Good news! Our blog has been nominated for the best educational resource devoted to academic writing of 2013.
Writing a research paper can be done with the assistance of a well-written outline. An outline helps you tackle your assignment in smaller sections or points. The idea is to create the skeleton of your paper and your research contents will help build your paper. Keep in mind your outline may vary depending on guidelines and requirements. Pay attention to parts or sections needed and how your supporting points and details will be incorporated.
You can break up your outline into three main parts including the introduction, body, and conclusion. Even though these are the main components for your research paper you may have different subheadings, sections, and other related details that will vary. You should have your guidelines close by to ensure you incorporate related content into the outline. When you have each of these parts written down, think about points each part will need to explain.
The following points help you understand what to mention in each section.
Your outline may vary from other colleagues and even those in your field of study. This is okay as your outline is based on important ideas you want to include. As you complete your research you can plug in your findings based on what you have included in your outline. This is basically a listing of points your research paper will work to bring together cohesively. You can review different sample outlines to get a better idea on what you should include in your own.
