The main purpose of a scientific paper is to report new results, usually experimental, and to relate these results to previous knowledge in the field. Papers are one of the most important ways that we communicate with one another.
In understanding how to read a paper, we need to start at the beginning with a few preliminaries. We then address the main questions that will enable you to understand and evaluate the paper. The primary objective of a scientific paper is to disclose new findings, the majority of which are the product of experiments, and to establish how these findings relate to the body of prior knowledge in the subject area. The exchange of written information is among the most vital aspects of our social interactions.
Organization of a paper
In most scientific journals, scientific papers follow a standard format. They are divided into several sections, and each section serves a specific purpose in the paper. We first describe the standard format, then some variations on that format.Trial of Autologous Mesenchymal Stem Cells
