"Research papers do not have to be the painful experience many people make of them. It is possible to develop significant skills in order to make the writing process much easier than you thought. We've seen a detailed explanation of them above, but let me summarize:
Develop a well-focused analytical research question.
Structure your paper with a solid outline that answers the question.
Write intentionally, filling in the blanks in your outline with paragraphs that focus on your single goal, which is dealing with your research question.
Use your sources skillfully and ethically at all times.
Let the tools available for formatting help you produce papers that professors will find a pleasure just to look at.
Happy Researching" (William Badke)
