How To Provide Analysis In A Research Paper: Good Advice


This short article will help college and high school students and freelance academic writers to effectively read research and write a term paper. It also paves the way for conducting an accurate analysis during these stages. Plan time accordingly and prepare a short but detailed timeline for doing research and writing the final essay.

Read – The most important instruction

Many students hand in poorly composed essays and fail their term paper because they did not do their homework. Thesis instructions, clearly defined in the first paragraphs, are not followed.

College professors will have noted what is expected in doing an accurate analysis in response to the questions. Carefully read their instructions.

Providing analysis for following the essay topic

Draw up a checklist. Usually, the question requires a lot more detail than simply answering it directly. The departure point in giving a proper analysis is to ask more questions.

Devise the analysis by proposing a main theme followed by not more than five sub-themes. Avoid overwriting or padding out the essay with irrelevant and insubstantial information.

Distinguishing between dissertation and thesis

Lecturers love academic language. When writing research paper instructions, they will insert the words ‘dissertation’ or ‘theses. Remember the distinctions between these two adverbs.

‘Dissertation’ entails writing an essay in response to a question. It will not necessarily be a long essay. The word count will have already been set.

The thesis is the question that invites a response by either agreeing or disagreeing with the statement made and with clearly defined substantiations.

Good research advice

Never rely solely on the internet for research. Many posted papers on subjects as diverse as history, politics, literature, economics, lack credibility and proper peer reviews. The library is the best resource tool for research.

Effective paper writing tips

  • Context – Stick to topic or question being asked.
  • Spelling and Grammar – Check vigilantly. Don’t rely on spellchecks if the essay is being typed.
  • Paragraphs – Begin with an introduction and close with the shorter conclusion. Everything in the middle should follow in orderly fashion, allowing the concluding remark to lead naturally into following paragraph.
  • Editing – Check that entire essay responds directly to thesis and does not veer off topic.
