An Outline for Quantitative Research Papers



I propose an outline for quantitative research papers. This is a difficulty I often observe in people starting a research career, particularly PhD students. Thus, I believe this outline might help to create a mental map of the work associated to writing a paper, as well as preparing the work necessary to write it. The proposed outline is by no means definitive and rigid. These are general guidelines that should be adapted to specific situations. I have further details on the topic of writing scientific papers in a tutorial I created on that subject (Paiva, 2013). It can be downloaded from my webpage at http://rppaiva. - how to write.pdf.
