Scientific papers are for sharing your own original research work with other scientists or for reviewing the research conducted by others.As such, they are critical to the evolution of modern science, in which the work of one scientist builds upon that of others.To be accepted by referees and cited by readers, papers must do more than simply present a chronological account of the research work.Rather, they must convince their audience that the research presented is important, valid, and relevant to other scientists in the same field.The traditional Results and Discussion sections are best combined because results make little sense to most readers without interpretation.When reporting and discussing your results, do not force your readers to go through everything you went through in chronological order.To reach their goal, papers must aim to inform, not impress.They must be highly readable — that is, clear, accurate, and concise.
Consider anchoring the context in time, using phrases such as recently, in the past 10 years, or since the early 1990s.
One elegant way to express the desired part of the need is to combine it with the task in a single sentence.
This sentence expresses first the objective, then the action undertaken to reach this objective, thus creating a strong and elegant connection between need and task.
Thus, as you organize the body of your paper into sections and perhaps subsections, remember to prepare your readers for the structure ahead at all levels. To make this section interesting, explain the choices you made in your experimental procedure: What justifies using a given compound, concentration, or dimension?
You already do so for the overall structure of the body (the sections) in the object of the document at the end of the Introduction. What is special, unexpected, or different in your approach?
