Research Paper

I like Simon Peyton Jones’ seven simple suggestions for writing a research paper.

This gem, in particular, associated with suggestion #1: Writing papers is a primary mechanism for doing research (not just for reporting it).

  1. Don’t wait: write
  2. Identify your key idea
  3. Tell a story
  4. Nail your contributions
  5. Related work: later
  6. Put your readers first (examples)
  7. Listen to your readers
