what are scientific papers
These guides are the result of a joint effort of the [email protected] project and the Colorado State University Writing Center. Development of these guides began in 1993, when the original Online Writing Center was developed for campus use at Colorado State University. Several guides were developed in Asymmetrix Multimedia Toolbook and then migrated to the web in 1996. Over the years, additional guides were developed and revised, reflecting the efforts of many writers and writing teachers. We thank them for their generosity. You can learn who developed a particular guide by clicking on the “contributors” link in that guide.
The following Writing Guides are available. To view guides, click on the list of catgories on the list below. You may view or hide descriptions of the guides.
Scientific publications must fulfill some criteria of being scientific. Readers are expected to have a critical scientific attitude. What has been published is not always true but must be proven true. Readers must be able to verify the contents. To guarantee the quality of scientific publications authors are expected to give an account of the work by
- listing all the used and cited sources (references), with full bibliographical information so that others can verify these.
- giving a full description of the methods used.
