Add Emphasis To Your Paper

If you read the first let’s say half page of a paper and then you have to you put the paper aside because you have to do something else we receive phone call how likely that you will come back to that work so the important thing is to kind of sell your stuff in a good way and also convince the reader that what you’re doing is important and this typically happens in the abstract so the abstract is kind of live short which is sometimes called summary in German which I don’t think it’s the best translation for that so I typically stick with the work abstract which typically consists of four to five sentences and most a lot of papers are these good ones follow kind of a certain structure and the structures kind of answer these four sentences sometimes these are five sentences sometimes that says a person I want to put more emphasis on the what or I want to put more emphasis on the why or I may not want to explain the problem because it’s obvious. Get to know how to do clear explanations onĀ Edusson.

I directly start with why are typically what the problem and why is typically done also in one sentence and then I may spend a sentence more on a spec number three but these are four things that your abstract should cover the first thing state the problem so what is the problem that you’re investigating and why is this a problem this can be very simple like mobile robots driving through the environment need to know where obstacles are in order to drive without collisions it’s a pretty clear statement and then you say then you continue with next one why is it’s interesting because collision free navigation is the key technology to build autonomous systems and then you motivate it if you have a paper which addresses the navigation problem that this is something that is worth investigating or if you’re going to present a new sensor you say doing hype high accurate measurements of whatever buildings is important in for several disciplines for construction site for evaluating how far a construction site off for example if you want to address that problem and then you say in this paper we present and you work the general that allows us to develop a more accurate sensor because this allows us to measure whatever as accurate as before but requiring only a tenth of the time to so you need to motivate your work.

So you say say the problem say why this interesting so why should I continue to read that so what is the game that I had the reader will get and then you say what you’re doing so you say what is my solution to that this paper proposes a menial algorithm to solve this in that problem or this paper presents a new sensor design which just cost a tenth of the price that a previous sensor system for example would cost and then finally say what follows from that this technology enables us to whatever build more accurate Maps that we could do that in the past or get more accurate reconstructions of buildings then it was possible before you may say this allows whatever new building technology to exploit this technique and to whatever this technology is useful for suite the important thing is does your abstract and from these four questions and you typically should do that in that order as I said you may combine 1 and 2 into one sentence and then spend two sentences on a spec number three or number four that’s all fine but these four key things should actually be covered so it’s kind of the key element having a good starting well into your paper in how to write a paper.
