Achieving supreme excellence or perfection in anything, needs more than just an information. Like the Olympic athlete aiming for the gold medal, you must have a positive attitude and the credence that you have the ability to achieve the goal. The right attitude is the first step in being a pro at writing a research paper.
Often, there is a debate on whether to write the abstract at the start or at the end. An abstract is a concise single paragraph summary of completed work or work in progress. In few minutes a reader can learn the rationale behind the study, general approach to the problem, germane results, and important conclusions or new questions. So the best way to write an abstract is after you are done writing everything else. You can write it with a clear viewpoint.
The introduction of your research paper must not exceed 2 pages. The purpose of the introduction is to acquit the reader with the rationale of your research with the intent of defending it. The reader must be able to continue on your terms after reading the introduction. Describe the significance of your study to the reader and indicate the objective clearly without oversimplifying the point.
The methods and materials used in your research must be properly explained in the next section. There is no page limit to it but keeping it concise will result in writing an engrossing research paper. After describing your methods of research, you must come to the general body of a paper. This may sound like the easiest section to write, however, the objective is to be specific about your used methods so that someone else may use a part of it for their study.
Results of your research must be included in the final section of your research paper. The length of this section solely depends on the amount of data or findings of the research. Use past tense when you refer to your results and arrange everything in a logical order.
