Parts of a Scholarly Research Article

A scholarly research article usually has several sections, including:

  • Abstract (summary)
  • Introduction
  • Literature Review
  • Methodology
  • Results
  • Discussion
  • Conclusion
  • References (works cited)

Learn more about some of these sections from the brief, interactive "Anatomy of a Scholarly Article" tutorial or from the longer "Elements of a Research Article" tutorial.
