Research Papers use sections. -Unlike a traditional essay, research is broken into sections. Each major has its own style (so a physics research paper is quite different from a sociology paper). Our sections for CW1: 1) Introduction and Rationale 2) Methods 3) Results 4) Conclusion(s) 5) Appendix(es) Total length of the paper should be 3-5 pages. 1) the Introduction and Rationale (At least one full page) Before you began your research you probably thought of two important questions: what should I research, and why? Here you can describe your research, explain why your work may be useful or important, and why it is worthwhile to read your work. What can a reader gain from your work? If the length is hard to achieve, consider explaining why the topic interested you, describe your past experiences with this phenomena, or even write a mini-report on the topic using sources you find online. Also, I recommend that any hypotheses are placed at the end of this first section. (A hypothesis = a prediction about what might happen) It totally OK if your hypotheses do not occur!

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
