- [Judy] Welcome to the course on Writing Research Papers. Hi, I'm Judy and I know that hearing you have to write a research paper are not words that you want to hear. Having an assignment to write a research paper may be in the same category as a dentist telling you that you need a route canal, neither will be painless but each can be made less painful when having a positive attitude and knowing what to expect. This course shows you the logical steps and provides examples to help you write that A-plus research paper as painlessly as possible.
All the way from when you have no idea what to write about to producing that high-quality, well-researched, well-organized, well-supported easy-to-read final project. I believe there's something in the course for everyone, whether you're writing your first research paper or have written multiple ones. Tips, guidelines, and examples are provided. All the way from getting started to supplementing what you already know. So, let's begin on the research paper journey.
