The Secret To Writing A Good Term Paper Introduction

Well writing a research paper can become a pretty tricky job, especially if you are not properly equipped for this job. There are many steps that you should take into consideration to have an excellent research paper, but I will stick with the beginning only and that is, of course, the introduction. It’s a pretty important part of the paper if you screw this one up, people will be discouraged and will probably not even read your whole paper because the introduction has set them off track. Here are a few things you should do when you are writing your introduction.

  • The Topic. This is something that you should take into consideration. No matter what topic you have chosen, you should be able to present it briefly in the introduction. There are multiple things you can do once you have finished this, but for the moment, try to explain the general idea, the main idea that you will talk about in your paper in an objective and general manner, without giving too many details. The time for details in depth will be later, for now, all you have to do is make the reader understand exactly what is he going to read about and make him interested in that particular topic, so present it in a fun and captivating way.
  • Research. Well this part is important for the whole paper, but the introduction is no different. If for example you are making a research paper about quantum energy, you can throw in the introduction some information about it, like who discovered it first, what experiment made him think about energy in that way etc. Give some background information at first, and then after you have finished presenting these pieces of info, you can get the reader to really understand what you are talking about. For now, a few ideas should be sufficient.
  • Re write. Well this is something that you should do for the whole paper not just the introduction, but for the sake of it, let’s talk only about the introduction. Try to think of a few possible ways you could express yourself, and if you find one that is more suitable than the one you have already written, don’t be afraid to tweak the first one a little bit. Try and do this as much as you can, and you will be able to make a great introduction.
