Typing up a research paper can be a daunting task. The easiest and fastest way to get a research apper completed is to first write out an outline of what your research paper is going to contain. This outline will contain the topic, thesis statement, main points, minor points, conclusion and the order in which the points are made. The next step is to write a rough draft of your research paper. This is typically done by hand and also contains your reseach materials. The final step is actually proofreading and typing up the document. Sometimes it helps to play quiet wordless music such as music of symphonies while working to help you concentrate.
