WRITING A SCIENTIFIC REPORT

3.1

Structuring a scientific paper

In this article we will give you a short overview about how to set up your final paper according to the guidelines of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the sections of your article.

An APA article has a predefined number of sections and a certain formatting. The structure contains the first-level headings: Abstract, Introduction, Method, Results, Discussion, Implications/Conclusion and References.

We compiled a PDF with a beginner’s guide to APA that you find in the ‘downloads’ section below.
