General Bio paper help

Post by DanyelleNicole » Tue Sep 29, 2009 11:36 pm

I have to write a term paper for my biology class and I have decided Lupus shall be my topic.
Now I just need help on how to make it a scientifically objective paper. I'm not sure what that entails, but I'm pretty sure its not a paper just on what Lupus is.

Should I explain the process on how this autoimmune disease works/happens then go into how its treated?
Information for the paper is not a problem, its the structure that is! Help!

I think you should go by the criteria your teacher gave you. Otherwise "scientifically objective paper" means very little.

That is what you should tend to:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Systematic_review
That is what is the closest to scientific objectivity when it comes to review paper. OF course it is not that easy to prepare. But at least it can give you an idea of what you should do (read a lot, not be convinced by the first paper you read and be aware of differences of quality of data)
