The Anatomy of a Science Journal Article

A scholarly journal article has an abstract, introduction, method, results, conclusion and a list of references (bibliography).  The journal article's topic should be easy to understand as you read its abstract and introduction.  The method, results and conclusion sections discuss and compare the conducted research.  Authors have to include their cited references about research by other scientists. The use of references distinguish scholarly journal articles from non scholarly journals.
