Types of Research Papers

Most research assignments ask you to engage in one of two approaches:

  1. Explore and evaluate (present an analysis)
  2. Persuade (present an argument)

The interaction below will give you more information about each type. Your professor may allow you to choose between these strategies or may ask you to use only one. If you’re not sure which type you should use, be sure to ask!
