A research paper is one’s opinion on a topic, informed by research he has done. It is not a summary of others’ thoughts, a personal essay, or a review or critique. This can be daunting for new and experienced writers alike. The article must not have been published anywhere else. Moreover, the article should be decorated with references to basic sources. It is necessary to follow the rules of writing and spelling.
