Instead of: An increased appetite was manifested by the rats and an increase in body weight was measured.
Write: The rats ate more and gained weight.
Different journals have different rules about number of copies of papers to submit, how to prepare figures and tables, whether to include other information supplementary to your paper, whether all the authors have to sign the letter of submission (known as the cover letter ) or just one, and so on.
6. How did you answer this question? There should be enough information here to allow another scientist to repeat your experiment. Look at other papers that have been published in your field to get some idea of what is included in this section.
The body of the Results section is a text-based presentation of the key findings which includes references to each of the Tables and Figures. The text should guide the reader through your results stressing the key results which provide the answers to the question(s) investigated. A major function of the text is to provide clarifying information. You must refer to each Table and/or Figure individually and in sequence (see numbering sequence ), and clearly indicate for the reader the key results that each conveys. Key results depend on your questions, they might include obvious trends, important differences, similarities, correlations, maximums, minimums, etc.
Like the APA manual, the CSE manual is most often regarded by writers as an encyclopedia of arcane formatting rules, but it does contain a good deal of information about science writing in general. (Note that this used to be called the CBE Manual the organization that produces it was formerly called the Council of Biology Editors.)

Computers can 8767 t, however, decide for you how your graph really works you have to know how to design your graph to meet your readers 8767 expectations. Here are some of these expectations:
Other specific comments on style are also included for each section of the paper. Remember : precise word use, past tense, active voice, brevity.
One way ANOVA was used to compare mean weight gain in weight-matched calves fed the three different rations.
You should also be aware of which journals are publishing similar papers to yours, and whether the journal that you have selected has any rules that make it particularly easy or difficult for you to submit.
Scientific research articles provide a method for scientists to communicate with other scientists about the results of their research. A standard format is used for these articles, in which the author presents the research in an orderly, logical manner. This doesn't necessarily reflect the order in which you did or thought about the work. This format is:
Most journal-style scientific papers are subdivided into the following sections: Title , Authors and Affiliation , Abstract , Introduction , Methods , Results , Discussion , Acknowledgments , and Literature Cited , which parallel the experimental process. This is the system we will use. This website describes the style, content, and format associated with each section.
6. If you present your data in a table or graph, include a title describing what's in the table ( Enzyme activity at various temperatures , not My results.) For graphs, you should also label the x and y axes.
