Research writing


Writing research is often more difficult than people expect.

Writing your reports will be assisted by keeping a thorough research journal and also allowing enough time to write the report.

Some successful researchers plan the outline of their report very early sometimes even determining what tables they will have in their report before they collect the data. The advance preparation of the Introduction and Methods report is intended to offer this sort of specific research outline.

A number of books are available that provide guidance on writing research results. Again, simply reading reports published in the journals relevant to your field may provide valuable insights.
