This Chapter outlines the logical steps to writing a good research paper. To achieve supreme excellence or perfection in anything you do, you need more than just the knowledge. Like the Olympic athlete aiming for the gold medal, you must have a positive attitude and the belief that you have the ability to achieve it. That is the real start to writing an A+ research paper.
Choose a topic which interests and challenges you. Your attitude towards the topic may well determine the amount of effort and enthusiasm you put into your research.
Although this list suggests that there is a simple, linear process to writing such a paper, the actual process of writing a research paper is often a messy and recursive one, so please use this outline as a flexible guide.
Many students agree that developing a fresh idea for a paper is a troublesome point they often get stuck in, helplessly trying to squeeze any idea out of their imagination.
Indeed, the choice of original ideas for your essay hampered not only by your imagination, but by a lack of novelty, interest and the ground for persuasion.
The conclusion of a research paper needs to summarize the content and purpose of the paper without seeming too wooden or dry. Every basic conclusion must share several key elements, but there are also several tactics you can play around with to craft a more effective conclusion and several you should avoid in order to prevent yourself from weakening your paper''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s conclusion. Here are some writing tips to keep in mind when creating the conclusion for your next research paper.
Have you ever tried counting how much time writing a single paper takes? Ever added up the time spent on writing essays and other assignments within a term? Within a year? A few years?
You can’t evaluate the full damage until you’ve seen the bigger picture. Research shows that an average student can spend up to 450 hours a term working on writing assignments. Can you imagine that? 450 hours! You could write a book in that time or do lots of other useful things. But instead, you are working on another essay that no one will appreciate (pessimistic but true).

Scientific research articles provide a method for scientists to communicate with other scientists about the results of their research. A standard format is used for these articles, in which the author presents the research in an orderly, logical manner. This doesn''t necessarily reflect the order in which you did or thought about the work. This format is:
1. The person who did the work and wrote the paper is generally listed as the first author of a research paper.
My sting exposed the seedy underside of “subscription-based” scholarly publishing, where some journals routinely lower their standards in this case by sending the paper to reviewers they knew would be sympathetic in order to pump up their impact factor and increase subscription revenue. Maybe there are journals out there who do subscription-based publishing right but my experience should serve as a warning to people thinking about submitting their work to Science and other journals like it.
OK this isn’t exactly what happened. I didn’t actually write the paper. Far more frighteningly, it was a real paper that contained all of the flaws described above that was actually accepted, and ultimately published, by Science.
