  2. 2. Types of articles Literature Review Development of a theory Presentation of research results  I only write this third type of paper so this is what I am going to discuss
  3. 3. Presenting research results Components of the paper  Introduction (2-3 paragraphs)  Overview of the literature and development of the research question or hypothesis  Data and Methods  Results  Discussion  Conclusion
  4. 4. Introduction and Literature Review Introduction (2-3 paragraphs)  What is purpose of the paper? Why is it important? Overview of the literature and development of the research question or hypothesis  What is already known about this topic?  What remains to be learned?  What will this study do to address the gap in the literature?  What theory will this study apply to this research problem?  What specific hypothesis will the study test?
  5. 5. Data and Methods Data  What kind of data does this paper use to test its research questions? For instance:  Surveys were distributed and collected  An experiment was conducted Methods  How were the data analyzed?  How were important concepts be measured?  What are the variables?  How does the analysis test the hypothesis?  How will you know whether or not you have supported the hypothesis?
  6. 6. Results Present results in tables that have all information on the table  Table of descriptive statistics is very common  Table of analysis that tests hypothesis Review the results in the text  Spell out the results and state which findings were significant (statistically) and which were not State whether or not the hypothesis was supported  Apply the results to the original research question
  7. 7. Discussion and Conclusion Summarize the results  Brief summary Discuss what the results may mean  Interpret the results; reflect on what they mean  Present limitations of the study  Do the limitations mean the results cannot be trusted OR  Are the results still trustworthy even though they are limited?  Suggest directions for future research Conclude by stating what you found and why it matters
  8. 8. Selecting a journal Search for academic journals in your subject area Read about the journals’ “Aims and Scope” to see if your paper fits within them Look over other articles published in a given journal to see if your article would fit Once you pick a journal, follow the “Instructions for Authors” VERY carefully!
  9. 9.
