No clear number of cases or statistics related.
Please divide your research paper into the following parts:
TOPIC: Generally, describe the Topic and how it fits into your field of Study.
HYPOTHESIS: a supposition or proposed explanation made on the basis of limited evidence as a
starting point for further investigation.
METHODS: Define your sample and its characteristics and the way you found the information for you to write the RP.
FINDINGS-STATISTICS-GRAPHICS: This is a descriptive and numeric data report.
CONCLUSION: Restate and summarize your findings and discussion. Bibliography- References
Elements of a Research Paper
generally describe the topic and how it fits into your field of study
• Set the scene
Describe the environment and its conditions
Get permission before using personal information
• Introduce and describe the problem
Describe what you intend to show/argue and why
What is its significance?
Illustrate the problem with an interesting example
(Remember you are writing for an audience and want to capture their interest)
• Begin to define terms, concepts, vocabulary
If possible, use one authoritative source or combine definitions and footnote your sources
Later in the development of your paper, be conscious of using new terms and their definitions
Review the Literature: Develop your Hypotheses: Your hypothesis is your proposed explanation that you will test to determine whether it is true or false
Methods: Give enough information so that others can follow your procedure,
and can replicate it (and hopefully come up with the same findings and conclusions as you did!)
• Describe your procedure as completely as possible so that someone can duplicate it completely
• Define your sample and its characteristics
These should be consistent throughout the test
• List the variables used
These are what change, or that you manipulate, throughout the test
Findings: This is descriptive and numeric data
Discussion: Develop your argument based upon your findings.
While the data may read for itself, you will need to interpret
• how it validates your hypothesis
• what falls outside of validity
• how it impacts the literature you cited
• where further research is needed
Conclusion: Restate and summarize your findings and discussion either in order to simply complexity or to provide a summary for those who skip to it!
References: Verify with your teacher the proper format
Recommendations: A research paper is not an essay, an editorial, or a story.
All assertions of fact must be documented.For more information on Anatomy and Physiology on Sickle Cell Anemia read this:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sickle_cell_disease
