This, as easy as it sounds, is the toughest part of writing any paper as most authors fail to pinpoint the exact focus or prime objective of their research. 2. Brainstorming all the ideas that the author might have about the topic is another good method to pertinently elaborate the exact topic of research.

The Purpose Of An Outline
Delineating the steps for your essay is essentially what is termed as creating an outline for your research paper.

An outline is usually necessary where there are large amounts of data and information involved such as in a research paper.
