Introduction, conclusion, body is the structure of a decent article. Of course, it can be done differently, but that's the most common structure for an article. As you can see, the structure of an outline is almost identical to that of an article. Once you get into the habit of outlining your articles, you'll be able to write them much more efficiently.

How to outline your paper?

First, take a look at the assignment requirements. The requirements usually include the length of the assignment (number of words or number of pages), title/topic, and sometimes even format (APA, MLA). The topic generally gives you a good idea how to start outlining your paper. If you can't find any specific requirements in the assignment itself, follow these steps:

Read the entire assignment carefully. You can take notes while reading if you think that will help you remember the main ideas. Can you see any patterns? The topics may repeat themselves throughout the assignment. Are there any terms that are used over and over again? Are there certain themes that are mentioned throughout the reading material? Write down all these keywords or patterns so you can use them in your outline.

After you've gathered all the necessary information about your paper, you can start creating an outline. Start by creating a list of all the points you need to cover in your article. Create an outline for each point in your list. Keep in mind that your outline needs to have a logical order. Smaller paragraphs are easier to organize in an orderly manner than one enormous paragraph. This is why it's important to break down longer paragraphs into smaller ones when possible.

The outline doesn't necessarily have to be in APA format in order for it to be considered an outline. However, choosing APA format for your article makes it much easier to organize your thoughts because APA format provides a clear structure to follow when writing your paper.

Now you know how to create an outline for an article, which means you also know how to create an outline for anything else! Just follow these 5 simple steps: Identify the topic, read through the assignment carefully, gather all necessary information, create an outline based on that information, and do whatever you can to stay organized!
