Modern scientists distinguish different types of scientific articles - it depends on the topic chosen by the author and the research method.

The publication of scientific works (hereinafter - HP) is one of the necessary conditions for research activities. It is by the presence of published works that the potential of a young scientist is assessed, as well as the weight of the contribution of experienced researchers to science.

What is a scientific article

A scientific article is a logically completed study of problem , carried out through the application of a scientific method. This is the concept of a scientific article in its most simplified form.    

Any publication of this kind describes the relevance of the research, the goals and objectives of the research, as well as the essence of the innovation of the ideas presented. The author, publishing his research, secures the copyright to one or another idea.        

A separate type of publications in the field of science includes the so-called reviews, which are an analysis of the works of scientists on a specific topic. Such a work can be written in the form of a polemic with a reasoned presentation of one's own opinion on the issue under consideration. It is clear that when writing such a work, various questions may arise. Such problems can be dealt with with professionals who can provide essay help . 

The works of scientists are usually set out:

  • in an impersonal form;
  • divided into logical blocks;
  • all blocks are interconnected;
  • there is a clear structure of the text.

An example of the structure of the text of the work:

  1. Heading
  2. annotation 
  3. Keywords
  4. Introductory part
  5. Main part
  6. Final part with conclusions
  7. references or bibliography

Types of scientific articles

        Depending on the subject and method of research, there are several types of published scientific articles. These are theoretical practical and survey works.     

  •          Scientific and theoretical articles are theoretical developments in a specific area set out in an accessible form. The value of such HPs is undeniable - in them the author can analyze the patterns and explain their reasons.   
  •          Scientific and practical articles are publications of experimental research , in such works the results of the obtained experiments are given, their practical significance is revealed.  
  •          Survey studies are, first of all, a review, which provides the opinion of various scientists on the issue under study and, as a rule, expresses the opinion of the author.  

There is also a selection of varieties of publications by genre of presentation: 

  1. analytical;
  2. scientific and journalistic;
  3. research. 

It is these types of HP and their concepts that we will consider.

Analytical article

For many who hear this meaning for the first time, a reasonable question arises: what is and how to write a reflection  An analytical article is a published research work that is an analysis of the factors that make it possible to find a solution to a particular scientific problem.  

In this work, the author provides the initial data, analyzes the interdependence of facts, the interrelation of patterns. A distinctive feature of such a publication is the use of research methods generally accepted in science, a thorough study of the topic.  

In his analytical work, the author provides reasoning according to the scheme:


Types of analytical publications: 

  • installation or software;
  • scientific and survey. 

Analytical publications are presented in a strictly scientific style, which is characterized by the use of specific terms and definitions. In this case, there should be no colloquial vocabulary  

Programmed HP usually contains an analysis of the dynamics of development and the state of the sphere of activity that the journal represents. In them, it is necessary to ensure the validity, validity of the provisions put forward, since publications of this kind contain a vector for further research by scientists.   

Analytical program publications are distinguished by a well- defined focus of the topic, careful study of the material; the presence of theoretical and practical generalization of significant phenomena, events; proof of conclusions and proposals, as well as novelty  

Review publications are a concentrated analysis of literature sources on a specific topic.
