The title summarizes the main ideas of your research. A good title contains a few words to adequately describe the main content and main purpose of your research paper. The title must be simple, direct, accurate, appropriate, specific, functional, concise/brief, unambiguous, informative, unique, and it should not be misleading.


An abstract summarizes the major aspects of the entire paper in a prescribed sequence. It should reflect the contents of the main text of the paper accurately, highlight the selling point of the manuscript, and succeed in luring the reader to read the complete. The main part of an abstract is the purpose of the study, the methodology design of the study, major findings or trends found as a result of your analysis, and the originality which allows your research to be distinct from the existing literature. The supporting part of an abstract in a research limitation for further research to cover, a brief summary of the practical and social implications of your research.


The introduction should outline the aims of your paper, as well as describe why the topic is important and what it contributes to the body of knowledge. It establishes the scope, context, and significance of the research being conducted by summarizing current understanding and background information about the topic, stating the purpose of the work in the form of the research problem supported by a hypothesis or a set of questions, explaining briefly the methodological approach used to examine the research problem, highlighting the potential outcomes your study can reveal, and outlining the remaining structure and organization of the paper.

Literature Review

The literature review provides an analysis and generalization of relevant works (papers, monographs, reports, theses, etc.), which describe the essence of the problem and/or give an understanding of the previous efforts to solve it. The Literature Review should comply with the aim of the research (“fitness for purpose”) and represent the results of a critical analysis of the analytical base for testing the research hypothesis. The literature review must not be limited only by works, which were published in the country where the author lives and works (the problem should be studied globally). Particularly it concerns the authors from non-English speaking countries (they are recommended to thoroughly analyze the works published in English).

Research Methods

The writing should be direct and precise and always written in the past tense.

Result and Discussion

The result and discussion section are the main part of the author's contribution to the research by providing a report in the form of an explanation of the findings of the research-based upon the methodology you applied to gather information. The results section should state the findings of the research arranged in a logical sequence without bias or interpretation. A section describing results is particularly necessary if your paper includes data generated from your own research. The purpose of the discussion is to interpret and describe the significant findings of the research considering what was already known about the research problem being investigated and to explain any new understanding or insights that emerged as a result of the research process to answer of the problem. The discussion will always connect to the introduction by way of the research questions or hypotheses you posed and the literature you reviewed.


The conclusion should summarize the main state of the findings at the point of writing and consider the next steps. This section also the synthesis key points of the result and, if applicable recommend new areas for future research.
