What's Your Question?

How to Write a Research Paper

Writing a research paper is a bit more difficult that a standard high school essay. You need to site sources, use academic data and show scientific examples. Before beginning, you’ll need guidelines for how to write a research paper.

Start the Research Process

Before you begin writing the research paper, you must do your research. It is important that you understand the subject matter, formulate the ideas of your paper, create your thesis statement and learn how to speak about your given topic in an authoritative manner. You’ll be looking through online databases, encyclopedias, almanacs, periodicals, books, newspapers, government publications, reports, guides and scholarly resources. Take notes as you discover new information about your given topic. Also keep track of the references you use so you can build your bibliography later and cite your resources.

Develop Your Thesis Statement

When organizing your research paper, the thesis statement is where you explain to your readers what they can expect, present your claims, answer any questions that you were asked or explain your interpretation of the subject matter you’re researching. Therefore, the thesis statement must be strong and easy to understand. Your thesis statement must also be precise. It should answer the question you were assigned, and there should be an opportunity for your position to be opposed or disputed. The body of your manuscript should support your thesis, and it should be more than a generic fact.

Create an Outline

Many professors require outlines during the research paper writing process. You’ll find that they want outlines set up with a title page, abstract, introduction, research paper body and reference section. The title page is typically made up of the student’s name, the name of the college, the name of the class and the date of the paper. The abstract is a summary of the paper. An introduction typically consists of one or two pages and comments on the subject matter of the research paper. In the body of the research paper, you’ll be breaking it down into materials and methods, results and discussions. Your references are in your bibliography. Use a research paper example to help you with your outline if necessary.

Organize Your Notes

When writing your first draft, you’re going to have to work on organizing your notes first. During this process, you’ll be deciding which references you’ll be putting in your bibliography and which will work best as in-text citations. You’ll be working on this more as you develop your working drafts and look at more white paper examples to help guide you through the process.

Write Your Final Draft

After you’ve written a first and second draft and received corrections from your professor, it’s time to write your final copy. By now, you should have seen an example of a research paper layout and know how to put your paper together. You’ll have your title page, abstract, introduction, thesis statement, in-text citations, footnotes and bibliography complete. Be sure to check with your professor to ensure if you’re writing in APA style, or if you’re using another style guide.

27 Accesses

Metrics details

This article explores some aspects of the relationship between education research and the natural sciences. It begins by pointing out that empirical or positivist science of the Modern era has had a powerful influence on the method and on the products of education research. From there the article moves to discuss the post modern sciences of the current era and speculative examples are given of the way they too may influence the method and the products of education research. In conclusion it is argued that this can and will occur as both education research and post modern science inhabit the same cultural and epistemological field.

Natural Science

Ever since the first dinosaur fossil was unearthed by Robert Plot in 1676, dinosaur fever has infected almost everyone. Dinosaurs captivate us not only because of the enormous size that some of them attained, but because of their extraordinary diversity. Encompassing such astonishing creatures as the fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex, the majestic Triceratops and the cunning raptors, dinosaurs are truly fascinating. From such fascination many questions arise. How were the dinosaurs able to survive for

Difference between the Social Sciences and the Natural Sciences

own view. Social sciences are the analysis methodically of the social area of the world. They are mixed area of study of human behavior and society which include disciplines of anthropology, economics, political science, psychology and sociology. Social sciences study methodically the manner in which people behave and how they influence the world around us. It aims to comprehend any given social phenomena by using a methodology borrowed from the physical sciences. Natural sciences are the study of

Sociology and The Natural Sciences

entity’s legitimacy as a science is a concept worth discussion. Although sociology is different at face value than the natural sciences, the two possess fundamental similarities by which problems are recognized and explained. With the explanation of why sociology is a science, the next step would be to specify what type of science sociology is and how it relates to the natural sciences. Karl Popper is an often cited philosopher when addressing the concern of sociology as a science and by his logical explanation

Natural Science And History

knowledge can be the information that is constantly updated and improved. With more research and evidence provided, our understanding and comprehension of the world around us can be changed. This essay will explore the issue in both natural science and history. Natural science is base on the scientific method, it consists five key steps: observation, hypothesis, experiment, law and theory. There are many problems in the scientific method, such as expectations in observation, background assumptions in

Natural Sciences Essay

the fact that was known and generally accepted by the general public. In my essay I will discuss how the “old” knowledge was affected when there were new aspects of particular knowledge discovered. I will focus on two areas of knowledge: The natural sciences and the arts and I will ask myself: To what extend can new knowledge contributes to abundance of old, generally recognised facts? Today’s medicine fully understands how human blood circulation works. However in Ancient Greece people believed

The Nature Of The Natural Sciences

constantly being further confirmed, but one set of evidence can prove them wrong. Though often invalidated, theories in the human and natural sciences are still incredibly convincing. This is due to the nature of the natural sciences, human sciences and humans. In the natural sciences theories are fact-based frameworks initially relying upon a hypothesis. The natural sciences are often regarded as this infallible thing searching for the truth. Theories are come about through use of the scientific method

Theories in the Human Sciences and Natural Sciences

What it is about the theories of human sciences and natural sciences that make them so convincing? When focusing on the human sciences and natural sciences, one might wonder why we believe what we believe. In general, human science can be defined as a social science, or anything that deals with human behavior in its social and cultural aspects (Bastian 190). Natural science is more often thought of as "regular" science. It is an organized undertaking that focuses on gathering knowledge about

Social and Natural Sciences

be achieved with an experiment. Natural sciences may be referred to as a science of the physical world, whereas a social science may be defined as a branch of science dealing with human society and relationships. Furthermore, social sciences and natural science may be distinguished by the method of their creation. In general, natural sciences usually require a form of action (i.e. experiment) to provide justification for their knowledge claims whereas social sciences don’t require action to justify

Human sciences and natural sciences and the attainment of truth

The human sciences and natural sciences are considered knowledge by many worldwide, as their arguments having convinced people one way or another. While the natural sciences focus on swaying belief by showing duplicable evidence through a strict and standardized methodology, the human sciences focus on explaining how things are and how they came to be using logic, reason, and an understanding of human behavior. Beginning with the scientific revolution in the fifteen hundreds, the Western world has

Faith as a Basis For Knowledge in the Natural Sciences

as a basis for knowledge in religion and the natural sciences. In order to fully analyze these strengths and weaknesses and determine which of the two is more prevalent, faith, religion, and the natural sciences should be distinguished from one another. In The New Merriam-Webster Dictionary faith is defined as the “belief and trust in God” or “allegiance to duty or a person” (270), religion as “an organized system of faith and worship” (617), and science as “knowledge covering general truths or the

Ethical Judgements of the Arts and Natural Sciences

We make decisions all the time whether it would be in the arts or in the natural sciences. Natural science is the area of knowledge that is seeking for patterns. Meanwhile the arts is the area that is more broad and subjective. However, both areas of knowledge are affected by the moral decisions and judgements that the people make in the production of knowledge or the method in which we explore for these areas of knowledge. Ethical judgements are related to the human moral values and they affect

Variations of Knowledge in The Arts and Natural Sciences

The two areas of knowledge that I am going to explore are The Arts and The Natural Sciences. In relation to the question, my initial perspective is that the Arts is an area of knowledge that is somewhat contentious due to its subjective nature, as firstly it can be hard to accept something as art. Conversely, the Natural Sciences is an area of knowledge that is based on objective truths and therefore when I originally approached this question, I thought that knowledge can be accepted, and then discarded

Use of Experiments in Natural Sciences and in Sociology

Use of Experiments in Natural Sciences and in Sociology Experiments are particularly important in natural sciences as they are the device used to either prove or disprove a hypothesis. Sciences such as chemistry or physiology operate in what is known as closed systems, where all the variables can be controlled. This means therefore that such experiments can be carried out, and effectively. Whereas it may be difficult in physical sciences to control the variables, and in sociology to recreate

Ethical Judgments in the Arts and the Natural Sciences

available in the production of knowledge in both the arts and the natural sciences. Discuss. When talking about ethics we have to take in account that it is based on the socially standardized concept of some things being good and some things being bad. Therefore what might be seen as socially unethical arts for some people, in another society or in another time, it probably won’t be so. The same is true for the natural sciences. And even if we take our western society as a base, there are some

Discuss The Difference Between Social Science And Natural Science

case be possible? Apparently, natural scientists look different to this case, in other words: from a totally different angle or view. But what is then exactly the difference between social and natural science? Social science is systematically studying human social relations, groups and societies (Appelbaum & Chambliss, 1997). This means social scientists are part of the reality they investigate. In short, social science studies the social world. The social sciences are guided by theory or observation

The Production of Knowledge in both the Arts and the Natural Sciences

production, judgements will undoubtedly be made that may seem to limit the availability of that knowledge. Ethical judgements are made by the combination of a knower, his or her standard of value, and the situation itself. In the field of the arts and natural sciences, ethics plays a crucial role in the extent one may possibly be allowed to go to when discovering new knowledge. Reason and emotion are important ways of knowing that help guide knowers in making certain moral decisions. Both ways of knowing can

Knowledge from the Viewpoint of Natural Science and Art

lenses through which we view this world, to compound this, it is also limited by the conceptions created through the individual experiences of people and how these created ethical decisions limit the acceptability of certain pursuits. In the natural sciences ethical judgments limit the methods by which knowledge can be produced to a great extent because knowledge in this area is largely paradigmatic in nature and the production often undermines those paradigms thereby conflicting with widespread

Discovering New Knowledge in Natural Science and History

knowledge of natural science and history because there are many knowledge issues discarded in those two areas, as scientists and historians constantly discover new theories and truths about the past. In this Theory of Knowledge essay I will be discussing the new findings of skulls in Georgia and how the old theory of human evolution could be discarded. I will also be discussing the relativity of theories being wrong and the faults in deduction and the scientific method. Natural science belongs to

Philosophy of Science and the Theory of Natural Selection

view, competing concepts, theories and methods of inquiry engage in a competitive struggle from which the "best adapted" emerge victorious. Whether applications of this analogy contribute to our understanding of science depends on the importance accorded the disanalogies between natural selection theory and scientific inquiry. Michael Ruse has suggested instead an "Evolutionary-Origins" view of scientific evaluative practices in which scientific inquiry is directed by application of epigenetic rules

What is it about theories in human sciences and natural sciences that make them convincing?

human sciences and natural sciences, one may question the validity of a claim or choose to support it without any evidentiary support. For many years, science has been accepted by many as the dominant cognitive paradigm, or model of knowledge. In fact, there are also people who believe that science is the only pathway for gaining knowledge, and if something isn’t provable through science, then it should not be accepted. A person might ask, what is it about the human sciences and natural sciences that
