Research Paper

Here are some materials that will help with writing a research paper for Geology courses at Humboldt State University. I include a writing guide, an example research paper, and the source materials for the example research paper. Dr. Lisa A. Rossbacher and Dr. Dallas D. Rhodes have provided their Style Manual for Writing in Geology (<0.1 MB pdf). I encourage everyone to download this writing guide to use for all geology papers and reports.

    Main Documents:

  • Here is the research paper writing guide.
  • Here is the example research paper (in pdf format).
  • Here is the example research paper (in docx format). Feel free to use this document to help you with formatting your report.
