The main stages of scientific research paper:

1. The actualization of the problem (identify the problem and determine the direction of  future research).

2. To determine the scope of the study (to formulate the main questions, the answers to which we would like to find).

3. Selection of the research topic (try to define the boundaries of the research as strictly as possible)

4. Development of a hypothesis (to develop a hypothesis or hypotheses, including unrealistic provocative ideas should be expressed).

5. Identification and systematization of approaches to the solution (choose research methods).

6. Determine the sequence of the study.

7. Collection and processing of information (record the knowledge gained).

8. Analysis and synthesis of the materials obtained (to structure the material obtained using well-known logical rules and techniques).

9. Preparation of the report (to give definitions of basic concepts, to prepare a report on the results of the study).

10. Report (protect results publicly in front of colleagues and answer questions).

Preparation for the protection of scientific research paper:

1. Introduction:

  • Why was this topic chosen?
  • What are the questions, the challenges facing me?
  • The relevance of the chosen topic.
  • You can review the literature, the main sources used

2. A general overview of the content of the work:

  • “it was interesting to work on …” (Why?)
  • “experienced difficulties in performing …” (Why?)
  • what issues were considered in each paragraph of the main part (brief description)

3. Conclusion (summarize your activities):

  • show your work methods (theoretical and practical);
  • to analyze the results on achieving the goals and objectives set:

whether the tasks are completed, how much is completed, the answer is found or not, evaluate your contribution to the work.

  • work prospects: “the work is not finished on this and will be further developed by me in …”
  • relevance: where can I use this work?
  • what did you learn as a result of your work? (work with literature, conduct search work, select the necessary material from a large amount of information,
  • systematize information, arrange work according to the required standards …)
