Anatomy of a Research Article

Click here or on the image below for an interactive view of the elements of a scholarly research article. A research article has relatively reliable structure that allows readers to learn who did they study and what their credentials are, why the study was done, how the study was done, what was learned, and what else there is to research on the topic. The authors cite the prior research they read to learn about the topic both within the article (in-text citations) and at the end (the list of references).
