Research report or research paper?

The words research report or research paper (sometimes even project) can be used ambiguously between different institutions and faculties. It is important to read the criteria carefully to ensure you are meeting the requirements. If in doubt, ask your teacher.

Create a structure for your report - do this before you start your report - you can always modify it as you progress through the writing of your report.

Have you read the Research Report Helpsheet (from Melbourne Uni) that appears above? Test yourself on understanding the structure of a report.
