Writing a formal essay is a skill you may not have acquired in high school, but you have to learn it in college. In presenting a formal research essay, you need to properly introduce the concepts, present your findings and come to a solid conclusion to summarize the purpose of the paper. Individual teachers may request minor structural changes, but the basic format for each job should follow the general guidelines.
The introduction of your work is what the reader sees first. You must provide a solid overview of the content and purpose of the document. You must introduce the problem or topic you are investigating, say why you are conducting research and deliver the arguments or position you are supporting in the body of work. It includes background information on the subject to indicate its importance. The last sentence of the introduction should be to guide you to the rest of your document and make a brief summary of the main points presented. You will probably review your presentation several times as you write your work, and if you experience any difficulty, you can write your introduction after completing the other sections.
The methods section is the first part of the content of your work and describes the special materials or methods you used to conduct the research. These may include materials for an experiment, questionnaires, surveys or interviews. If you are not sure how to define the methodology, consult your teacher for suggestions or guidelines.
Present your findings in the results section of your work with graphs, tables and graphs along with texts. Make a list of numbers, facts and figures for quantitative data that you can measure and use words to describe and accurately interpret qualitative information as summaries, summaries and explanations. It includes only information that is relevant to the study. Number each chart and refer to it in the text with that number when you mention it.
Draw conclusions from your findings in the discussion section. Refer to the points outlined in the introduction and determine if the research supported your thesis. Follow the discussion on the subject and do not introduce new information or irrelevant information that is not directly linked to your thesis.
Conclusions and recommendations
You can finish your work in the discussion section or continue presenting a section of conclusions and recommendations at the end of the document. The conclusion should specifically link research and identify where the reader should go from there. In the end, you can post your opinion, recommend what you should do about the problem to remedy it or suggest that further research should be done before reaching a final conclusion.
