A research paper is an essay in which you explain what you have learned after exploring your topic in depth. You can create a graphic organizer for a research paper diagram depicting the important segments of the research paper. As the graphic organizer below illustrates, the goal of a research paper is to bring together different views, evidence, and facts about a topic from books, articles, and interviews, then interpret the information into your writing. It is about a relationship between you, other writers, and your teacher/audience. With EdrawMax Online, you can create a similar-looking graphic organizer for your ongoing research paper.
