Wordvice Academic Webinar: Writing a Strong Research Paper Introduction


Topic: How to Write a Strong Paper Introduction

Instructor: Kevin J. Heintz (MA English), Wordvice Senior Editor

Wordvice Senior Editor Kevin J. Heintz takes you on a guided lesson about writing the Introduction section of a scientific research paper.

The Introduction section of a scientific research paper is the first information researchers and journal editors will see when they open your manuscript. Therefore, it should contain all of the relevant background information, the purpose of the study, and the problem statement or “hypothesis” of your study.

This webinar will take you from the opening lines of your paper all the way to the problem statement, showing you how to construct an Introduction section that will clarify your paper’s objectives and set the foundation for the sections that follow. This online lecture includes:

  • Explanation of the general structure of the Introduction
  • How to create an outline for this section
  • Tips on choosing relevant background information, purpose, and problem statement
  • Introduction section Dos and Don’ts
  • Samples of actual Introduction sections
