How does someone present a research paper? How is it meant to look?

Before anyone can help you, you need to specify what kind of research paper it is, for what purpose, and you should also give people a sense of what exactly you need help with. You mentioned the presentation part of the paper, however, no one is able to help you until you specify a little more. It is hard to help when there is so little information given. Provide some more specifics rather than just "How does someone present a research paper?" and "How is it meant to look?"

It's a research question that my history teacher gave us as part of our end of year exam. We are meant to describe how we would gather information to answer it. It's meant to be about a page long.

Hey, this is a great question. More than one answer can be given, but I will tell you my answer.

The paper is a collection of paragraphs. Each paragraph tells about the MAIN IDEA of an article or book written by a person with good credibility.

If you can write paragraphs about articles/books, and quote some of them once in a while, you can write a research paper.

Just start writing paragraphs about articles/books.

When you have written many paragraphs, look to find a THEME that they all share. What idea or theme can you find in them when you read them all. I mean... what does a person learn when reading all these article and books? Whatever truth you find in them should be expressed in the intro paragraph, which you write only after collecting several paragraphs about the main ideas.

I hope that gets you started!!!
