Question:

How is writing for a newspaper article different from writing a research paper?

Inactive
Alexandra L.
Answer:

The main difference between newspaper articles and research papers are the order and the length. Newspaper articles are short and to-the-point. The most important information should be in the first two sentences, and the rest of the article should taper off in terms of important details. Research papers are long and thorough. The introduction sets up the topic, and the following paragraphs and sections address each pieces of evidence and how they fit together. The audience of a newspaper wants to get the most important information as quickly as possible. The audience of a research paper wants to read thorough facts and evidence with strong explanations.
