Writing Good Research Papers

Dari minitutorial yang ditulis Mary Shaw dari Carnegie Mellon University:

Sebuah research paper yang baik harus menjawab beberapa pertanyaan berikut:

What, precisely, was your contribution?

  • What question did you answer?
  • Why should the reader care?
  • What larger question does this address?

What is your new result?

  • What new knowledge have you contributed that the reader can use elsewhere?
  • What previous work (yours or someone else’s) do you build on? What do you provide a superior alternative to?
  • How is your result different from and better than this prior work?
  • What, precisely and in detail, is your new result?

Why should the reader believe your result?

  • What standard should be used to evaluate your claim?
  • What concrete evidence shows that your result satisfies your claim?

Kalau jawaban untuk tiap pertanyaan di atas sudah bisa dijawab, maka kita sudah berhasil mengkomunikasikan hasil riset kita dengan baik. Selanjutnya, jika hasil riset kita merepresentasikan kontribusi yang menarik dan cukup penting terhadap pengetahuan kita, maka research paper kita punya peluang untuk dipublikasikan pada suatu jurnal atau konferensi…

Minitutorial ini sebenarnya membahas secara khusus S/W Engineering research papers. Kalau tertarik, bisa download disini
