Writing Your Article

Writing your Article

IJMETONLINE extends all the assistance to authors to write and publish research article.

Here are some formats that can help you improve your writing skills.

Abstract

Your abstract is what readers will use when they are deciding whether to read your article. For this reason your abstract is very important and you should spend time making sure that it is readable and that it contains a complete description of your research.

In approximately 100-200 words, you will need to summarize your findings and what the implications of those findings are.

  1. The abstract must be accurate as a reflection of what is in your article.

  2. The abstract must be self-contained, without abbreviations, footnotes, or incomplete references. It must make sense on its own.

  3. It is a good idea to include keywords in your abstract, as this will help readers to find it. Key phrases need to make sense within the abstract. Try to keep to a maximum of three or four different keyword phrases, and avoid over-repetition of such phrases as this can look like an attempt to trick a search engine, which may result in a page being rejected.

  4. Check that the abstract reads well.

  5. Check the journal Information for Authors page to see how what length is required. Make sure that you stick to this limit, otherwise it is likely that your abstract will be edited.

For papers reporting original research, state the primary objective and any hypothesis tested; describe the research design and your reasons for adopting that methodology; state the methods and procedures employed, state the main outcomes and results, and state the conclusions that might be drawn from these data and results, including their implications for further research or application/practice.

Article titles

Your article title should be concise, accurate, and informative. Titles are often used by search engines and other information retrieval systems. The title should be specific and it should contain words that readers might be searching for.

This will make it more likely that people will find and read your article. The title must reflect the content of your article; if it does not, readers will be confused or disappointed. The title must also be comprehensible to the general reader outside your field. Where possible avoid abbreviations, formulae, and numbers. The following should also usually be omitted: "Investigation of..."; "Study of..."; More about..."; "...revisited".

Keywords

It is essential that authors, editors, and publishers make every effort to ensure articles are found online, quickly and accurately, ideally within the top three hits. The key to this is the appropriate use of keywords.

Recent evidence suggests that a strong correlation exists between online hits and subsequent citations for journal articles. Search engines rank highly as starting points. Students are increasingly more likely to start their research by using Google ScholarTM, rather than by the traditional starting point of Abstracting and Indexing resources.

We know that the use of keywords helps to increase the chances of the article being located, and therefore cited.

Many search engines have their own algorithms for ranking sites, some by ranking the relevance of content and links to the site from other websites. Some search engines use metadata or "meta-tagging" to assess relevant content. Most search engines, however, scan a page for keyword phrases, which gives emphasis to phrases in headings and/or repeated phrases. The number of other sites that link to a web page also indicates how that page is valued.

Authors should know the key phrases for their subject area. Reference to an established common indexing standard in a particular discipline.

Keyword terms may differ from the actual text used in the title and abstract, but should accurately reflect what the article is about. Why not try searching for the keywords you have chosen, before you submit your article? This will help you see how useful they are.

At IJMETonline, we are continuously working to improve the search engine rankings for our journals.
