I have been trying to write a paper. Reading the introduction part I am getting different behaviours from different papers.
Some papers cover themselves more than 50% with introduction content as if they are the only source of information present anywhere while some give it very briefly expecting user to be well aware.
As a reader I never expected to learn the concept from paper intro part itself but from books and then read papers. I rather think that introduction section shall be used to provide very brief intro and references for further understanding. Repeating an algorithm that's present in 500 books makes no sense.
I need some tips on writing introduction part that its just about enough or is it mandatory to repeat info to make it somewhat complete in itself ?
