A research paper is a formal academic paper that reports the findings and process of research related to some specific issue or topic. Considering research paper are linked to formal and academic contexts they should include only credible sources, which are those containing accurate, true and update information and created by respect and well-known author or expert in the topic, this includes research articles, websites that belong to the government or educational institutions and academic databases.
