How to Write a Research Paper



     "Most university courses involve

     some sort of extended writing assignment,

     usually in the form of a research paper.

     Papers normally require that a

     student identify a broad area of research

     related to the course, focus the

     topic through some general background

     reading, identify a clear research

     question, marshal primary and secondary

     resources to answer the question,

     and present the argument in a clear and

     creative manner, with proper

     citations.



     That is the theory, at least. But how do

     you go about doing it all? This

     brief guide provides some answers."

Writing a Research Paper in Mathematics



"Good mathematical writing, like good mathematics thinking,

is a skill which must be practiced and developed for optimal performance.

The purpose of this paper is to provide assistance for young 
mathematicians

writing their first paper. The aim is not only to aid in the development

of a well written paper, but also to help students begin to think

about mathematical writing.



I am greatly indebted to a wonderful booklet, "How to Write Mathematics,"

which provided much of the substance of this essay."

THE RESEARCH PAPER



"There is a standard format for all research reports, whether

they be of the natural or social sciences. The ultimate goal is

to test hypotheses, the predictions derived from one's theory

and built upon the findings of others.



The structure of the research paper reflects the profound

relationship between theory and fact. Facts do not speak for

themselves. As Marvin Harris (Cultural Materialism 1979:7)

observed, "facts are always unreliable without theories that

guide their collection and that distinguish between superficial

and significant appearances." On the other hand, theories

without facts are meaningless. The premise of science

(and what distinguishes it from dogma and armchair

philosophizing) is the authority of experiment and

observation over reason, ideology, and intuition."



http://www.trinity.edu/mkearl/research.html



"Also reflected in a research paper is the cumulative nature of

scientific knowledge. In the "Review of Literature" section one

reports on the findings of others relevant to one's own inquiry.

Your enterprise may be simply attempting to replicate others'

findings using a different population at a different point in time.

Or you may be addressing contradictory predictions derived from

two different theories, or noting inconsistencies in findings of

different researchers. In the "Discussion" section you will be

communicating to future investigators: what did you find and

where does one now go?



Finally, it's worth stressing that the evaluation of your paper will

never be determined by whether or not your hypotheses are

verified. It is important to remember that a hypothesis supported

by the data does not mean that it is true as there conceivably is

an infinite number of other theories that lead to the same prediction.

Similarly, failure of support does not necessarily mean that your

hypothesis is wrong: it may be hold true in some populations,

you may have incorrectly measured your theory's concepts,

your sampling may be flawed, etc. Philosopher Karl Popper, in fact,

argues that science is not a method for verifying hypotheses.

Instead, all that science can logically lead to is the falsification of

hypotheses. In sum, negative results can be every bit as important

as positive ones."

"American Psychological Association (APA) style is an academic

format specified in The Publication Manual of the

American Psychological Association, a style guide that offers

academic authors guidance on various subjects for the submission

of papers to the publications of APA.[1] The APA states that the

guidelines were developed to assist reading comprehension in

the social and behavioral sciences, for clarity of communication,

  and for "word choice that best reduces bias in language".[2][3]

The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association

contains guidelines on many aspects of academic writing as it is

regarded as appropriate by the APA. Among the topics covered

are information on the structure of research papers of various kinds,

spelling rules, an author-date reference style, construction of tables

and graphs, plagiarism, formatting of papers, and much more.



APA style is widely used, either entirely or with modifications,

by hundreds of other scientific journals (including medical and

other public health journals), in many textbooks, and in academia

(for papers written in classes). Along with AMA style and CSE style,

it is one of the major style regimes for such work. Many publications

have small local style guides that cascade over AMA, APA, or CSE

style in a way analogous to how inline styles in HTML cascade over

CSS styles (for example, "follow APA style unless otherwise specified

herein" or "for issues not addressed herein, follow APA style")."

Directorate of Intelligence Style Manual, Eighth Edition,

2011.

It is entitled Style Manual and Writers Guide for Intelligence 
Publications.



     This guide is designed to be helpful and convenient, sensible

     in organization, and logical in content.





     Directorate of Intelligence Style Manual, Eighth Edition, 2011.



     It is entitled Style Manual & Writers Guide

     for Intelligence Publications.



     It contains, among other changes, a revised list

     of accepted acronyms and new tips on word usage.

     The world is not static. Nor is the language we

     employ to assess it.



     less...

     Good intelligence depends in large measure on clear,

     concise writing. The information CIA gathers and the

     analysis it produces mean little if we cannot convey

     them effectively. The Directorate of Intelligence and

     the Agency as a whole have always understood that.

     Both have home, from their earliest days, to people

     who enjoy writing and excel at it.



     .



     The Style Manual and Writers Guide or Intelligence

     Publications is an essential reference for the officers

     of our Directorate. Now in its eighth edition, it reflects

     an enduring commitment to the highest standards of

     care and precision.

     This guide is designed to be helpful and convenient,

     sensible in organization, and logical in content.

     It contains, among other changes, a revised list of

     accepted acronyms and new tips on word usage.

     The world is not static. Nor is the language we

     employ to assess it.



     In dealing with foreign policy and national security,

     ]our government has many sources of insight on

     which to draw. The depth of our knowledge, the

     strength of our thinking, and the power of our

     words will ensure that our customers, from

     policymakers to operations officers, continue to

     rely on the Directorate of Intelligence.

WORDS :



VOCABULARY:



Lake Superior State University's 40th Annual List of Banished Words



Sample Entry



SKILL SET



"Why use two words when one will do? We already have a perfectly

good word in 'skills' (ending with an s, not a z)."  Chip Lupo, Columbia, 
S.C.



"A skill is a skill -- that is it. Phrases such as 'I have the skill set 
to do that

properly' or anything resembling that phrase, shows the speaker is 
seriously

lacking skills in the art of conversation. Please try this, 'I have the 
skill...

do you have the skills... this requires certain skills... he is very 
skilled...

that was a skillful maneuver... See? No need for a skill set."
