Structure of a Research Paper in Social Sciences
- Introduction. In addition to introducing the topic under discussion, you demonstrate your style to the reader in this part.
- Literature review.
Think of the introduction as a mental road map that must answer for the reader these four questions:
- What was I studying?
- Why was this topic important to investigate?
- What did we know about this topic before I did this study?
- How will this study advance new knowledge or new ways of understanding?
Some examples of social sciences include the following:
- Political science.
Put simply, the social sciences are important because they create better institutions and systems that affect people’s lives every day. Thus, social sciences help people understand how to interact with the social world—how to influence policy, develop networks, increase government accountability, and promote democracy.
It is important because its study helps us to gain knowledge of the society we live in. Generally, Social Science focus on the relationships among individuals in society. It is the mixture of many subjects like History, Geography, Political Science, Economics, Sociology, Social Psychology and many more.
What is reading for meaning?
“Reading for meaning” means students focus on discussing and understanding what they are reading, not just pronouncing the words correctly. Adults can help kids “read for meaning” by asking two main types of questions – literal and inferential.
Go through the heading of the answer. It is very difficult for a student to cramp up the entire answer, so to ease the pressure, always try to remember the headings. Always make the time table according to the topics. If you are good at geography, then try to give more time to history or economics or vice-e-versa.
Regularly solve previous papers, sample papers; take mock tests. To score above 90% in the Social Sciences exam, it is essential for students to regularly solve previous years’ question papers. This will help students increase their score as some previous questions could be repeated in the question paper.
