Some Research Notes and Useful Links
Students can get advice from the teacher about their study option and research. The student has to write either a research paper or thesis. The main purpose of this instruction is to guide the student to enhance their quality in academic writing and shape the research.
Find a Research Topic and Write a Research Article: A research article is a piece of academic writing based on your original idea on a particular topic. The student has to present the analysis and interpretation of the research findings they have obtained. Through the article, the research gets archival value. Further, the article connects research and researchers. Anyway, choosing an appropriate research topic is challenging. The ability to retrieve information to develop a good research topic is an important skill. Supervisors help you to find a specific topic, but most often supervisors require you to select your own topic of interest. The topic must be narrow and focused enough to be interesting, yet broad enough to find adequate information. There are a few things that you will need to know to find a research topic.
The students have to develop an academic writing habit, an essential activity in research, from research proposals to papers. In the following a link, the author provides some tips which can help to keep you focused and guide you write a successful research article.
Research Methodology: The research methods section in your article describes actions, specific procedures or techniques to be taken to investigate a research problem. It is used to identify, select, process, and analyze information applied to understand the problem. The method allows the reader to critically evaluate a study, overall validity and reliability. The writing should be direct and precise and should be written in the present simple tense. Find more tips from scholars.
A Tool to Check Grammer and Language Issue: To avoid unnecessary errors and typos students are advised to use the spell-check and grammar-check tool. Grammarly is a cloud-based English-language writing enhancement platform. The software could be used to proofread and check against more than 250 grammar rules. The app can be used to detect potential grammar, spelling, punctuation, word choice, and style mistakes in writing. Its algorithms flag potential issues in the text and suggest context-specific corrections for grammar, spelling, wordiness, style, punctuation.
Use Similarity Checking Tool to Avoid Plagiarism: According to IEEE, plagiarism defined as the reuse of prior processes, results, or words without explicitly acknowledging the contributing author and the source. The researchers have to aware that plagiarism in any form, at any level, is unacceptable and is considered a serious breach of professional conduct, with potentially severe ethical and legal consequences. In this regard, the plagiarism detection software gives percentages of similarity with other sources in your writing. The respective teacher sets a standard percentage rate that is acceptable to them. Students must remain lower at that percentage rate for their papers to be satisfactory in regard to similarity. Please follow the below link for further information. Interested students are referred to the respective teacher and supervisor to get a similarity check of their writing.
Bibliography and Reference Management: Write and cite. To be a responsible researcher give credit to other researcher and acknowledging their ideas. It allows the reader to track down and follow the similar sources used by citing them in your paper. In this regard, bibliography management tools also known as citation or reference management tools help you organize research sources and generate bibliographies in multiple citation formats. Mendeley is a free reference manager and academic social network that can help you organize your research, collaborate with others online, and discover the latest research. It can quickly add articles from any supported website directly into your reference library with a single click. Mendeley has plug-ins for MS Word. It makes bibliography creation easy. The Citation Plugin lets you cite while you write. There are lots of citation styles and you can even create your own. Further, it has a huge storage repository for individual researcher where you can keep the papers and track record of your reading.
