This resource outlines the generally accepted structure for introductions, body paragraphs, and conclusions in an academic argument paper. Keep in mind that this resource contains guidelines and not strict rules about organization. Your structure needs to be flexible enough to meet the requirements of your purpose and audience.
While most OWL resources recommend a longer writing process (start early, revise often, conduct thorough research, etc.), sometimes you just have to write quickly in test situations. However, these exam essays can be no less important pieces of writing than research papers because they can influence final grades for courses, and/or they can mean the difference between getting into an academic program (GED, SAT, GRE). To that end, this resource will help you prepare and write essays for exams.
Some thesauri, such as ROOT, interfile terms of different types in their hierarchical display. Indentation in such cases does not necessarily indicate a relationship. The relationships are shown in ROOT's alphabetical sequence, and it is unfortunate that they are not distinguished in the hierarchical one.
Because these abstract terms do not describe what the object is, they could be put into a field in the catalogue record labelled concept or subject, distinct from the field containing terms which name the object. I do not think that such a distinction will generally be helpful to users, however, and there seems to be no disadvantage in putting both types of term into a single field so that they can easily be searched as alternatives or in combination. Such a field would not be correctly called name and I therefore prefer to call it simply indexing terms or subject indexing terms.
Good computer software should allow you to search for "Jackets and all its narrower terms" as a single operation, so that it will not be necessary to type in all the possibilities if you want to do a generic search:
These OWL resources will help you understand and complete specific types of writing assignments, such as annotated bibliographies, book reports, and research papers. This section also includes resources on writing academic proposals for conference presentations, journal articles, and books.
Our main purpose is to provide a hierarchically-organized terminology for indexing and cataloging of biomedical information such as MEDLINE/PUBmed and other NLM databases. We also distribute pharmaceutical information through our RxNorm database, and manage the curation of the UMLS and SnoMed database.
The recommends that plural terms should be used, except for a few well-defined cases, and my view is that this practice should be followed. Unfortunately, there are many records in museum collections which have been given singular "object names", and the work of changing these to plurals in a move to a thesaurus structure may be so great as to require some compromise.
