    • How to read a scientific journal article
      Title:
      Short, succinct, eye-catching, all-encompassing
      Abstract:
      Summary of Methods, Results, and Discussion starting off with a statement of why the research was done and with emphasis on why the results are significant.
      Introduction:
      When was past work done, by whom, why was their work important, what you plan to do in your paper, and why what you did is important.
      Materials and Methods:
      How you did what you did and where you did it--nothing more.
      Results:
      Whatthe data show you--nothing more.
      Discussion: Why the data show what they show, and how your analysis relates back to your objectives from the Introduction.
      Note:
      Some journals will allow the Results and Discussion sections to be combined. In this case, the data should be divided up into logical groups, and for each group (generally separated by a subheading) the What and the why are presented together.
