V. Writing an Outline

  1. Writing an outline can be a very useful step between the research process and the actual writing of your paper. An outline will help you develop a better overall view of your research topic and will make it much easier to understand how the parts (subtopics) of your paper relate to each other and fit together
    1. A working outline is especially helpful because it helps you keep track of:
      1. different aspects or subtopics of your subject,
      2. the sources you use
      3. and your own changing views as your knowledge and understanding of your subject develops.
