How to Write a Research Paper: Organize Your Ideas
It's time to turn the note cards into an organized outline
Organize Your Ideas
Using the information collected on the note cards, develop an outline to organize your ideas. An outline shows your main ideas and the order in which you are going to write about them. It's the bare bones of what will later become a fleshed-out written report.
Below is a partial sample outline for a research paper entitled The Early Days of Baseball. To see other sample outlines, click here.
