How To Write an Academic Paper

  • Writing in the Humanities
    The Writing Center at Dartmouth College has put together a very useful guide on how to write a research paper in the humanities. Specific guides on how to write an Art History paper, an English paper, etc. are included.
 

Writing an English Paper

A well-constructed research paper properly synthesizes the writer's views with the outside perspectives and critiques of other authors. Emphasizing both the author's original insights and the interpretations of respected supplimentary sources, it should ultimately be an expression of the writer's inquiry into a specific topic of interest. Research paper assignments for the English discipline often range in specificity and length. Nonetheless, there are certain stylistic conventions and expectations associated with the English research paper.  (from the U of Richmond)
