The Innovation journal includes two types of full-length articles: research papers and feature articles (commentary and broad analysis of scientific trends, editorials, etc.).
Research articles are the core scientific publications submitted by student researchers. These papers should be as concise as possible and written in an accessible manner.
Feature articles will provide broad commentary, an analysis of scientific trends and recent innovations or editorial pieces about personal experience with scientific research.
Students will submit their research papers in the form of manuscripts (similar in format to a research paper for school). This manuscript will then be reviewed and edited by a group of expert reviewers, the editing team, and the author(s). The final manuscript will then be formatted for publication. Research article manuscripts should follow the following, basic four-component structure.
The introduction should consist of a clear description of current research and background context for the field of interest. Afterward, the research problem and novelty of the research should be discussed.
The methodology should provide a clear and brief overview of the experimental procedures used in the process. Special materials and fabrication processes for the research should be described. In addition, statistical techniques applied to results should be briefly explained, including the name of the statistical technique, data to which it was applied, and significance level.
This section should be divided into sub-headings that explicitly state the results. Figures and graphs should be clearly labeled and have succinct, descriptive captions.
This section should illustrate the results and provide context for the significance of the research in current literature. It should NOT be a restatement of the results section.
