When studying at higher levels of school and throughout college, you will likely be asked to prepare research papers. A research paper can be used for exploring and identifying scientific, technical and social issues. If it's your first time writing a research paper, it may seem daunting, but with good organization and focus of mind, you can make the process easier on yourself. Writing a research paper involves four main stages: choosing a topic, researching your topic, making an outline, and doing the actual writing. The paper won't write itself, but by planning and preparing well, the writing practically falls into place. Also, try to avoid plagiarism.
BIS researchers collaborate extensively with researchers in academia, central banks and other policy institutions. The BIS operates a range of visiting programmes for researchers, including the Lamfalussy Senior Research Fellowship for long-term visits by resident scholars, the BIS Research Fellowships for short-term collaborative visits by academics and the Central Bank Research Fellowship programme for visits by researchers from member central banks . In addition, the BIS organises conferences to galvanise research in emerging areas of policy interest, and serves as the hub for the BIS Research Network which brings together researchers in central banks and in academia for regular meetings on monetary and financial stability issues.
