Writing A Decent Research Article On Global Warming
As the title suggests, a ‘research’ article is all about conveying a certain viewpoint and backing it up with facts and sound findings. If you want to write a compelling article on the phenomenon, Global Warming, here are a few tips you could use.
- Organize: A table of contents is always necessary. When you are devoting time and research into a project like this, it can get quite extensive. In cases like this, information needs to be organized, so the invigilator reviewing it has no trouble accessing particular sub-topics discussed in your write-up at any given time.
- The introduction: Every article needs an introduction. The introduction is what sets the tone of the piece you are writing. In this, you will briefly state your idea of global warming, your thoughts on the matter (hoax or not) and mention why you chose to discuss this topic.
- Now for the body, a good tactic is to divide all that you want to discuss into several chapters. For example, if you want to delve deep into the phenomenon of global warming, you may explain in detail what it is and how it occurred in the first chapter. Then, the second chapter could discuss effects of the same in the current years and possible effects in the years to come and the third chapter so on and so forth.
- A good way to bring your paper to life is through using illustrative statistics like bar graphs, pie charts, statistical figures, etc. For example, when you discuss the rise and fall in temperatures for the hottest years in the past, say, 50 years, you may point to a graph you looked up on the internet or other books, and then explain in more detail the significance of those figures.
- Discuss experiments conducted by scientists in the past and their corresponding results. There are research experiments being conducted on a multitude of phenomena and that has been the case for the past dozens of decades. Hit the library, look for old papers similar to yours and explore all different experiments and tests that were conducted by people before you in this particular global phenomena. Use these findings in your writing piece and relate them to the title of your write-up. Remember to always link all your information to the main question of your paper. How does it help in justifying what you are trying to prove?
- Lastly, keep one section at the end of your paper for References. This is where you mention all the websites, books, thesis etcetera that you collected your information from. Remember to mention them in a systematic order, numbered, with each reference containing the author or website name, the book name or article title and the year it was published.
Follow these simple rules and you will have written yourself a perfectly good research paper. Good luck!
