Conducting research

An outline is a “blueprint” or “plan” for your paper.  It helps you to organize your thoughts and arguments. A good outline can make conducting research and then writing the paper very efficient.  Your outline page must include your:

  • Paper Title
  • Thesis statement
  • Major points/arguments indicated by Roman numerals (i.e., I, II, III, IV, V, etc.)
  • Support for your major points, indicated by capital Arabic numerals (i.e., A, B, C, D, E, etc.)
  • Roman numeral I should be your “Introduction”.  In the introduction portion of your paper, you’ll want to tell your reader what your paper is about and then tell what your paper hopes to prove (your thesis).  So an Introduction gives an overview of the topic and your thesis statement.
  • The final Roman numeral should be your “Conclusion”.  In the conclusion, you summarize what you have told your reader.
