Research Tips

  • Analyse writing in journals in your field

    Take a couple of journals in your field that you will target now or soon. Scan all the abstracts over the past few issues. Analyse them: look closely at all first and last sentences. The first sentence (usually) gives the rationale for the research, and the last asserts a 'contribution to knowledge'.

  • Do an outline and just write

    Outlining and just writing are useful, and it is therefore a good idea to make your outline very detailed: outline the main sections and calibrate these with your target journal. To summarise, overview, critique, define, introduce, conclude etc.

  • Get feedback from start to finish

    Even at the earliest stages, discuss your idea for a paper with four or five people, get feedback on your draft abstract. It will only take them a couple of minutes to read it and respond. Do multiple revisions before you submit your article to the journal.


IJIREST - The International Journal of Innovative Research in Engineering Science and Technology is an online journal published in English at a frequency of quarterly. This IJIREST publish peer reviewed research and review articles of Interdisciplinary fields rapidly without any delay.

The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential requirement in the development of a knowledge network. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society of society-owned or sponsored journals.
