uses five common categories for articles.
Long Papers: A long paper should give a substantial description of an original research project. It should include detailed discussions of the methods utilized and the results obtained. The suggested length is 2,500 – 4,000 words.
Short Reports: A short report should give a concise overview of an original research project. Its content is comparable to that of science posters. The suggested length is 1,000 – 2,000 words.
Theses: A thesis is similar to a long paper and should therefore be of similar length and content. The suggested length is 2,500 – 4,000 words. Students participating in undergraduate programs that require a thesis are encouraged to submit their work.
Literature Reviews: A literature review should give detailed information on the methodology of a scientific topic as well as the current scientific findings associated with the topic. Unlike a research paper, a literature review does not report novel information obtained from research performed by the author(s). The suggested length is 2,500 – 4,000 words.
Research Narratives: A research narrative describes an author’s personal experiences in research using an editorial or narrative style. The suggested length is 600 – 800 words.
