What is a Research Paper?


A research paper is an in-depth account about a specific topic. It is based on facts and information collected as a result of thorough research of a topic.

A research paper requires that writers focus on a particular subject, develop a thesis, and support their postitions with convincing evidence: background information, facts, statistics, and descriptions.
