Doing research is often even more difficult than writing the academic paper itself. Before starting the process, you need to make a pause and ask yourself, “How do I understand research?” If you clearly see the steps research involves, you’re much more likely to do it effectively and fast.
At this point, you may think, “I know how to research effectively. Research is research: I just google the information, pick the relevant pieces and voilà – this step is done. Now I can get to writing my essay.” Yes, you can do it this way. But what if you google and there are too many controversial or off-topic articles and books? Or, which is much more likely, not enough information you can use in your paper to back up your arguments, and you have no idea where you can find the relevant papers?
Research articles are made up of results achieved from conducting original research. These results can be obtained through either primary or secondary analysis. Fundamental research involves collecting and capturing information directly from the source. Secondary research includes obtaining information from the previous researches done by others and recording it.
The essential requirement of a research paper is to look for information relating to the topic, taking a stand/side on the issue and providing evidence for the position taken in an organized manner. The objective of the paper is the essence of a research paper.
The attitude towards abortion has always been and still is very controversial. It has, however, changed throughout the history of humanity: for example, it was commonly accepted in the times of Ancient Greece and Rome. On the other hand, the majority of men were against abortion as they felt they were entitled to have a baby. There are a few references to abortion in an Old Testament, where a fetus was perceived rather than an object, not a living being. In other words, there was a law, that if a person causes a miscarriage, he must be punished for that. There are no references to this topic in the New Testament. Later on, abortion in the western world was not considered a crime if done before a certain period, usually before 18-20 weeks. It was a common practice in the colonial America, but was usually kept in secret, as sexual activity before marriage was disapproved by the society. The Abortion Act of 1967 in England fully legalized abortion, but under certain conditions. It states that a doctor has the right to perform an abortion if other two doctors agree that this is done for the sake of the woman. For example, doctors are sure that giving birth to a child will cause physical or mental harm to a woman. Still, there are lots of debates concerning whether abortion should be legalized or not.
