What is a term paper? A term paper is an academic write-up wherein you are to make a discourse or discussion based on readings of various sources on a certain subject or topic that may be assigned by your instructor or may be chosen by yourself.
The next question is how to write a term paper? There are just few simple steps in writing term papers in general though some may require additional steps depending on the weight of the paper to be written.
Usually, the first step is selecting the subject. Sometimes, your instructor will give you the subject. But still you have to work on narrowing a topic. Narrowing a topic will help you limit your discussion and will make your paper writing a little less complicated. And this step is the most important because your term paper will revolve in your selected subject.
Now you have a subject which is also the problem of your research, you now need to gather data and create notes that may help in your discussion. There are lots of available sources for you to find information. There are books, magazines, journals, and of course the internet.
