A textbook written by physicist
a newspaper article written by a biologist
Laboratory notes written by a chemist
A scientific journal article written by a biologist
By citing as many references as possible
By describing past work and how their results fit in
By using established methods to conduct their research
By separating the raw data from their interpretation
To provide a concise summary of the work
So the abstract can be included in search databases
So the importance of the work can be quickly assessed
All of these answers are correct.
Materials and Methods
Scientific journals have many more readers than magazines.
Only other scientists are interested in reading about research.
Journals review articles more rigorously and tend to be focused on one specialty.
Research must be shown to be correct before the wider population can read it.
It creates an archive that we reference.
It makes finding information easier
It helps other scientists reproduce the research.
All of the above.
Give us a research project to retry.
Provide information that we can use in our own project.
Tell us the proven facts about our subject.
Show us what has been done and what to avoid researching.
