While helping a friend with a research assignment (basically find some studies on a topic, compare them, and then evaluate the work as a whole), I noticed that the professor had provided a sample paper.
They had one paragraph for every study, and they were all in the same exact format. For example:
[Authors] conducted a [type of study] to investigate [phenomena]. The study was conducted at [institution] and involved [N] [types of people]. The strengths of this study were [...] etc.
Is it plagiarism to copy this exact format? Or is the structure of paragraphs not something to worry about?
