This part gives a background and history of the topic of research. It involves the main points and general ideas of your research paper. It is the synopsis of writer’s arguments. It focuses on main and leading points. The objectives of a writer are expressed in this part of research paper. Different questions like why he has chosen this topic for my research? What dimensions he has to cover in his research paper? In which way his research is different from past research?

The body and main content of research paper:

Body of a research paper is the main component of research paper. It describes the statements and answers of question in detail. To support your ideas you have to take help of facts, figures, examples, tables, graphs and charts. It increases the beauty of your research paper. Each paragraph written in the body of research paper should be differentiated by conclusion. Information relevant to one paragraph is written in the same. It is not written in the next paragraph. Next paragraph starts with a new idea different from the previous one. The methodology used in research paper writing is also written in one of the paragraph of body of research paper. If you have used primary research or secondary research means you have taken interviews or questionnaires.
