Aims of a research paper
In a research paper writers show that they are able to:
- use relevant sources and materials
- carry out the research process
- apply appropriate methods
- draw conclusions from the research
- present their findings in accordance with common academic standards
Deciding on a research topic
The decision on a certain research topic largely depends on your academic background. Therefore you should look at your previous field of study and choose a topic from an area you are familiar with. You should also take into consideration what you use the research paper for (obtaining an academic degree, publishing the text as a book or as an article in a journal).
Contents of a research paper
There are differences concerning the requirements among different academic disciplines, universities and faculties. Most academic papers are composed of the following parts:
- Leading question of research and reasons for choosing the topic
- Evaluation of findings made by other authors
- Description of the research methods (experiments, tests, surveys, interviews etc.)
- Presentation of the findings and conclusions for further research
Time Schedule – Get organised
There is the danger of “getting lost” in the research process. Only a strict timetable can prevent this. You should set clear deadlines for the following steps:
- Finding the topic
- Developing the outline, “rough” table of contents
- Collecting material from other sources
- Conducting your research, e.g. making interviews
- Writing your text
- Careful editing (orthography, style, proofing etc.)
Finding relevant sources
A keyword typed into a search engine does not replace a systematic look at the relevant sources. Bibliographies in books and journals will provide a wide range of sources for the work. You should build up a large collection of sources (index cards or iPad) for easy use in libraries and your own bibliography.
Research papers require a lot of intensive reading. Collect as many quotations and paraphrases as possible. Add a comment to each quotation or paraphrase. Your quotations serve as a basis for the controversy (agreement, disagreement, further arguments), which you have to show in your research paper. A well-organised collection of quotations and paraphrases helps to keep you to the theme. Print out your quotations and paraphrases with your comments so you can easily re-organise your source material later. Be careful with footnotes and do not forget to state very clearly which ideas you have taken from other sources!
Building up a support network
As a student you will usually be supported by faculty staff. Attending seminars and conferences will also help you broaden your horizons. Should you get the feeling that your work does not proceed the way you had intended, consult a coach or an adviser. He or she will give you recommendations on certain problem areas of your research paper. Coaches are also helpful in overcoming writer’s blockades or motivational crises.
The final weeks are very stressful. Ask a professional person to revise your paper. You will benefit from advice on orthography, style and formatting.
The final version – a checklist
You probably know what a research paper looks like. Just to remind you, here is a short checklist:
- Front page (follow the format required)
- Table of contents
- Acknowledgements (to express thanks to persons who contributed to your paper)
- Introduction or preface
- List of abbreviations
- Bibliography (only titles which you actually used)
- Appendix: list of tables, list of charts etc.
- Signed statement concerning authenticity of the text
