Students have asked for guidance on what makes a good research paper. I think research papers should have the following elements and structure:
- Introduction – background on the topic, why its important or interesting, and a statement of the research question.
- Presentation of Data/Information (for you this could be presenting the findings of various studies you have read)
- Analysis of the Data (This is your analysis of what all this information means)
- Statement of the conclusions drawn from the analysis – this is essentially the answer to the original question
- Discussion of the implications of the answer (What does it mean that the answer to your question is X?)
- Conclusion – Summary of the paper
Here is a simple example of what this might look like. Let’s say I was writing a paper seeking to answer the question of whether Blacks and Whites differ in their attitudes about baseball.
Question: Do Blacks and Whites differ in their attitudes about baseball?
- Introduction – Everyone loves sports, but race has proven to be a key factor in many aspects of American life. Thus, I wonder whether race impacts how people think and feel about baseball. Therefore, in this paper I will explore the following question? Do Blacks and Whites differ in their attitudes about baseball?
- Data – presentation of survey data on baseball, data on ticket purchases, and data on viewing habits; Or I might present findings from articles or books that have looked at this data
- Analysis – When I look at all this information – what does it suggest? Lets say opinion data is the same, viewing habits are the same, but ticket purchases are different. Maybe the latter is just a function of income, not attitudes.
- Statement of conclusion – The answer to the question is – No, they do not differ.
- Implications – The implications of this finding is that while race may be a factor in the society, it does not seem to impact how people feel about baseball. Perhaps there are other aspects of American life where race is not a factor. Future research should look at attitudes about other sports.
- Conclusion – summary of the paper.
