It is way too different than the rest of the research papers, the core difference between them is the nature of the content. The theme is altogether different from conventional academic research writing.
The nature of this research paper demands a writer to jot down his personal experiences in a way that it doesn’t look like narrating a story. Students who are studying mass communication are often faced with this assignment because there is not much research involved. If there is no mechanism of research then there is no thesis statement which makes it a lot easier. However, sharing personal experience make things so easy that an individual can understand the thesis and its message properly. Because the researcher tries to explain his or her experience in simple words without any jargon. Therefore this mechanism plays an important role to convert the message to the reader efficiently.
So, there is nothing difficult in writing the paper, all you have to do is think about yourself and your experiences and take out one which is interesting enough to engage a reader in the paper. Have you noticed that in a standard research paper first-person voice is rarely used while the whole research paper on autobiography is based on first-person voice including, “I”, “ME” and “MY”? The first-person voice is used especially when you need to express your own feeling about a particular subject so mostly it is preferred in such types of papers.
There is no hard and fast rule about prohibiting research work, the whole process depends on the nature and demand of the topic for research paper on an autobiography. For example; if you have to write about your personal experiences about Egypt then obviously you should know everything about Egypt and for this, he or she can conduct research work for the country as well.
To make it simpler to understand, autobiographical research paper is all about a person’s life or his own autobiography. It will be much easier if a writer is focused on one theme related to his life and write the whole paper on it. He or she can easily craft a topic by focusing on aspects of life, for example; he can either write on his childhood memories as told earlier, on his school life, on his college or university life. In this way, one can divide his life into various stages and then decide which stage should be elaborated in his autobiographical research paper.
Thereby, as you have the basic knowledge required to write your paper now you can easily commence composing the research paper in no time.
