Weegy: It is important to have a research question when writing a research paper. [ [ A research question, at least in the social sciences, begins with the word ?why? or ?how.? Think of it as a puzzle: Why did a particular political or social event turn out as it did and not some other way? Why does a particular pattern exist in social life? Why does a specific aspect of politics work as it does? How has a social or political phenomenon changed from one period to another? The question can be general or particular. Why have some countries been more successful in the transition from Communism than others? Why did the Labour Party win the last British general election? How have conceptions of race changed in the US since the 1960s? How do different electoral systems affect the behavior of political parties? The point is that you should attempt to identify either: * novel trends, developments or outcomes in social life that are not readily apparent (the ?how? questions), or * the causes of a particular event or general trend (the ?why? questions). Professional social scientists?historians, political scientists, sociologists, international affairs experts?work on both these kinds of questions. In the best published social science writing you will be able to identify a clear ?how? or ?why? question at the heart of the research. ?How? and ?why? questions are essential because they require the author to make an argument. Research questions that do not require an argument are just bad questions. For example, a paper on ?What happened during the Mexican revolution?? requires the author to do no more than list facts and dates?a good encyclopedia entry, maybe, but not a good research paper. ?What? and ?when? questions are only the starting point for writing research papers. Obviously, you need to have a firm grasp of the facts of the case, but you must then move on to answer a serious and important ?why? or ?how? question in the paper itself. ] ] (More)
