There is an opinion that term paper is one of the hardest types of academic paper since it is usually a little larger than other academic papers and may have up to 30-35 pages (in some special situations). At the same time, many experienced academic writers believe that high school and college research papers should be considered the easiest type of academic papers. First of all, in contrast to research papers, there is no need in going too deep and too detailed into the issue the author is going to present in the term paper. The main purpose of a term paper is to give general information about the phenomena, the idea, the concept, etc which is selected as the topic for the term paper. Therefore, comparing to research papers, college term papers are usually more general and do not require too scientific approach when doing research and collecting materials to be included to the term paper.

When working on presentation strategy, you should keep in mind that starting with simple things like definitions, descriptions, explanations, etc. is the best idea. If your topic allows you, you can address to some issues related to history of the topic, etc. Then, you can come to describing and presenting more complicated things and concepts related to the topic.

Writing and outline for your term paper can be a really great idea since it will help you see what kind of materials or info you have already managed to find, and what is possibly missing to make your presentation logical and clear. You can continues your research and find the missing information in other academic sources. Remember that when doing your research, you can use only serious reputable sources like books, magazines and academic journals, newspapers, other academic works, and so on.

Write one or two introductory paragraphs to present your topic and give your reader the idea what you’re going to write about. Then, write the body paragraphs of your term paper, following the outline you’ve created. Summarize your work with one or two paragraphs of conclusion. Keep in mind the formatting issues when working on your term paper and especially reference page. Proofread your academic paper before submitting it.
