Using the Five-Paragraph Rule For Writing a Research Brief


When presenting a research, whether as a thick, detailed report or on a live conference, the research brief is a necessary document to give the audience a taste of what they can expect. And the classic five-paragraph format is an excellent way to present it.

Paragraph 1: Introduction. In the first paragraph, your goal should be to list down the problem, explain why it is a challenge and provide the solution. Additionally, you will need to tell the reader why it should be relevant to them, boiling down your contributions to its bare essential

Paragraph 2: Background. Here, you elaborate on the challenges of the subject, briefly examining prior work and hinting at a couple of issues in them that you work is able to address.

Paragraph 3: Transition. In the transition to your actual research, you can give the reader what special insight or process you applied in overcoming the limitations of previous work.

Paragraph 4: Details. Here, you give a brief explanation of the actual research, stating the technical challenges you encountered, along with the different things you did to validate your output.

Paragraph 5: Assessment. To close the brief, assess your results and share the conclusions that your results manage to support. Keep it succinct, touching on the more interesting ones and leaving the rest for later.

As always, you want to print a final version of the research brief with as much polish and clarity as can be provided by a formal writing software. So make sure you give it a pass.
