Every researcher wants to submit an excellent research paper at the termination of their research. Your piece of writing is the only medium that conveys your hard work to the readers. Whether you write an abstract, a research paper, research proposals or thesis, your ways of presenting the data and your writing style all together create a holistic picture of you. Owing to the utter significance of a research paper, here are some tips that can ease the complicated process of writing.

The following is a list of Do’s and Don’ts to remember as you begin to pen down your work:
The Do’s:

  1. Communicate your work clearly and precisely. Remember you are presenting a novel work done; you don’t have to write stories.
  2. Spotlight the ideas and methodologies involved. Discuss specific reasons to justify your research.
  3. Your innovative ideas and methodologies can be followed by future researchers, therefore, doubly verify the accuracy and correctness of the data you present.
  4. Your presented materials should give a thorough conception of the topic and all its aspects.
  5. Refer diverse sources of research for trustworthy and most up-to-date information.
  6. Do scrutinize your research stuff and information for reliability and present it with ample analysis and logic to show how it conveys and supports your research.
  7. Provide solid evidences and sufficient supporting arguments to reinforce your findings.
  8. Fill your paper with scientific terminologies. Write your paper with only enough detail about the research work.
  9. Maintain a track of the bibliography and references. Sort data by source or mark your notes so as to remember where individual facts came from.
  10. Proof read the paper several times. Do not hesitate to take help of your friends/peers/colleagues/professional editors in proof reading and fine tuning the paper.

And the Don’ts:

  1. Do not misrepresent yourself. Be honest to the readers.
  2. Don’t include anything that doesn’t answer the questions. It won’t lead to any new conclusion about your work.
  3. Don’t lengthen your paper unnecessarily. Relevant and to the point data is sufficient to frame your work and make your point.
  4. Don’t reveal incomplete or absurd reasons for doing the research.
  5. Don’t exceed the recommended word limits. This gives an impression that you don’t know how to follow guidelines, manage within limitations or systematize your findings.
  6. Don’t make too many generalizations. A paper full of overviews gives an impression that you do not have anything to say.
  7. Don’t write in a vacuum. Make sure that each of your findings support the cause.
  8. Don’t forget to reference any supporting material or related research done by other prominent researchers’ it augments and complements the research paper.
  9. Don’t cite Wikipedia.  Rather find an absolutely reliable source for your citations.
  10. Don’t plagiarize and always proof read your work before submission.

  7. The effects of cbd oil for cats
    are not yet understood, but the possibilities are exciting because this pure chemical has shown promise in many areas.
    As is unfortunately often the case, many people left to complete scientific information on creatures coupled
    with anecdotal evidence only to discover later, after having accumulated their own information, that CBD is not
    a fantastic thing for cats. It is not the first of such discoveries but it is certainly one
    that has caused scientists to wonder if CBD might be a much better
    alternative for cats when compared to prescription pain killers.
    However, with cats proving so resilient, scientists have to
    continue studying this pure chemical.
    Yes, cbd oil for cats is perfectly safe
    for cats. Cats possess such a low metabolism which don’t need large amounts of food to maintain weight in check.
    It’s not advised to feed your feline cat too much of its own body weight each
    day, or else it will get fat just like a bear. It’s fine to
    give your cat a little bit of food in the kind of
    canned food or dry food at the first week, but don’t over-feed.
    Following these steps will help you learn whether or not you should present your cat this highly nutritious
    oil.

  9. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am anxious
    about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net.

    a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.

  15. One thing I have actually noticed is the fact there are plenty of misconceptions regarding the banking institutions intentions if talking about foreclosed. One fable in particular would be the fact the bank desires your house. The lending company wants your hard earned cash, not your property. They want the funds they lent you together with interest. Steering clear of the bank will still only draw a foreclosed summary. Thanks for your write-up.

What I want to point out is that while searching for a good online electronics retail outlet, look for a web page with complete information on important factors such as the personal privacy statement, basic safety details, any payment methods, and also other terms plus policies. Continually take time to look at help along with FAQ sections to get a far better idea of how a shop functions, what they can do for you, and how you can make the most of the features.

  19. Did you write the article yourself or you hired someone to do it?
    I was wondering because I am a site owner too and struggle with writing
    new content all the time. Someone told me to use AI to do create articles which
    I am kinda considering because the output is almost written by human.
    Here is the sample content they sent me – https://sites.google.com/view/best-ai-content-writing-tools/home

    Let me know if you think I should go ahead and use AI.
