Government Research Papers

Government (and business-to-business) research papers are important to identify key elements to underpin policy-making and a culture of evaluation and learning, as well as continual development of quality standards. A Government or business-to-business research paper is the final product of an involved process of research, critical thinking, source evaluation, organization, and composition. The purpose of a research paper is to present a body of data to increase the knowledge of an audience or group; the paper comprises an introduction to the topic, detailed discussion of major aspects, problems highlighted and solutions offered. The length of a research paper is from a 3,000 word feature article to a full-length book manuscript of 60,000 words. Publishing a research paper in a journal or presenting it at a conference is an important aspect within the academic community. Research feature articles are published on the Internet and in topic-specific magazines.
