An argumentative research paper takes a position on a contentious issue and argues for one point of view. The issue should be debatable with a logical counter argument.
APA format is used by researchers in the social sciences field, and requires in-text citations as well. It ends the paper with a “references” page, and may also have section headers between body paragraphs.
A research paper is a large scientific work assigned to students of higher levels of schools, as well as in colleges and universities all over the world. The main goal of this project, regardless of the subject for which it was assigned, is to define a particular issue, research it, and provide new ways to solve it that can be used for further investigation of the problem.
Take a trip to your local library or university library. Although it may seem old fashioned, libraries are chock full of helpful research materials from books to newspapers and magazines to journals. Don’t be afraid to ask the librarian for help either - they are trained in research and know where everything about your topic is located.
