What is Scientific Writing

A scientific paper is a written report describing original research results.  They are written in a specific format so that the data is easy to find and retrieve, and so that others can replicate the study.  A scientific paper consists of six parts: title, abstract, introduction, materials and methods, results, and discussion.
