How to write a scientific research paper:

Writing is easy. All you do is stare at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead. --- Gene Fowler

  • Experimental Biosciences From Rice University.  Includes resources for introductory and intermediate level laboratory courses
  • Writing a Scientific Research Paper - From Columbia University.   Provides strategies and tips as well as formatting.
  • Scientific Reports.  From UNC College of Arts and Sciences. Provides a general guide to writing reports about scientific research you’ve performed

What is scientific research?

Scientific research enables you to prove or disprove a hypothesis based on valid experimentation.

The authors' names (generally several people collaborate) and institutions are given so that they may be contacted for further discussion.

The studies usually consist of these parts, which are evident when you read a published scientific research article.

1. Abstract - this is a summary of the author's theory and how s/he went about proving (or disproving) it.

2. Introduction (this may be incorporated within the abstract)

3. Methodology (defines the study, subjects, experiment)

4. Results   (discusses the research results in detail)

5.Conclusion (was the thesis proven or disproven)

6. References (further information)
