How to Write a Research Paper

"How to Write a Research Paper" is a handout I prepared for my students. Someone asked me to post the handout on the web. Here it is. 

I wrote this handout over the course of ten years. Initially I copied from another professor's handout. As the years went by, I saw that my students had specific needs and I lengthened the handout from a couple of pages to many pages. I added and subtracted according to what my students needed. 

At the end of this process, my students who followed this handout produced spectacular papers and they said that they enjoyed the process. 

Since I was teaching classes in folklore and mythology, and also in education, my examples come from those fields.
