Scientific Research Article

Introduction
Completion of research article writing gives
immense satisfaction. However, to achieve this
satisfaction, considerable time, energy, and
mental presence is required. However, a
step-by-step approach towards the conclusion
reduces the burden and gives satisfactory results.

Inclusions of the Research Articles
  • Title Title is one of the important parts of the
    research article. It allows the reader to have an
    idea about the scope of the article and helps in
    attracting the target audience. The title allows
    database search engines to search for articles
    based on relevance.
  • Abstract The abstract should be clear, concise
    and provide the reader with an idea about the
    research article. The abstract is important
    because based on the abstract, the reader will
    decide whether to proceed for further reading the
    article.

  • Introduction In this section of the article, the
    writer should introduce the article and state its
    importance in improving current knowledge.
    Usefulness and novelty should be mentioned to
    increase the readers attention and interest.
  • Methods This section may be subdivided into
    various subheadings for better dissemination of
    information. Various subheadings are subjects,
    procedures, definitions and criteria, data
    collection and statistical tools applied to
    interpret the data.

5
  • Results Results should be organized in
    correspondence to the subheadings of the methods
    section. The author should progress from the
    simple outcomes to the more complex outcomes.
  • Discussion and conclusion In the discussion
    section, the author should discuss in detail the
    outcomes of the study and its relevance in
    context to the prior literature. The author may
    also discuss how this study will help in
    identifying and filling the scientific gap.

Preliminary Work
Writing a scientific research paper is not an
easy task. The process of writing does not only
include writing the research rather there are
certain other preliminary tasks to be conducted.
Here are some of the preliminary tasks along with
or before writing
7
  • The decision to writing the paper There is a
    saying Right beginning is half work done. The
    same applies to write the research article.
    Writing a research article is a tedious task and
    strong commitment and persistence will help to
    achieve the outcome.
  • Create a reference list Be clear about the
    message you want to convey to the reader. Based
    on the basics of your research, start searching
    for the relevant literature to be incorporated
    into your article.
  • Outlining the article Before start writing the
    article, prepare an outline ad various sections
    to be written. This will help you in focusing on
    one section and time.

8
  • Discuss with mentor or professional reviewer The
    article will reach the reviewer after you submit
    it to the journal. Thus, it would be wise to
    discuss the content of the article with a
    reviewer known to you. You may also seek advice
    from your mentor as he may have a lot of
    experience in publishing research articles.
  • Writing the draft In most cases, you may not be
    able to achieve the desired outcome. Revising the
    draft is key to the high-quality article. You
    should start by writing the first draft and
    revise the text at least twice. In the third
    draft, when your text gets accurate, you may
    incorporate the tables and figures.

9
Revising the Article
Revision of article, both initially and according
to the reviewers comments are important in
getting it published. After writing the final
draft, left the article for at least 10 days.
After 10 days, start reading, comprehending, and
revising the article.  The number of revisions
will surprise you which are required to make it
perfect. After receiving the comments of
reviewer/s, try to revise the article strictly as
per the comments.
10
Submitting the Article
The submission of the article in an appropriate
journal is the key to success. You should
maintain a balance between undervaluing and
overvaluing your paper. The article should be
written strictly as per the guidelines of the
target journal to reduce the chances of
rejection. You should select the target journal
based on the scope and area of your research.
11
Things to Take Care
  • Clearly understand the scope of your research.
  • Do not hesitate to take advice from a mentor and
    reviewer.
  • Provide considerable time for writing.
  • Revise the article according to the reviewers
    comments.
  • Do not forget to include relevant references.
