Structure of Imrad in Scopus and Web of Science scientific articles
Many international journals recommend using the structure Imrad while writing a research paper. This structure is the most common style of article design, especially the ScopusWeb of Science journals adhere to this structure, and therefore publishing articles in a scientific journal is possible only if all elements are represented in each of them.
What Imrad's structure looks like
The article must have a title that conveys the essence of the work. After the abstract is presented, which allows you to interest the reader in the scientific work, and to understand whether it is necessary to continue reading. The abstract should be short and clear, there is no unnecessary information, and only the chapters and appendices of the article are presented.
An introductory section or introduction in which the scholar explains to the reader what justifies the interest in the topic of the article and why the paper was written. This section describes the terminology and acronyms. It is worth noting that the introduction should not be a repetition of the abstract. The task of the introduction is to present to the reader why the paper was written scientific article (scientific publication).
An important element is a description of the methods used to achieve the purpose of the study. This describes the experiment itself, as well as what methods and tools were used to conduct it.
In the results part of the scientific article, the author describes his achievements during the research. The "results" part should be derived from the "introduction" and "materials and methods," which describe how the authors of the article arrived at these results.
In the next section, the "discussion" explains how one arrived at these results and what their implications are. This is the unifying section, and it demonstrates the importance and value of the work done. In this regard, what is difficult to write and scientific publications.
The final part is "conclusions," where the results of the study are formulated and future research directions are suggested, which may be based on the results obtained in the published article.
It is worth noting that it is important not only to write the article itself, to make accurate calculations or research, but also to correctly compile a list of used sources and literature. Since after the hard work, the author of the article has no desire to still be engaged in writing out all the accuracies, used materials. Therefore, authors can use some programs and online services to simplify this task.
