The scientific paper is a written and published report describing original research results. A well-written scientific paper explains the scientist's motivation for providing a research, the research design and execution, and the meaning of the results.
The structure of the scientific paper should be as follows: Title, Abstract, Keywords, JEL Classification, Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussions, Conclusions, Acknowledgements, References (Supplementary Data).
Scientific papers are written in a style that is exceedingly clear and concise. Their purpose is to inform an audience about an important issue and to document the particular approach they used to investigate that issue. Avoid first person language and instead write using third person language. For example, replace “We determined that…” with “The authors determined that….”.
If English is not the researcher’s first language, then proofreading by a native speaker might be helpful.
