A Comprehensive Guide On Creating A Psychology Research Paper

Research papers are one of the most stressful things that your teachers can ask you to do. For some reason, teachers love to assign these to students and students hate to do them. Usually you will do your first paper when you are in middle school and you will continue to do at least one a year until you go to college. At college you may be asked to do one in every course but you should be used to doing them by now. Here is a comprehensive guide on creating a psychology research paper:

  • Research papers can be done basically the same no matter what the subject matter is. The format should be consistent and it always begins with deciding what your topic is going to be. In this case, the subject is psychology and now you have to choose a topic from this very broad subject. The best way to do this is to brainstorm. Set a timer for 2 minutes and write down as many topics as you can in those two minutes. If you get to 10 topics you can stop. From those 10 topics decide which ones have the most research material. Eliminate the 5 topics from your list that don’t have much information. There is nothing more frustrating than getting in the middle of researching a paper and finding out you don’t have enough information to create a good paper. Of the 5 topics that are left, decide which three would be the most interesting to your readers. From the last three, choose the one that is most interesting to you. After all, you are going to be spending a lot of time on this paper so you may as well enjoy it.

  • Now that you have your topic, do the research. Research from at least three sources and take good notes and keep them organized. While you are researching, decide what your topic sentence will be and then zero your research into that sentence.

  • Create an outline that includes your introduction, all of your main points that you want to include in your paper and your conclusion. Make sure your introduction has your topic sentence in it as well as some information that will entice your readers to continue reading.

  • Write your rough draft following your outline like a map. The hardest part of your work is now done and all you need to do is refine your paper and make sure you are happy with the results.

  • Hand in your paper and be proud that you have done a thorough job.
