Writing an Informative Research Paper calls for the writer to assume the role of an expert, to educate the audience on a particular topic. The writer assumes that the information they are to offer is not in the reader's domain, it therefore requires the writer to plan how to give the audience the most interesting and informative content.

Any writer has to choose an important topic which the reader will benefit from. They should be comfortable with that particular topic, since it gives the writer the enthusiasm to research deep into it and give the reader justifiable content. The writer's dedication towards a particular topic decides the effort the writer puts towards developing it to useful content for the reader.

The topic chosen by the writer should not be too wide, and if so it should be narrowed to a limited aspect, for instance one should narrow down a topic from example, “Communism” to “Communism in Britain.”The writer should however avoid subjects which are too complex or which have a very limited range of source materials.

Introduction plays a big role in the development of an informative research paper. The intro should have the quality and weight to capture the reader's interest and provoke them to read deeper into the content. It should be to the point to tell the reader what the paper is all about. It should neither be too long nor too short since it should give the reader a good hint of what the research content is all about.

An Informative Research Paper has the main aim of informing the reader, therefore a writer should be straight to the point. They should give what is necessary and give it early enough. Many readers don't have much time to read deep into lengthy content and they tend to give up reading if they can't find what they are in search of. Whatever the writer writes in the research paper should be informative, i.e it should add to the knowledge of the reader. The writer should therefore avoid repeating what is already in the reader's domain.

The body of the research paper should contain the most important specifics of the research subject. Information should be provided in an interesting manner which will capture the reader, with new information being provided in a contextual and a logical manner. In-case of common knowledge content, the writer has to approach it in a different angle to give it a new light at the end of the day.

Research must be conducted to give any  particular content a solid background. The writer shouldn't give information which they cannot advocate for, for instance from assumptions, since the reader will question their credibility. Libraries provide useful information towards development of the topic the writer tackles. Alternatively,information can still be gotten from the Internet, or from interviewing professionals in that given field. Writers should at all times be critical when sourcing  information, Information from these sources might not be uptodate or it might be having some gaps. It might worse still contain incidences of political bias in-case received from government websites and archives.

Before conclusion, the writer must proofread the content to eliminate grammatical errors and to ensure information given is justifiable and credible. The conclusion should summarize the whole content and emphasize the most important points.
