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.

5 ESSENTIAL STEPS OF SELF-PUBLISHING

Nearly everyone wants to write a book. While writing a book is a difficult undertaking, it’s what happens after that may separate the winners from the losers. To see your book published requires successfully navigating these mandatory steps:
5 ESSENTIAL STEPS OF SELF-PUBLISHING
  1. Complete the book. This may seem obvious, but until the book is completed it’s nearly impossible to move on.  Some estimates say as many as 97 percent of writers never finish a novel they’ve started.
  2. Design the book. The writing is not the end of making a book. It needs a cover design, an interior design and the processing of art and other images.
  3. Edit the book. A professionally edited book is essential in today’s publishing world. Misspelled words, poor grammar and typos quickly identify the book as amateurish, which will likely doom it to failure. Editing services include the following:
  • Text styling
  • Copyediting
  • Indexing
  • Proofreading
  • Link creation
  1. Distribute the book. A well-written book, professionally designed and edited, still won’t sell if nobody can find it. A distribution network is a way to get seen by potential customers.
  2. Enrich the book. There are many techniques for content enrichment, such as using media features to add video, audio and interactive augmentation.
 Like most authors, you may be great at writing in your chosen field, but the rest of publishing may be a mystery. When you contact an industry leader, you get guidance through the essential steps of publishing.

REASONS TO HIRE AN EDITOR IF YOU’RE SELF-PUBLISHING

For self-publishing authors, the buck stops with you. You are in charge and in control of every step of the production process. Once you’ve written the content, it’s great if you have friends or family willing to proofread, but it’s important to hire an editor. Here are three reasons why an editor can help make your book the best it can be:
  1. Objective Feedback
 Your book is your baby, but once it’s out of your hands, you don’t have any control over how it is perceived. An editor can offer feedback that can help you shape the work in a clear, linear way and better avoid any problems that you may have missed.
  1. Professional Proofreading
 Having error-free sentences gives your writing credibility. If your work is laden with grammar and story structure mistakes, not only is it difficult to read, but the reader will not trust you as an authority. An editor will catch these errors before you publish your work.
  1. A Writing Masterclass
 Beyond the concrete services of an editor, the knowledge of craft that an editor can impart is invaluable. By receiving constructive criticism, you can grow and develop as a writer. In the future, you will not make the same mistakes that you may have made on this draft.
If you’re ready to have an editor help you get your book in shape, contact Pen2Print. We have author services that include copy editing and proofreading so that you can put your best book forward.
Once you have your manuscript ready, the next important thing to do would be to reach out to professional editing services rendered by a reputed service provider.

SHOULD YOU PUBLISH IN HARDCOVER OR PAPERBACK?

The best part about being an indie author is that you get complete control over your book. But with freedom comes a myriad of options. For publishing, should you choose hardcover or paperback? 
SHOULD YOU PUBLISH IN HARDCOVER OR PAPERBACK?
The Case for Hardcover
For many people, hardcover books evoke fond memories of libraries. Hardcovers also give a book a professional, weighty look. For indie authors, having a hardcover book can be a great gift or giveaway item. Traditionally, new books from big publishers come out in hardcover first before going to paperback. This serves as a visual cue for reviewers that the book is brand new and worth coverage.
However, it is important to keep in mind that hardcover books come at a high cost. Generally, each of these books sells for upwards of $25. That price point can make them exclusive for many readers and can be expensive upfront.
The Case for Paperback
Paperbacks are a lot more cost-effective and open your work to a wider audience. They often have splashy covers and are a great deal lighter than their hardcover counterparts, which makes them easier to carry or pack
The con for paperbacks is that they are less likely to be reviewed by major publications. When deciding between the two options, it is best to set realistic expectations and determine your target audience.
Whether you choose hardcover or paperback, you need to approach a reliable service provider to make  your book a success.

HOW TO MONETIZE YOUR BOOK

Whether you are a book publisher or an author who self-publishes, you need to get your books into the hands of buyers. Depending on the book’s production cost and format, some distribution channels may not be feasible. Thanks to technological advancements and traditional brick-and-mortar bookstores, the distribution strategies for publishers are changing. Talking with readers and other individuals in your target audience about how they find out about new books and where they buy them are key to developing a distribution strategy. 
HOW TO MONETIZE YOUR BOOK
Wholesale distribution refers to the use of established book wholesalers, to provide fulfillment of book orders from bookstores and libraries. It is important to understand that wholesalers are primarily passive suppliers who are dependent on publishers and authors to drive sales.
Distribution Channels 
There are two primary channels through which books are distributed: wholesalers and distributors.
  • Wholesalers process and ship book orders to booksellers and lenders, regardless of whether they are physical bookstores and libraries or online. Self-publishers often list their books with these organizations. However, authors are responsible for creating demand.
  • Distributors promote and sell books to libraries and retailers. They generally buy books at significant discounts, store them, then ship as needed to their network. Depending on the book niche, there are some distributors that may be more appropriate than others.
Books could be printed or made digital. Ebooks are in demand and readily available for sale electronically through a wide range of retailers. Contact Pen2Print to learn more about how Edupedia Publications Pvt Ltd can help you complete your manuscript for publication.

WHY YOUR BOOK COVER IS ONE OF YOUR STRONGEST MARKETING TOOLS

You’ve probably heard that you should never judge a book by its cover. While that’s a nice precedent, it doesn’t sync with reality. If you’ve ever walked into a book store and picked up a book because you were drawn to its design, you know that first impressions really do matter. Here’s why you should leverage the power of a great book cover as one of your most impactful marketing tools.
WHY YOUR BOOK COVER IS ONE OF YOUR STRONGEST MARKETING TOOLS
Be Seen
There are millions of books readers can choose from, so yours needs to stand out from the rest. Potential readers rely on book covers to pique their interest and draw them in, especially if they have no idea what’s written inside. Your book cover needs to make a good first impression and stand out from the crowd if you want readers to buy it.
Hire a Designer
It’s worth it to hire a professional book cover designer instead of trying to create the cover yourself. Surprisingly, hiring a book cover designer can be remarkably affordable. In addition to having the experience necessary to design compelling covers, professional book cover designers also know what’s trending at the moment and can give you insight into what sells and what doesn’t.
Learn More
BUUKS offers multiple services to self-publishing authors, including book cover design, editing, eBook creation and conversion services. To find out how we can help you create a book cover that doubles as an effective marketing tool, contact Pen2Print at your convenience.

WHY EBOOKS AND PRINT BOOKS ARE EQUALLY IMPORTANT?

When you daydreamed as a child about becoming an author, you probably imagined holding a printed book in your hands. While print books are still popular and won’t go away anytime soon, eBooks are proving their prowess by rising in popularity year after year. In fact, according to one survey, the majority of readers equally prefer eBooks to print books. Here’s why you should consider publishing eBooks.
Convenience
Nothing takes the place of a tangible book when you want to curl up and immerse yourself in a story. However, not everyone has time to do this. Many readers have no choice but to snatch their adventures in short bursts. eBooks are incredibly convenient for those who want to read on-the-go. So, if you’re working toward a printed book (or if you’ve already published one), consider creating an eBook version as well to appeal to a wider audience.
Portability
It’s not practical to carry dozens of printed books around with you wherever you go, but anyone with a smart phone or tablet has access to hundreds or even thousands of books at a time. This portability makes the eBook very appealing for tech-savvy readers.
Practicality
If you’re looking for affordable and quick ways to get your book on the market, you can’t beat the eBook route. Getting your book published becomes even easier when you recruit the assistance of an experienced publishing company like EduPub. Contact us to learn how we can help you reach your publishing goals. editor@edupediapublications.com

WHY YOUR BOOK’S INTERIOR DESIGN IS AS IMPORTANT AS THE COVER DESIGN

Think about your favorite book. What draws you to it and makes you want to read it multiple times? Excellent content is probably at the top of your list, but have you considered the book’s interior design? When you open the cover, are you greeted with easy-to-read text, clear chapter formatting and clean lines? Here’s why interior design is just as important as cover design.

Hold Interest
A good book cover can entice someone to take a peek inside, but if the interior of the book is poorly designed, most readers won’t bother finishing it. One easy way you can capture a reader’s attention is by creating an interior design that has good flow. This includes chapters or natural separations in the book and clear text in a font that’s large enough to read easily. You should also make sure your book includes page numbers, running heads, chapter openings and other proper book elements.
Create Special Effects
Instead of filling your book with paragraphs of consistent lengths, try using paragraphs of multiple lengths to draw attention to certain parts of the story and create special effects. For example, short paragraphs can slow the reader down or induce feelings of expectation while long paragraphs can mimic the narrator’s “stream of consciousness”.
Get Design Help
Whether you need to streamline the interior of your book or perfect your cover design, EduPub can help. Contact us today to find out how we can get your book market-ready in minimally time.

WHAT’S TRENDING IN PUBLISHING

Publishing can be a challenging business, but it can also spark great opportunities for success. The key is to make sure you publish content that speaks to your intended audience. Need a little inspiration? Here are three current self-publishing trends.
Short and Sweet
Instead of wanting to “get their money’s worth” by purchasing books with many pages, today’s busy readers prefer to purchase shorter books that hold their attention until the last page. Aim for around 50,000 words and you’ll appeal to people who have limited time to read.
Satire 
People love to laugh, especially about subjects that tend to be dry or confrontational. Political and social satire are both popular, but keep in mind that politic and social topics tend to come and go quickly. The key to finding success in this niche is to create and publish content rapidly, before the topics you cover in your book become outdated.
Social Campaigns
Pay attention to current social campaigns and you can get some great ideas for books. Many authors follow popular hashtags to zero in on topics that appeal to a wide audience. Whether you write fiction or nonfiction, you can use real-world experience to become an authority on practically any social topic.
