Title of Paper

A basic research paper consists of an introduction, body, and conclusion.  The introductory paragraph presents the topic of the paper and typically summarizes the main points and ends with a thesis.  The body of the paper covers the main points and normally includes citations to sources that support the author’s claims and information.  Papers should end with a conclusion.  Conclusions normally summarize the main points that were addressed, without introducing new content. 

The final portion of the paper is the references list.  The references list gives complete information about all of the sources that are cited in the paper.  For Rasmussen papers, the references list follows APA formatting rules.
