Explanation of researcher question

Background information

Publications where scientists explain their research and findings are called journal articles. These articles include information on the research topic (what is currently known and the question the scientist is trying answer), the research methodology, and any results, which are used to answer the question. In the article, this information is organized into the following sections:

Title:short statement that describes the question being answered

Abstract:summary of the article

Introduction:introduces the article and contains current information on what is known about the topic, which will lead to further explanation of the researchers question

Methods:how the study was performed

Results:data from the study usually includes tables and graphs

Discussion/Conclusion:interprets the results relating to the original question

References:list of literary sources used in the article
