The purpose in writing a research paper in history is to analyze primary and secondary sources and to answer a research question. The answer to this question should be expressed as an argumentative thesis statement. The research paper parallels the writing in professional scholarly history books and articles; the writing is thesis-driven and seeks to prove a point. It is important for you to show why the topic matters, and how it relates to the time period under discussion, rather than why it should matter now; the writer should keep the focus of the paper within a historical context, and consider the question, “Why did this topic matter to people at that time?” Therefore, students usually refer to the Internet in order to find history research paper topics.
