There are many things that should be taken into consideration before starting off on your research paper project. If you are asked to choose everything for yourself except the rules and style of the research paper, then you have to do a bit of research even before you start off on the subject. But don’t think that it is easier to have the topic and all the guidelines for that particular research paper provided to you. Because in that case you are in for another kind of pressure – that of strictly sticking to the guidelines given. If the guidelines say that you are expected to do an argumentative research paper on the topic given, when it is better to start off your research well in advance because it is not easy to argue on a topic you haven’t chosen for yourself, unless you are lucky enough to have been given one which you are familiar with.
Argumentative research paper, as the name suggests, requires you to argue on or against a particular topic. So if you have the option of choosing a topic for yourself, it is better to choose a topic of which you have a thorough understanding. Knowing a subject is the key to being able to argue convincingly about it.
We argue about something or the other, almost every hour of our life. We argue about small and big matters, deep and shallow subjects and serious and sometimes very silly topics. Just because you are one who always wins the everyday arguments, do not over-estimate yourself on being capable of writing an argumentative research paper in a day’s time, because, everyday arguments never really change much in your life but the arguments you present in your research paper might.
You have to put in a lot of effort to find relevant points to support your arguments. Shallow and hollow arguments will not impress the judging committee and considering they are hearing lots of them every day, trust them to pick one the moment they hear it. So if you really wish to secure good marks for your argumentative research paper, then make sure to stick to the points which are as directly related to the subject as possible.
In the introduction, you have to give a brief description of the topic you wish to argue about. Then you move on to explain the reason why you wish to argue on that particular view. While explaining your views, it will help to touch upon, very briefly, on the contradictory views of others, if you are capable of turning it in your favor. The conclusion will as usual be a summary of all the points and the point where you will connect it all to your argument.
