Research paper/thesis?

Recommended Posts

Usually there are two basic categories, one being a descriptive paper and one being an argumentative paper.


For the former one, you don't need a thesis - you just need a topic you've researched well, you know clearly what's your focus and how you're going to present what you have to say. For the letter one, you do indeed need a thesis, as you're arguing certain point, i.e. not just presenting the topic you deal with, but also dealing with it critically, taking a stance with regards to what you're doing.


It would depend on your specific topic, though. One can often deal with the same topic in both ways, while sometimes one way is preferred or even necessary.
