 University life is a great experience, and most students are fond of attending classes and communicating with their fellow students. Hard times come with exams, but exams are an integral part of an academic process, and every student is ready for them. Higher education, however, brings another type of work for which students might not be prepared – research papers. Every university student writes at least one research paper during his/her degree program. What is a research paper? It is an elaborated piece of writing in which one presents one’s evaluation or argument about a subject. A research paper contains one’s discussion of the subject and reflects what one knows about this subject and what experts write about it. To write a successful research paper a student has to possess a number of research skills. These skills must be acquired by students, and sometimes it requires a lot of training and studying. What do we mean by research skills? These skills help a person do careful research in order to answer a specific question by looking at it from different angles. These skills include searching for information, analyzing it, and giving a critical evaluation.

Is it possible to acquire research skills through learning? The answer is yes. In fact, research consists of several steps. When a student knows these steps, he/she can divide his/her work into segments and to allot time to each segment.
