After completing your literature review, you should have a good grasp of what is currently being discussed in your selected research topic.  Your next step is to write an introduction to your research paper.  Your introduction should follow this basic structure: 

Topic: Exercise intensity and its effect on body composition

  1. Identify the problem and area of interest
    1. Be direct – avoid discussing information that doesn’t directly relate to the topic at hand
  2. Briefly summarize key findings from the current research on your topic
    1. What is currently known?
    2. What gaps exist in the current body of knowledge?
      1. Hint: Your topic will fill this gap, so write in such a way as to highlight the need for your “study”
      2. The identification of the gap in knowledge should segue directly into the purpose statement
  3. Statement of the purpose of your study
    1. Include your research hypothesis
