Checklist for a scientific research paper

Before you can write your paper, there are some things you should do. Here is a checklist:

Types of scientific research papers include sorties, lab reports, and formal research papers.

> Types of scientific research papers include sorties, lab reports, and formal research papers.

> A sortie is a type of paper that you would write to explain something you observed during a flight in an aircraft. You might use this type of paper to describe what you saw while flying over the Great Plains or over the ocean.

> A lab report is used when conducting an experiment in either an academic setting or at home with materials such as baking soda and vinegar (which combine to form carbon dioxide gas). This type of report has strict guidelines for formatting; it usually follows a standard format like APA style or Chicago style, which are each available through your school library or online resources such as Google Scholar™.

> A formal research paper includes both primary research (i.e., original data) and secondary research (i.e., findings derived from other sources). It’s also called “scholarly writing” because its intended audience is other experts in the field—not laypeople who want general knowledge about something!


The organization of the paper is important. In addition to helping a reader understand the paper, it should be clear and concise. The structure of your research paper should include a title page, introduction, methodology section (if applicable), results section (if applicable), discussion section (if applicable), conclusion(s) and reference page.

The main sections of a scientific research paper are:

Title of the Paper

The title of your paper will be the first thing readers see. They will use it to decide whether or not to read your work. Make it good! Fortunately, there are a few simple rules to follow when writing a title:


The abstract, which can be thought of as the summary of your paper, should be written last. Once you have completed writing your research paper, you will write a succinct overview of the whole research project. Your abstract should be 150 to 300 words in length and it must include:


The Introduction section of your paper should cover three main topics:


The methodology section is where you explain the steps you took to conduct your research, in a way that allows the reader to follow along. This section is similar to a lab report, with two main differences: it’s written for an audience of experts and you don’t need to include all the technical details.

For example, when describing how you collected data for your research (e.g., through interviews or observations), include only what needs to be included for readers who aren’t familiar with your field of study—and definitely don’t go into detail about how many participants were involved or how long it took! Instead, focus on explaining what information was gathered and summarize any important findings that came out of it.

It’s also important to explain why each step was necessary—for example: “We conducted interviews because we wanted participants’ firsthand accounts.”

Results and discussion

As mentioned above, the results and discussion section is where you will display the results of the research. You should keep in mind that this section isn’t just about displaying data but also about interpreting it. You can briefly present the data at first, then go into more detail about your interpretation of it later on.

This section is also a good place to compare the results of your study with other studies or experiments done by others related to your topic. If there are any other studies or experiments that contradict or support yours, make sure you address them here as well so as not to mislead readers into believing a false result was reached when it wasn’t necessarily true for every single person involved in this type of study/experimentation (remembering again: science is never 100% conclusive).

Conclusion and results


In conclusion, the research findings have shown that the following are true:

It would be useful to investigate whether there are any related effects of age on chin development or whether they’re more related to diet and lifestyle choices (like smoking). Such research could lead to new questions about factors affecting chin formation—for example, do different diets affect chin growth? Does smoking have an impact on chin size? Do some types of alcohol cause a change in facial structure? These questions could lead future studies into new areas of study.

That is how to write a scientific research paper

By now you should be well on your way to writing a scientific research paper. However, there are still many things that need to be done before you can call it finished. Let’s take a look at each of those steps in more detail:


Title of the Paper – A lot of people may see this as an unnecessary step but it is actually very important. You have to give your paper a title and make sure that it reflects what the topic is all about. It should also include keywords that relate to your topic so people can find it easily when they search for information on Google or other search engines like DuckDuckGo ( Abstract – This section should include an overview of what you want readers to know about your work before even reading any further into it (it’s similar conceptually with an Executive Summary). It will help them understand why they should read everything else below this point without having wasted much time themselves! Introduction – This section explains why there needs to be written research papers based upon previous knowledge we have accumulated over time using both qualitative and quantitative methods etc., which can make small contributions towards solving existing problems plaguing society today.”
