Learn about the elements that organize a typical journal article and how to compose your work to help communicate your ideas more clearly.


The article’s title should be specific, concise, and descriptive to help readers decide if they should read the full article. Use keywords and short phrases to describe the article’s content in as few words as possible. Avoid terms such as “new” or “novel” since the reader already knows your research is new and worthy of publication.


Your abstract should provide a brief summary of the research conducted. The conclusions reached and the potential implications of those conclusions.

A strong abstract will also:

  • Consist of a single paragraph of up to 250 words, with correct grammar and unambiguous terminology
  • Be self-contained, without abbreviations, footnotes, references, or mathematical equations
  • Highlight what is novel in your work
  • Include 3-5 keywords or phrases that describe the research to help readers find your article

Most authors write the abstract last and edit it multiple times before article publication to ensure it accurately captures the entire article.

We recommend not including mathematical symbols in your article title or abstract because they may not display properly.


Using the right keywords in your article can make your article more easily and reliably discoverable—which leads to a broader readership for your article.


The introduction section includes a review of the existing literature to position your research within the broader scientific field and show your work's novelty. The introduction should also describe the question you’re trying to answer with your research and why that question is important to the field.


The methods section is a straightforward description of what you did in your research and how you did it. A detailed method section will make your article reproducible by other researchers, which helps others trust and build upon your work.


Ensure your mathematical equations and formulas display correctly in your published article. The equation can be made using the insert equation feature in Ms. Word feature.

Results and Discussion

The results section describes the results you obtained in your research. Include figures and tables as appropriate to illustrate your results. Figures can show data trends or other visual information. Tables are best to use when the exact values are important.

In the discussion section, please describe your results and how they contribute to the research field.


The conclusion section can highlight potential broader implications of your work and areas that need further study. Be careful not to inflate your findings.


The reference section is important because all scientific and technical research builds upon previous work. References help give proper credit and attribution to the preceding body of work. References also support and validate your hypothesis. Be sure to only cite references that directly support your work. Inflating citations by adding unnecessary references is considered a breach of publishing ethics.


You can recognize and thank those who have helped you publish this article in the acknowledgments section. Here you can thank your funder, someone who supported you during the research project, or the anonymous reviewers who evaluated the article.  The Acknowledgements section is optional but quite common.
