Тема: What are some good topics for a college/university research paper?

Writing Research Papers. Writing is easy. All you do is stare at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead. --- Gene Fowler

This paper should be used only as an example of a research paper write-up. Horizontal rules signify the top and bottom edges of pages. For sample references which are not included with this paper, you should consult the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association , 4th Edition.

This paper is provided only to give you an idea of what a research paper might look like. You are not allowed to copy any of the text of this paper in writing your own report.

In this section, the main question that needs to be answered is what has been written before on your topic? In particular, you are interested in what has been written concerning any relationship between your dependent variable and your independent variables. In a normal academic paper, you need to demonstrate that you know every detail of the material important to your hypotheses. However, in this class I am only asking you to produce a minimal literature review.

This is an extremely unlikely occurrence. I would begin by looking for articles using alternate terms which have the same meaning as your concept. I would also talk to the professor. He is wise in the ways of science and can probably help.
