Exemplary research papers?

I teach a hands-on lab course on how to do research. Students perform a small research project and write a paper about it, preparing them for the research work of their final thesis.

I want to revise the set of example research papers I’m using. We study these research papers as good examples of how to perform and present research. (Think: “Best XYZ ever!”) So I thought I’d ask you: What research papers would you consider exemplary for these particular aspects of a paper:

  1. Paper Title
  2. Abstract
  3. Introduction
  4. Research Question
  5. Research Hypothesis
  6. Exploratory Research Methods
    • Ethnography
    • Exploratory Case Studies
    • Interview Analyses
  7. Confirmatory Research Methods
    • Surveys
    • Confirmatory Case Studies
    • Post-facto Data Analyses
  8. Related Work
  9. Conclusions

Papers are ideally short, well written, and fun to read, next to being exemplary. Thanks for any feedback!
