7 Steps to Write a Research Paper in 1 Night

The journey of writing a 6-page paper in one night is definitely not the most entertaining one. But it doesn’t mean it is an impossible thing to achieve. If you have already procrastinated a lot, try to do your best to avoid procrastinating and focus on the writing process as much as you can, at least this night.

The following recommendations will be useful no matter whatever style or topic of a paper you have. So, don’t pay attention to formatting for now.


  • Plan. The very first thing you have to do is to create a plan. Even before writing a word or thinking about what you’re going to write, create a plan. Why? Later you will be moving with your paper by the steps provided in a plan. A plan is like a backbone for the whole paper. It helps you to see what you’ve already covered and what else should be discussed in a paper. You don’t have to be very specific with a plan. Even a couple of general points will help you a lot;
  • Research. Of course, a research paper is about doing a research mainly. So, divide your time in such a way to devote the biggest part of it to the research process particularly. A profound research is the key to a successful paper. If your research is poor, you will definitely lose the desired grades. Remember that a research paper is mainly about doing the research correctly;
  • Sources. To do a profound research, you have to use reliable sources. Forget about Wikipedia, of course, if you expect the highest grades only. We understand that you’ll probably won’t be able to visit a library if you have too little time before the deadline. But this doesn’t mean you can’t find similar literature online. There are a lot of websites, which offer online versions of popular printed literature. Look for them. Everything from books, scientific journals, articles to official statements will be suitable for your paper. Just make sure the information you extract from them is trustworthy enough;
  • Quotes. If you have to write a lot, but don’t know what else you can write, or you don’t have enough sources to base your opinion on, use the technique of filling your paper with the quotes. But don’t overdo with this. Support your opinions with relevant citations. At the same time, check if the cited parts don’t compose the whole paper, replacing your own thoughts and ideas;
  • Focus on quality, but not quantity. If you don’t know what else to write about your research paper, but you have three more pages to fill in, focus on the ideas you’ve already expressed. Describe them in details, instead of adding the irrelevant materials only to make your paper longer. Relevance is one more thing that is extremely important for every paper. Go for quality instead of quantity;
  • Don’t overthink about the style you are following. If it is too difficult or time-consuming to write in a very specific academic way, write a bit simpler. Let the readers understand you and what you’re trying to explain them;
  • And the last but not the least, check your papers before submitting them. Do it even if you have 10 minutes till the deadline. A quick proofreading and editing is better than no revision at all.
