idea should be given serious consideration more than the actual research and writing itself. This is because all other features of the research paper will have to dwell on the main idea. You may also have the idea at the back of your research paper, but fail to have what it takes to complete the paper. There are so many sources through which assistance can be sought in starting and finishing your research paper. You can ask for help from your teachers or friends or you can even draw inspiration from the works of others. But make sure that you duly acknowledge any form or assistance that you get.
The student must also be clear as to whom the research is targeted. Is it only intended to be read by the instructor or should it address the larger academic crowd? The paper must add to the existing body of knowledge in the topic of research. At the outset itself, it may be helpful to have an outline draft of the research paper so that there will not be too much deviation from the topic. This can also help to give a direction to the research. The draft can be revised any number of times as the research progresses.
