  • What is basic structure?
  • Well, a bit more than this……
  • Typical of most research articles. Makes writing easier; specific information in specific sections.
  • Most read part of article
  • About patient whose bromide intoxication was caused by contaminated well water.
  • Second most read part of article Good abstract indicates good article Important because of abstracting services
  • Headings like manuscript
  • Must draw readers in Draft intro when you begin research (why did you start?)
  • Questions?
