Depending on your topic and the nature of your research, you should take an analytical, expository, or argumentative approach w ith your thesis statement.

If you need a refresher on thesis statements, please visit this website: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/general_writing/the_writing_process/thesis_statement_tips.ht ml Among other things (see below), a good research paper involves : • finding a range of reputable external source s relevant to your topic (peer – reviewed, academic, and others) • articulating a central research question and/or thesis in a way that your readers will find compelling and interesting • synthesizing (putting together) the most important ideas from your external sources. This doesn’t just mean summarizing what other people have said, but consciously using source material as examples and supporting evidence for your own position or question • citing correctly and completely in your paper all sources you’ve used, and listing at the end of your paper all the sources you’ve cited Basic requirements • Ensured the paper is 1,500 – 1,700 words in length, NOT including “Works Cited” or “References” • Incorporated and correctly cited most, if not all, of the sources I used in my previous essays . Feel free to use new or additional sources. Minimum of 6 . • Formatted all pages according to MLA , Chicago, or APA format. • Written a well -developed introduction that describes the topic/issue and presents a clear view of the scope of this paper • Incorporated either a Research Question or Statement, and a Thesis Statement (see below) in the Intro • Created well -developed, logical paragraphs that either fo cus on one clear idea or provide a transition from an old to a new idea • Included in -text, parenthetical citations for all exact quotes, paraphrased material, or ideas derived from all sources • Made sure all sources cited in the paper are ALSO listed in the “Works Cited” or 2 “References” • Provided on a separate page a complete, correctly formatted, alphabetical list of all sources, called “Works Cited” (MLA) or “References” (APA or CBE) • Edited for grammar, clarity, and conciseness. Two Central Principles to Keep in Mind 1. Are you thinking about the issue? Professors who read academic papers have two very clear expectations. Naturally they want to see that you are learning, but they also expect you to show your ability to think: to use your knowledge to create and support your own ideas. Again, a research paper isn’t just a summary of other people’s ideas. 2. Are you identifying a problem, conflict, issue, or contradiction associated with your topic? In other words, you must have a clear PURPOSE for writing besides the fact that “it’s an assignment.” Once you define a real problem or issue within that topic, you have created a real -world writing problem: you have a reason to write and your reader has a reason to listen to you. It may be helpful to think of t he research paper as a form of investigative reporting. The writer not only tracks down new information but also tries to test and support these new ideas in the paper itself.
