A research paper is a paper in which you provide information on a topic, provide a thesis statement on the topic, and  explain how the topic works.  If you are writing a paper on the five developmental system on how an individual interacts with their environment you will want to identify what these five systems are within the introduction and provide a thesis statement regarding your stance on these five systems. For example if you think one system better explains these interactions include this in your thesis statement and you will then discuss the pros and cons of each system within your paper.
