We have all done it: procrastinating and leaving an assignment or any other task till the last minute. Sure, this helps to enjoy the life a little more, but this also means that one has to work really hard on that last day. The pros and cons of doing this are a debate for another time. Right now we are going to walk you through the steps which can be very helpful in writing a research paper in a short amount of time. So if you have landed yourself in a situation where this is exactly the thing that you need or you are a procrastinator, then you need to read this. So without further ado, let’s take a look.

You need to relax

Okay, so you have wasted a lot of time and now there isn’t much left but trust us, you need to relax. If you keep on worrying then you will be wasting the precious time that is already scarce. So this is why you need to relax. If you like to relax by watching some TV or playing your favorite game, then that is exactly what you should do. But don’t let the time spent on these activities balloon.

Choose a topic

Once you are relaxed, you need to start working on the research paper. The first thing that you need to choose a topic, if you haven’t done so already. If there is a list of topics then you should choose a topic from that list. If you are free to choose any topic, then make sure you decide on the one that you already know about. Don’t spend too much time on this though. The one thing that you need to keep in mind is that the topic shouldn’t be too broad as it will become very difficult to handle it later.

The Thesis Statement

Your thesis statement is a short account of what you are going to address in your paper. In other words, these are the question that you will answer in your paper. The more concise the questions are, the better.

The actual research

Once you are done with the above portion of the paper, you can’t proceed any further without doing some research. This is the thing you need to spend your time on. Hit the books and the internet. Research as much as you can in the time that you have.
