Checklist: Writing a research paper

Research papers are essential in your academic life, and writing a proper research paper is not hard. Still, everyone needs a detailed checklist to feel sure about completing a research paper. We’re here to help you with a thorough list.

You may want to use this checklist while writing your research paper to keep track of your writing process, you may use it after you’ve finished your paper to check your work before submitting it, or you can do both and foolproof your work, it’s up to you.

Always double-check your paper to make sure you didn’t use someone else’s ideas (including paraphrasing) in your paper without citing them. Check our How to cite in MLA and How to cite in APA articles for more information.
