      A Guide for Writing Research Papers
      Based on Modern Language Association (MLA)
      Documentation
      Prepared by the Humanities Department as part of
      The Guide to Grammar and Writing

      "A research paper presents the results
      of your investigations on a
      selected topic. Based on your own
      thoughts and the facts and ideas you
      have gathered from a variety of sources,
      a research paper is a creation
      that is uniquely yours. The experience
      of gathering, interpreting, and
      documenting information, developing
      and organizing ideas and conclusions,
      and communicating them clearly will
      prove to be an important and
      satisfying part of your education"

      Writing a Research Paper

      "There will come a time in most
      students' careers when they are assigned a
      research paper. Such an assignment
      often creates a great deal of unneeded
      anxiety in the student, which may result
      in procrastination and a feeling
      of confusion and inadequacy. This anxiety
      frequently stems from the fact
      that many students are unfamiliar and
      inexperienced with this genre of
      writing. Never fear-inexperience and
      unfamiliarity are situations you can
      change through practice! Writing a
      research paper is an essential aspect
      of academics, and should not be avoided
      on account of one's anxiety. In
      fact, the process of writing a research
      paper can be one of the more
      rewarding experiences one may
      encounter in academics. What is more, many
      students will continue to do research
      throughout their careers, which is
      one of the reasons this topic is so important"

      This page lists some of the stages
      involved in writing a library-based
      research paper.

      Although this list suggests that there
      is a simple, linear process to
      writing such a paper, the actual
      process of writing a research paper is
      often a messy and recursive one,

      "Most university courses involve
      some sort of extended writing assignment,
      usually in the form of a research paper.
      Papers normally require that a
      student identify a broad area of research
      related to the course, focus the
      topic through some general background
      reading, identify a clear research
      question, marshal primary and secondary
      resources to answer the question,
      and present the argument in a clear and
      creative manner, with proper
      citations.

      That is the theory, at least. But how do
      you go about doing it all? This
      brief guide provides some answers."

      "The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (1977; 7th ed., 2009) is
      a publication of the Modern Language Association of America, based on The
      MLA Style Manual (3rd ed., 2008). According to the MLA, since its first
      publication in 1985, the MLA Style Manual has been "the standard guide for
      graduate students, scholars, and professional writers" ("What Is MLA
      Style?").

      Like the MLA Style Manual, the MLA Handbook is an academic style guide
      widely used in the United States, Canada, and other countries, providing
      guidelines for writing and documentation of research in the humanities,
      such as English studies (including the English language, writing, and
      literature written in English); the study of other modern languages and
      literatures, including comparative literature; literary criticism; media
      studies; cultural studies; and related disciplines ("What Is MLA Style?").
      Released in March 2009, the seventh edition of the MLA Handbook (like its
      previous editions) is addressed primarily to secondary-school and
      undergraduate college and university teachers and students ("What Is MLA
      Style?"). According to the MLA, "For over half a century, the MLA Handbook
      is the guide millions of writers have relied on," and "It provides an
      authoritative presentation of MLA documentation style for use in student
      writing."
