What follows is a hypothetical example of a research paper based on an experiment. The experiment: Say you have just conducted the Milgram Study. Now you want to write the research paper for it. (Milgram actually waited two years before writing about his study.) Here's a shortened example of a research article that MIGHT have been written.
A research paper should have a clearly defined thesis statement, and then several points from your research to support that thesis statement. In English, this research is often a review of other.
