Writing Science Project Research Papers: A Step-by-Step Approach.
This guide is intended to be a manual for directing students in the formal presentation of science-project research. Because the results of science research are expected to be presented in an understandable form that persuades the reader that the conclusions drawn from the experimentation are correct, it is important that students follow established formats in their writing. To be convincing, papers should be clear, concise, and accurate. The guide contains guidelines for the eight distinct sections that are usually part of a scientific paper: (1) title page; (2) abstract; (3) introduction; (4) method; (5) results; (6) discussion and conclusions; (7) bibliography; and (8) acknowledgements. The content and purpose of each section is described. Additional suggestions, hints, and samples of award-winning papers are discussed. Guidelines for submitting papers to the "Journal of High School Science Research," and the addresses of where to send papers are included. (MDH)
