Writing research papers for academic journals requires a range of facets of related knowledge and skills, which include selecting appropriate titles, writing abstracts, finding suitable keywords, foregrounding aspects of the study with apprpriate backgrounds, discussing the research objectives and methodologies. All this culminates in an analysis of the findings, where ultimately the writer/researcher discusses the findings and brings the paper to a conclusion, including the insertion of reference.
Many academics conceptualize requirements for this, but the majority of papers submitted are generally rejected, or if accepted, major or minor changes are required.
