Typical structure of a journal article

Typical structure of a journal article


Title

first idea of what it's about

Abstract

brief summary: purpose, method, findings, conclusions. Emphasize the original contributions.

Introduction

purpose of study, a statement of your hypothesis or specific question to be explored, how it fits with previous research

Method/Procedures

how the study was carried out

Findings/Results

what was found

Discussion/Conclusion

what was learned and how it can be applied to future research


Suggested Order For Writing:

The easiest way to determine your main idea and contribution is by writing your discussion section first. After confirming your terminology and methods, write your conclusion. Write the introduction next. Finally, use the topic sentence from each paragraph and create an abstract. If your abstract does not capture your purpose, method, findings, conclusions, and original contributions, rewrite your topic sentences.
