As such, scientists strive to report their results clearly, concisely and broadly to other scientists. To assist in broad distribution of these results, a large number of scientific journals are published every year. Some journals are published monthly or quarterly, while others are published weekly. Some journals have very narrow target audiences, while others target entire disciplines or even cross-disciplinary audiences. While individual journals may have specific formatting requirements, most scientific articles are written in the same general format. The purpose of this assignment is to introduce you to the way that scientific articles are written.
