[Background] The initial segment of the introduction needs to present a clear and logical argument supporting the significance or relevance of the study. Evidence from literature must support the idea.

[Literature review] The second segment of the introduction must establish a clear and logical argument demonstrating the originality of the study. The literature review must summarize what is already known about the research query or specific topic and clarify the knowledge gap that the study intends to address. Evidence from literature should back up the argument.

[Conceptual framework] For some research papers, it is essential to describe the underlying theoretical basis for the research and how these theories are interconnected in a conceptual framework. The theory used to construct the conceptual framework should be referenced from the literature.

[Aim and objectives] The introduction should conclude with a clear and concise summary of the study's aim and objectives.

[Research method] Finally, the introduction should contain the methods used to address the research question. The methodology section must explain the steps taken in executing the study. It should provide sufficient detail to convince the reader that the method used is reliable and valid in presenting the findings. This section should include information about the sampling technique, data collection, and sample size.

Body of Article

(2) Verify if the author offers a scientific explanation for every result or finding that is presented (the reason behind it).
(3) Assess if the study results are comparable to what other researchers have published, or if there are any discrepancies.
