Addiction Research Paper Writing Help

Addiction is a wide-ranging subject. Usually the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word is drugs, but alcohol and tobacco are also highly addictive and it’s now known that people can become addicted to non-chemical things like gambling and pornography. Many aspects of addiction are hot news topics, so it’s not surprising that it often comes up as an essay subject. This guide is aimed at helping you produce the right essay.

Remember which course you are on.

It’s a good idea to remember which course you are on. Obviously most of us remember this pretty easily - or at least we think we do - but it’s worth bearing in mind as you do your research, because the sheer volume of material you can consult is vast and you will have to be selective about what you use. A paper produced by a psychology student can and should be very different from one written by a student of pharmacology or sociology; each field is interested in different aspects of addiction, so if you’re working for a degree in biochemistry you may want to focus a little more on chemical interactions with the central nervous system and a bit less on street crime by heroin addicts.

Placing limits

The title of the essay and the nature of the course influence the emphasis of the essay. It’s well worth brainstorming a few subheadings before you begin your research. It helps to avert the feeling of panic that affects many people at the start of a project. At the same time, consider the limits you will place on your essay.

  • Are you considering the social impact of addiction?
  • What about the biochemical mechanisms involved?
  • What about the treatment and management of addiction?
  • Physiological damage and complications?

Being able to discard sources quickly will save you time, when using search engines. The biochemistry student searching for sources on opiates is probably going to make life a lot easier by excluding those that also include the words “Xanadu” or “Marx”.

The joy of stationary

Some people do feel they may have a stationery addiction, but those colored pens and pastel colored notepads can actually help to avoid unintentional plagiarism. It can be tempting to copy phrases or whole sentences from your sources, but unless you are going to put them in quotation marks, don’t. Making your own notes as you read the sources, with lots of arrows and spider diagrams, is a good way to make sense of the material and also lets you keep track of what needs to be included as a quote and what is your own words.
