Some Suggested Steps to a expert research paper writers

1. Choose Your Topic

  • Choose your topic wisely - not too broad or too narrow, avoid controversial or overworked topics.
  • Does some preliminary research - What kinds of information are available?  Choose a topic you can easily research.
  • Write a thesis statement to define the main idea of your paper.  What will you describe or prove?  Your thesis statement is your compass; it will keep your paper going in the right direction

2. Research your topic

  • Make a list of keywords to use.  (Write them down!) List synonyms - you never know what will bring up a 'hit' in a database.
  • Use the Catalog to find books in the TSU collection.  Try a variety of keywords, and keywords that are broader than your topic
  • Use World cat to find books in other libraries.  You can borrow them through inter-library loan. Allow a week or two for delivery
  • Use appropriate databases to find articles
  • Use print indexes if your topic is older or historic (e.g. the Vietnam War). Try the Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature - Ask for assistance -  a librarian will be glad to help.
  • Use the Internet wisely. Evaluate your sources, check government sites, make precise searches

3. Write the paper

  • Find a way to organize your materials - chronologically, or  by point or subtopic
  • Don't forget that tool from English class - an OUTLINE.  It will make writing easier, since you know where you are going.
  • Don't expect the first draft to be a finished product.  Write it up quickly and REWRITE! It's easier in the long run.
  • Consider writing your bibliography FIRST - you will be less likely to overlook material and more likely to see 'the forest ' instead of 'the trees'.

4. Details Matter

·         Use correct spelling and grammar PROOFREAD.

·         Use correct citation format - be consistent

·         Follow the instructor's specified format.  Double-spaced?

 Name on each page?  Footnotes or end notes?  Check your assignment or syllabus to make sure you understand the requirements.
