Potential readers will often turn to the discussion section of a research paper to determine whether the work is relevant to use and cite in their own, so you want to catch and hold their attention.
An excellent research paper should impress readers with your knowledge and understanding as much as it informs and interests them, and such a paper will be a boon to both your scholarly community and your career once it is published.
This approach also reduces repetition and excessive detail, promoting a concise and accessible text.
Do pay attention to exactly what and how you are writing.
The section dedicated to methodology is often a perfect place to begin because it demands a factual description of exactly what you did that can serve as an effective tool for establishing a flow of text about your work.
Reporting the results or findings of research is usually much easier if tables and figures for presenting data are designed first and then used and refined as the section is written.
Original research into a current problem that uses sound methods to obtain meaningful results and arrive at useful answers will provide the right kind of material, but that material must also be presented in a clear and logical manner that tells an engaging research story.
Most academic and scientific journals will outline the structure they expect in a research paper, and some will even lay out exactly what information should appear in each section.
In the absence of such detailed instructions, research papers previously published by the journal should be consulted as models of successful structure and content.
You may even find some articles that could be usefully cited in your own paper, enabling you to enter the intellectual conversations taking place in the journal.
