College students are often expected to write research articles on a regular basis. Depending on their specific area of study, the manner in which these articles should be written may vary quite dramatically. Typically, students receive instructions on article topic, but no directions on the actual writing style itself. Typically, writing styles are classified as being focused on the humanities, sciences, or social sciences.
