1) Choose a topic for your research paper that is debatable, plausible and consequential.
and that is not too broad but also not too narrow.
2) draft an outline with a question, a thesis, proofs (main reasons, supported ideas) and conclusion based on proofs.
For your introduction use an inverse pyramid from broad to specific ie from what have been already done (don’t reinvent the wheel) to your specific thesis
For your conclusion rearrange the pyramid from specific to broad ie what your data prove and is it generalizable?
