Typing the Research Paper Text

paper. You will type the text of the research paper and then modify it later in the chapter,
so that it matches Figure 2–1 on page WD 67.
Plan
Ahead
Write the i rst draft, referencing sources.
As you write the i rst draft of a research paper, be sure it includes the proper components,
uses credible sources, and does not contain any plagiarized material.
Include an introduction, body, and conclusion.
The i rst paragraph of the paper introduces
the topic and captures the reader’s attention. The body, which follows the introduction,
consists of several paragraphs that support the topic. The conclusion summarizes the main
points in the body and restates the topic.
Evaluate sources for authority, currency, and accuracy.
Be especially wary of information
obtained from the Web. Any person, company, or organization can publish a Web page
on the Internet. Ask yourself these questions about the source:
Authority: Does a reputable institution or group support the source? Is the information
presented without bias? Are the author’s credentials listed and verii able?
Currency: Is the information up to date? Are dates of sources listed? What is the last
date revised or updated?
Accuracy: Is the information free of errors? Is it verii able? Are the sources clearly
identii ed?
