Writing Introduction

How to write the introduction part in scientific publication?

The "Introduction" section should show that there is a literature gap on the topic you are investigating, and that your article is a writing that attempts to break this information gap. No one will be interested in an article written on certain topics that everyone is working on. For this reason, you must state in the "Introduction" section that the information you have chosen has not been studied yet, so you have decided to write the relevant article. So briefly, you should identify in the "Introduction" section that there is an information gap in the topic you have chosen, and then you need to explain why you intend to fill that gap and why.

Things to note in the introduction section are as follows:

1. Make sure that the "Introduction" should consist of a maximum of 1 (one) page. The main purpose of the "Introduction" section is to provide preliminary information about the publication regarding to the research subject or the problem. When presenting this preliminary information, avoid unnecessarily detailed and unnecessary clauses.

2. In the "Introduction" section, you can start by writing down your hypothesis and your idea. Then specify why you choose this topic. By presenting information from the literature which the work is based on, you need to present the reasoning and rationale for the preparation of the work (you should extensively study the literature in a separate chapter after Introduction).

3. Another important point to note when writing "Introduction" part is to reference which the subject or problem is based on and giving details about the references. Again, in this section, you can also specify the names of the publications that advocate the opposite of the topic you have chosen. This will add depth, objectivity, and scientificness to the work. However, please be careful not to make more than two references to the same person in this section.

4. No expressions such as "I" or "our country" should be used in the "Introduction" section. Likewise, a structure of have been used "should be preferred instead of verbs "was used", "will be used", " being used" and " at the end of the sentence.

5. In the "Introduction" section, avoid using fanciful sentences as much as you can and avoid using definite and assertive expressions.

6. If the article is thought to have global reach, the "Introduction" section is the best place to describe all kinds of specific terms and abbreviations. For this reason, if you want to use an abbreviation for a term in the "Introduction" section, the term is first written in the introduction section, followed by an abbreviation in parentheses. Later on, only the abbreviation is used.
