How to read a research article?

How to read research articles?

Research articles are valuable information sources for academic purposes.

  • Original research articles report the results of the original research.
  • Review articles summarize the results and conclusions from multiple original research articles.
  • Peer reviewed articles are closely examined by a panel of reviewers who are experts on the article's topic to ensure the article's quality.

Start reading a research article by skimming the following sections:

  • Abstract: tells briefly what was done and what was found.
  • Introduction: explains motivation and importance of research and provides background information by describing and explaining the prior research.
  • Methods: gives details on how the experiment was set up and carried out.
  • Results: provide the raw data. Figures and tables provide the data in a compact format for easy viewing.
  • Discussion: summarizes important results and gives reasons  for conclusions.
  • References / Bibliography: allows you find the sources used and evaluate whether those sources seem reliable and accurate.
