Mention three to five keywords representing the main content of the article.


The introduction should explain the background of the study, its aims, a summary of the existing literature and why this study was necessary.

literature review

A literature review is a survey of scholarly sources on a specific topic. It provides an overview of current knowledge, allowing you to identify relevant theories, methods, and gaps in the existing research. A literature review involves collecting, evaluating and analyzing publications such as books and journal articles that relate to your research question and depending on the situation, the literature review may evaluate the sources and advise the reader on the most pertinent or relevant.


The objective is the purpose of the entire paper, not the entire paper itself. The objectives should reflect the main thrust of your paper, not delve into the nitty-gritty details.

Research methodology

The methodology describes the broad philosophical underpinning to your chosen research methods, including whether you are using qualitative or quantitative methods, or a mixture of both, and why. You should be clear about the academic basis for all the choices of research methods that you have made. It should answer two main questions: How was the data collected or generated? And, how was it analyzed? The writing should be direct and precise and always written in the past tense.


Data Analysis

Data analysis is an executive technical summary of the results got from a series of tests and experiments that are well written by the research paper writing help. It involves a review of gathered information for research and interpretation of the data collected using logical and analytical reasoning to determine trends, patterns, and relationships. Typically, the data analysis section of a research paper is divided into four main parts; description of preparing data, descriptive statistics resulting from experimental studies, inferential statistics from qualitative analysis and quantitative studies that explain the findings and sums up the conclusion

Findings / Result

The Results section of a scientific research paper represents the core findings of a study derived from the methods applied to gather and analyze information. It presents these findings in a logical sequence without bias or interpretation from the author, setting up the reader for later interpretation and evaluation in the Discussion section. A major purpose of the Results section is to break down the data into sentences that show its significance to the research question(s).

Discussion / Main Body 

For research articles, this section should discuss the implications of the findings in the context of existing research and highlight the limitations of the study. For methodology manuscripts, this section should include a discussion of any practical or operational issues involved in performing the study and any issues not covered in other sections.

For reviews, this should contain the body of the article, and may also be broken into subsections with short, informative headings. For case studies, this should describe the pros and the cons of the intervention, with a realistic evaluation of its feasibility and effectiveness.

Recommendations / Suggestions 

The recommendations that you introduce in your research paper are essential to the plans you have to move your field of study forward. Recommendations are the added suggestions that you want people to follow when performing future studies. These are based on what you have found or what you might be interested in doing at some point in the future.

If the paper is based on the case studies then the conclusion should state what was learned, what the next steps should be, and, if possible, what contingency planning may be required for those steps.

It contains helpful tips for all research stakeholders that are relevant to the topic and can help them improve it.
