Writing a Paper
Writing a paper is now a necessity in college. I’ve been writing a paper for five years now, and the idea of writing a paper was always thinking about how to write a little better. I wrote my first paper in the second year of my major, and no one taught me how to write it, and my professors were busy with clinical work and I couldn’t afford a proper paper. Looking back now, it seems that most teachers were reviewers at that time. I’m still trying to write my research paper and study it, but I hope that it will be helpful to those who are writing for the first time or who are worried about writing the paper. I want to summarize.
How to Write a Paper?
This is a personal taste difference. But most of the time, the Method section starts here because you can just list mechanically without thinking about your method. I usually write the large form in the following order: Method> Create Figure & Table> Result> Introduction> Discussion> Abstract. In fact, once you list individual parts, you can use whatever part you think. And as you paint over and over again, the paper gradually takes shape. Many writers repeat their work for a single article, but it is a great challenge to try to write out a paper at once.
In fact, in many books and lectures, The introduction tells us to write in inverted triangles. In other words, start with the most general content and write more and more specific content. In my experience, it’s easier to say that the introduction is the base of the paper. In other words, it’s easy to understand that I’ve done this research, and I want to communicate what I’m going to talk about later on. What I need to know is that it’s underpinning the existing prior research needed to emphasize that my research is so important. It’s a good idea to start with the biggest stream of water and write a natural transition to what I want to talk about.
This part is almost like a formula. It is easiest to use if you modify it a little by referring to the method part of similar research done by others.
You have to draw a big picture and build a board around the most important content. How do I show my results more effectively, and how do other good papers display the results? In that sense, it is of utmost importance to utilize tables and figures efficiently.
There is also a big formula to write the Discussion section, which is why I reiterate why my research results are important, a more detailed interpretation of the Results section, the limitations of the research, and further research or research needed. If you write about the implications and so on, it seems to take some form.
This is the most important because it is the same as the face in the thesis. Most people see the abstract and do not look at the text in detail, so they do the same thing. You must pass the qualifying round to be evaluated on the final. Therefore, it supports every goal. In fact, it is the part that is the most tried, and it is the easiest and the most difficult because it must contain all the research content within 250 ~ 300 words.
This is what most people overlook. Originally, the Corresponding Author writes and submits it. Most of the professors in the major seem to have asked you to write it out. So, most of the time I wrote and formatted the letter. The cover letter is really important.
Anyway, when writing a paper, think ahead of the rest of the reviewers’ expectations and plant in advance the elements that will defend your position. After you finish your paper, it’s helpful to think from the reviewer’s perspective and do a virtual review ahead of time.
