Tips To Get Through Any Research Paper

Not knowing exactly where to start is the curse of all students. By following these tips, your paper will be far easier to write.

Decide your argument first.

A good way to do this is to write a specific thesis statement. Already knowing your argument will narrow your search. You will be aware of what information you need to be looking for.

Pull quotes as you read.

This will probably be the only time when it’s completely okay to copy and paste. Have a blank document open for every source that you’re planning to use in your final paper. Copy and paste your textual support into this document.

Once you actually begin drafting your paper, you won’t have to hunt for textual support. You’ll already have it readily available. Just make sure to cite your work properly.

Start Early

As cliche as this sounds, it is the best advice ever. If you start early, you won’t have to take on the feat all at once. Write a little bite everyday. This will free up your time to do other things and make the assignment seem far less daunting.

Seek Help

Make an appointment with you professor or T.A. These are the people that will likely be reading your final paper. Who better to tell you where the paper could use some work?  By asking specific questions during their office hours, you can find out how to better structure your paper. In addition, you already know what will make the final product more pleasing to the reader.

This girl’s sharp, quick wit may not be for the faint of heart, but those close to her say that she’s caring and hilariously funny. Reality TV, a not -so-small sweet tooth, nail polish, and fashion are but a few of her guilty pleasures. Her obsession with writing and hobby of interviewing brought her to conducting a few interviews with fashion designers and makeup artists for her fashion blog, Hey There, Stylish! Curiosity for different lifestyles and experiences lead to more interviews and ultimately became Gal Pal Magazine. Like many college girls, Lauren is a media strategies major who spends her days going to class; most of her late nights are reserved for studying and her night job.
