How to publish a Research Paper

IJRP guides you for writing a research paper starting from inception of ideas till their publications. Research papers are highly recognized in scholar fraternity. In addition, the published research work also provides a big weight-age to career growth and helps to get admission in reputed varsity. Now, here we enlist the proven steps to publish the research paper in a journal. 

Steps to write a Research Paper

Essentially a research paper consists of five major sections. The number of pages may vary depending upon the topic of research work but generally comprises up to 5 to 10 pages. These are:

  1. Abstract

  2. Introduction

  3. Research Elaborations

  4. Results or Finding

  5. Conclusions

 

  1. Abstract:

    • An abstract is a brief summary of a research article, thesis, review, conference proceeding or any in-depth analysis of a particular subject or discipline, and is often used to help the reader quickly ascertain the paper's purpose. When used, an abstract always appears at the beginning of a manuscript, acting as the point-of-entry for any given scientific paper or patent application.
  2. Introduction:

    • It's the foremost preliminary step for proceeding with any research work writing. While doing this go through a complete thought process of your Journal subject and research for it's viability by following means: 
      1. Read already published work in the same field. 

      2. Goggling on the topic of your research work. 

      3. Attend conferences, workshops and symposiums on the same fields or on related counterparts. 

      4. Understand the scientific terms and jargon related to your research work. 

  3. Research Elaborations: Now it is the time to articulate the research work with ideas gathered in above steps by adopting any of below suitable approaches:
    Bits and Pieces together: In this approach combine all your researched information in form of a journal or research paper. In this researcher can take the reference of already accomplished work as a starting building block of its paper.
    Jump Start: This approach works the best in guidance of fellow researchers. In this the authors continuously receives or asks inputs from their fellows. It enriches the information pool of your paper with expert comments or up gradations. And the researcher feels confident about their work and takes a jump to start the paper writing.
    Use of Simulation software: There are numbers of software available which can mimic the process involved in your research work and can produce the possible result. One of such type of software is Matlab. You can readily find Mfiles related to your research work on internet or in some cases these can require few modifications. Once these Mfiles are uploaded in software, you can get the simulated results of your paper and it easies the process of paper writing. 
  4. Results or Finding: This section also have more details about your research in continuation with above section. 
  5. Conclusions: This section will have conclusions about your research. 

    As by adopting the above practices all major constructs of a research paper can be written and together compiled to form a complete research ready for Peer review.

 

How to avoid plagiarism?

Plagiarism is the representation of another person's original work, ideas, thoughts, and words as one's own without crediting the source. It is an act of fraud whether done deliberately or unknowingly. If your research paper or thesis contains information from other sources, it is very important to mention the source of information in your paper by using internal citation. Failing to do so properly may catch you into the plagiarism trap. A person can never develop good writing skills if he or she does not try to create their own piece of work. A person's career or reputation is very valuable to lose over a moment work of carelessness and weakness. You should ensure that your paper is original or well cited before handing it for publication. 

It is very simple to enclose more and more information in your research paper, but it is very difficult to avoid plagiarism. Plagiarism is a major problem even if it is done unintentionally. You can easily avoid plagiarism by following some simple steps. 

Citing sources

Reference made to the source you have consulted and mentioned in your work while wring a research paper is citation. It is one of the effective methods to avoid the allegations of plagiarism. It also shows that you have done thorough study on the literature of your topic of research therefore increasing the credibility of your work. It is the proper way of including sources in your research paper at the same time avoiding any disputes. 

Avoiding self-plagiarism

If you are using the information you have used earlier yourself in your own articles, research papers etc. it still needs to be cited to avoid self-plagiarism. 

Paraphrasing

Restating someone else's ideas or thoughts in your own words is called paraphrasing. If you have found relevant information which you want to include in your research you should put it in your own words without changing the content. Changing one or two words of the original sentence will not make it a paraphrase. Also the paraphrase still needs to be cited as only the sentence structure is changed but not the ideas. 

Quoting

When you are using a quote you should not try to change it as no one wants to be misquoted. Quoting should be done perfectly to avoid issues. 

Referencing

You should always include a reference page in your work to avoid plagiarism. Follow the proper format of the reference page and try to mention all the sources you have used in your paper. 

The source from which you are using information must be acknowledged properly. If you are unable to cite the sources properly or not sure about something you should always consult an expert before submitting your work. It is very important to adopt the habit of citing sources. 

If you don't cite the source of an argument or statement made in your paper, it may raise concerns about the integrity of your paper. It also brings into readers notice that you have not done thorough review or research of the literature of the research problem of your thesis. It is very helpful to use a plagiarism checker to check for it and ensure that your work is original and well cited. Authors must adhere to the originality of their research work for getting their work easily published and recognised.
