A Brief Experience: Discussion Papers

Ah, papers. Whether you’re a student working through your third cup of coffee, or a professor scanning note after note to ensure a timely and accurate report, you can never be able to truly escape papers. And by that, I specifically mean research papers. There are many kinds, of course, and methods may differ depending on what type it is, but either way, most of it is still the same.

Right now, I’m with a group in the middle of creating a discussion paper. It’s honestly nearly the same as a typical research paper, but there are some things it does not have that the latter has. That makes things sort of easier for us, but we still aren’t set to properly finish it.

Like any other group, we came across some frustrations – still do – as we perform our tasks for the benefit of all. We try and solve any disputes through communication so it doesn’t fester and eventually damage our group as a whole.

Overall, my experience with writing discussion papers remains the same as with writing research papers: stressful, but informative and helpful.
