Organizing Your Social Sciences Research Paper

Offers detailed guidance on how to develop, organize, and write a college-level research paper in the social and behavioral sciences.

Purpose of Guide

This guide is intended to help students organize and write a quality research paper for classes taught in the social and behavioral sciences. Also included are recommendations concerning how to successfully manage and complete specific course assignments. Note that, if you have any questions about a research and writing assignment, you should always seek advice from your professor before you begin. Requirements set forth by your professor will always supersede instructions provided under these general guidelines.


Note: I recently changed the format to make the guide more user friendly on phones and other devices. The overall content remains the same.
