So far, I puplished a paper (literature review) using the "classical" structure: Introduction-Method-Results-Discussion-Conclusion.
At the moment I am writing another paper which presents the result of our developments of a simulation approach. The paper should contain the following parts:
- Literature study
- Description of the mathematical theory behind some methods
- How we implemented (2) into the actual modeling language
- Use cases
My question: How would you structure (+ name) the sections? My first idea was:
- Introduction (including lit-review)?
- Method (does the description of the mathematical theory belong to that section?)?
Two more specific questions:
- In which section would you place the description of the tool (f.i. a certain Matlab package)? In the "Introduction/lit-rev" section? Or in the "Implementation" section?
- It is necessary to compare two fundamental modelling approaches (in order to motivate why we use one of them): Where would you place this section? In the section method, or lit-rev?
Thank you very much for your help!
