During your academic career, it is important to realize that there will be a variety of writing papers that come across your desk. One of the most technical writing formats that you will see is a qualitative research paper. It is becoming increasingly common that many students are unaware of how to approach this paper appropriately.
Search engines are pretty much the digital equivalent of an endless library. There are a plethora of websites/organizations that specialize in writing these types of papers. Keeping this in mind, all you have to do is simply use keywords while searching for examples and vetting out websites. That’s it! (Easy enough right?)
The last part is actually the hardest. Vetting out credible websites can be a pretty time consuming task. For the most part the top websites are all tried and true. However, if you do not want to take the obvious approach with the popular websites, it is important that you do your research accordingly.
The easiest (and most reliable) resource that you can use is your professors/writing professors on campus. While the latter (search engines recommendation) is without question reliable, having someone to help you in person is even better. These writing professors will not only show you examples, but explain in details why some things are right and why others are wrong. As stated earlier, qualitative research papers are some of the most intricate and meticulous papers to complete.
Another in-person resource that you can utilize is your friends. We all understand that to some degree we have our own strengths and weaknesses. This is where you two can work hand in hand. If you know for a fact that this is not your area of expertise, than feel confident enough in asking a friend who understands it. At the end of the day, if you can do an even exchange and help them out when needed that would be a great plan!
Overall these tips are all tried and true for students to use on a daily basis. Following these steps accordingly will help ease your nervousness of writing qualitative papers.
