Tips for Writing a Research Paper



Staring at the blank page of the screen with no idea of how to write a research paper can evoke instant anxiety in students. A research paper usually means sleepless nights, stress, and a lot of work. But, it does not need to be that way. 
Though a research paper may seem painstaking and daunting at first, knowing the proper steps can make it quite effortless. The key is to divide the work into smaller and easy-to-handle steps.
To write an A+ research paper, you just need to stay motivated and know some tips that can help you with the process. Here is a list of various effective strategies to simplify your work.

  • Choose a Relatable Topic

Look for an engaging topic. It is generally best to select the topic you are interested in or curious about. This will make your researching more enjoyable so that you can write with more enthusiasm.
Avoid subject that is general or too technical. Also, your topic shouldn’t be too broad as it will look like a general overview. Narrow your topic down to a distinct concept, aspect, or idea to make it manageable and specific.

  • Create a Thesis Statement

A thesis statement is a central point of your research paper. It is basically a sentence that summarizes the primary point of your essay. It is imperative to create a rough thesis statement as it will guide the reader from the beginning of your paper by telling them the main idea of the essay. 


For a solid thesis statement, make sure to keep it simple and specific as it is much easier to research a narrowly chosen subject than massive data.
Make sure your thesis statement complies with the following list:

  • Tell readers what to expect from the paper
  • Explain to the readers how you interpret the subject of the research
  • Answer the questions you were asked
  • Present your claim that people may want to dispute
  • If you can, show your thesis to your instructor to revise.

  • Make a Rough Outline

An outline will provide you with a blueprint for your research paper. It will help you organize your thoughts before you dive into the writing process. After the thesis statement, make a list of main points you will need to present to support your statement. These main points will be your subheadings. 
With the notes you took down during your research, start brainstorming where the topics and supporting information best fit.
For instance, ask yourself questions such as does that stats belong in the starting, middle, or end of the paper or is that line make a good opening paragraph. You can rearrange as needed.
Making an outline is a critical part and may take longer than other steps, but it is worth the effort and time as this is the foundation of your final research paper.

Note: If any information doesn’t fit within your outline, and doesn’t support your thesis statement, it doesn’t belong in your research paper, no matter how interesting it is.   

  • Create the First Draft

Once you are done with the framework or outline, start with creating the rough draft with a title and a reference page. To make a good impression on the readers, make sure your title is impressive as it is the first thing readers see. Draft your essay as freely as possible, following the outline closely.
Structure your prepared outline into meaningful sentence and paragraph form, putting more details so that readers can understand your point better. Use all the note cards or paper information you feel is important and relevant. If you feel like, you may do more necessary research along the way. 

  • Revise, Edit and Proofread

After you have prepared the rough draft, revise the paragraphs for unity and coherence. Read the paper thoroughly for any content errors. Reword the sentences for the effectiveness of grammar, structure, and punctuation.      


Once you feel the draft feels right, with all the vital sources and information put in, start with writing out the final paper.
Further, make sure every source is on your bibliography page. 

Conclusion

Once you are finished with your paper, take some time before going through it for the last time. Make sure your facts, figures, quotes, and citations are accurate. So, before you start writing the research paper, skim through these tips for an effective paper.
With these fantastic tips in hand, you’re now on the way to writing the perfect research paper.

Improving Customer Experience (CX) with Data Visualization (DV)


Customer service departments of big companies engage with thousands of customers every day. Each interaction holds importance and the company can use it for their benefit. But the increasing number of these interactions means it is impossible to look at each one of them individually or to understand the individual customer journey. That is where Data visualization comes in. It can help customer-facing teams to improve their customer experience and point out the areas for improvement by using data analytics, and machine learning on customer data.
Marketing managers, sales representatives, and customer service professionals need to process a rapid flow of information to decrease the waiting time for every customer. It can also help them understand what customers need during these interactions. Organizations that use data visualization and business intelligence can obtain critical information 78% of the time, within the decision window, an improvement of 22% over organizations who don't use these tools!
We are going to discuss a few ways in which data visualization can help organizations do better when it comes to customer experience and overall customer satisfaction.

Customer-Interactivity

Only a few years ago, customer service was based on static texts and automated one dimensional encounters. Today, visualization of big data has taken customer experience between a company and its client to a whole new level of interactivity.
Businesses are using different visualization techniques that promote interactivity with their customers. One example of that is application (app) dashboards or live sessions that are operating in real time. They keep getting updates as the customers make any changes to any of the contributing factors. This helps them make a quick and better decision on how they want to do certain tasks which leads to a better customer experience.
Investment centers, credit facilities and banks have added different data visualization techniques to help customers analyze their expenses. This could be in the form of a pie chart or trending graphs to differentiate between their spending and saving allocations. The concept is based on reaping the full benefits of the data present in a customer’s financial statements and creating a customer centric design that meets their needs.

Analyzing Product Performance

Data visualization has played an important role in bringing the customer experience to a level higher than it used to be. Organizations have switched to visuals to promote their products by using a very user-centric design. Data visualization can help analyze the performance of a product or service. It can also help us address any issues with the product as reported by a customer. Data visualization makes it easier to recognize the customer behavior trends about specific products or services. These data points give actionable insights so that we can change our business practices according to the choice of our customer.

Understand Data Consumption Objectives

With enough data present about the interactions with customers, data visualization tools can help customer service professionals understand and answer what data does a user need to access? When and Why? What is the smallest amount of data that will help answer the user’s question? These are some of the questions that data visualization answers.

Creating a Mobile First Design

An interesting application of data visualization is integration of dashboards in a website. A number of businesses and industries are following this trend of showing their stats using a dashboard on their websites based on customer feedback and demand. Dashboards have also given rise to using mobile first approach when designing a website or an app.
The Mobile First technique is exactly as it sounds, designing an app or a website design for the smallest screen and then moving your way up to tablets, laptops and desktops. It is a good technique to create a responsive and adaptive design for an app or a website. With very small screens, it is hard to present the customer with their extensive but important data that is where data visualization comes in. It helps show important information which would otherwise fit a whole webpage into small responsive figures which can easily fit on a small display of a mobile phone. Customer analytics shows that mobile first leads to greater customer engagement and longer visits.

Identify Customers with recurring issues

Another goal of a designing a better customer experience is to identify customers who are experiencing recurring issues. It is done in order to separate them from the rest of the customer interactions. Teams can attach unique codes to these individuals to keep track of their issues throughout their interaction with the company. Data visualization can help identify this data from other normal interactions and can help make it easier to communicate these customers individually and let them know the status of their problem. Visualization can also help later use this data to solve other recurring problems which enhances customer retention.
Data Visualization is gradually becoming an integral part of company operations as means to understand big data. Nowhere is it more needed than in dealing with customer service complaints. This data has to be available in real time and analytics tools help to ensure that high priority customers don't get missed. This enables customer service professionals to handle their interactions with customers in a better way, reducing response times, and providing more transparent communications.

Conclusion

Customer experience is key to modern business and Data visualization is a critical component to deliver consistent customer experiences. From the customers own interactions with charts, that enable quick actions, to employees and agents tools managing those customers in the most efficient way possible, many aspects of one's business can be improved through leveraging these tools.

Asian Studies

Asian Studies is a Humanities and Social Sciences institute and knowledge exchange platform based in the Netherlands. It encourages the multidisciplinary study of Asia and initiates programmes that engage Asian and other international partners.Asian Studies facilitates fellowships, organises conferences and publishes The Newsletter, our free periodical on Asian Studies.

The cluster aims to expand the understanding of the process of globalisation by considering the various ways Asian and other world regions are interconnected within a long-term historical framework, recognising Asia’s historic economic prominence and geopolitical influence from before the colonial era. Acknowledging the central role of Asia as an agent of global transformations, it challenges western perspectives that underlie much of the current literature on the subject and explores new forms of non-hegemonic intellectual interactions in the form of ‘south-south-north’ and ‘east-west’ dialogue models.

Asian Studies also aims to develop a more evenly balanced field of Asian Studies, by collaborating in trans-regional capacity building initiatives and by working on new types of methodological approaches that encourage synergies and interactions between disciplines, regions and practices.

In principle, any research dealing with Asian global interactions is of interest. Topics include, but are not limited to, the migration of peoples and their diasporas, religious transnational pilgrimages and networks, forms of economic expansion, cultural dissemination, geo-strategic projections and engagements. Also of interest are issues that are central to the contemporary discussion on knowledge production and its circulation within a globalised world.

Asian Studies with ISSN no. 0970-7301 is a Multi-Disciplinary Journal of Asian Political, Economic, Cultural Affair and Natural and Human Resources. Asian Studies, a bi-Annual UGC Approved Journal. Send papers for publication to editor@asianstudiesjournal.com

How contributing a book chapter in edited book is beneficial?

If a book and a pen can change the world, then a literary piece of work with well-drafted chapters can add grace and precision to the change. A well-edited book with constructively added chapters can offer a wide range of viewpoints and arguments within the work.  Even though the book chapters are different from journal articles, many of them are not peer-reviewed.
This is the reason the works are not subjected to as many alterations and edits as one could expect from journal articles. Even though publishing a book chapter may turn out to be less prestigious than working on journal articles, it is hard to ignore the advantages.
 Here is a list of the essential benefits of contributing a book chapter in edited books.
Happy reading!
  1. Book chapters summarise the theme
Prof. Eric Jones of the assignment help brand Assignmenthelp.us says “An edited book with chapters written by different authors adds up to the thematic weight of the work. It paves the way for the researchers to explore further avenues in their individual academic disciplines.”
Making a specific contribution to writing a book chapter can help your readers develop a thorough knowledge of the theme of the work. This advantage is noteworthy and inarguably beneficial. A book composed with chapters can attract the attention of many, making it easier for prospective readers to gain an insight into the main content.
  • Makes book revision less burdensome
The summarised chapter in an edited book is the sign of precision and technical accuracy. When you are already coming up with a well-drafted chapter for an edited book, the entire process of revising the content becomes less tiresome.
For instance, you may quickly refer to the summarised chapter in the book in case you are lost in the middle of an overly lengthy literary work. When it comes to revising novels and other literary pieces containing hundreds of pages, summarised chapters can help you to keep track of the primary purpose of reviewing the work.
  • Chapters from edited books are used for teaching purposes
Contributing a book chapter in edited works is equally helpful when it comes to teaching. One can use multiple citations, references and examples to educate others.
While referring to the entire copy might turn out to be a bit complex, a thoroughly summarised work composed in the form of chapters can serve the purpose better. Unless you are able to come up with a concise version of a humongous work, reaching out to the audience might be an issue. It is said that children can benefit from reading chapter books. Introducing your child to chapter books at an early age can nurture a love for reading, helping them to become avid readers in the course of time.
  • Contributing a book chapter ensures validation
You may ask your editor for the book proposal to identify the spot where the chapter fits. Validation is undeniably a big term when it comes to citing an original work. Contributing a book chapter can help such situations improve. When you are contributing a book chapter, you are actually putting an effort to read the entire work. In most cases, reading is followed by summarising the content in your own words.
This, as a result, shall help you to present original slants, draw relevant references and come up with a concise and verified script altogether. With all academic writing intended for publication, book chapters are peer-reviewed individually. Furthermore, the typescript of the book is likely to be reviewed as well. Thus, reviewing the chapter for original slants will only validate the work for others to draw references from.
  • Edited books with chapters are more accessible

This is yet another significant advantage to talk about if we are to mention the essential benefits of contributing a chapter in edited books. In many countries, edited books end up in libraries that cannot afford to rope in multiple English language journals.
It is said that a seminal edited text or a handbook is cheaper in comparison to subscribing to a series of ongoing journals. It apparently provides a basic platform of resource that can eventually support internet searches for “open access sources.”
All things considered…
Contributing book chapters in edited works is certainly one key area of concern that should be handled with care. Before signing off, I would like to summarise the blog with a quick recap of the things we have learned so far.
  • Appropriately summarised book chapters are essential for the purpose of teaching.
  • It influences a wider field of practitioners and their individual practices.
  • Well-drafted book chapters open up further scopes for extensive research.
  • It makes the entire process of revision less tiresome.
  • Edited books with chapters are more accessible and cheaper.
Go grab a cup of coffee, pull your socks up, put on the thinking cap and pen down the perfect chapter that contains scholarly inputs to bind up the entire work.
Here’s wishing you all the luck in advance!
