A novel, substantial, and time-sensitive article are designed to be published in short papers as a method of allowing writers to publish their articles in a relatively short period of time. Short papers are limited to a maximum of four published pages and must be submitted in the two-column style, with a minimum of three and a maximum of four published pages.

Objective Of A Short Article

Short research papers make more concentrated and concise contributions to the research program than full research papers. They are more likely to have a limited scope of assistance than Full Research Papers. The topics covered in short research articles may include but are not limited to critical literature evaluations of developing issues, theory development that is still in the early phases of development, and novel analysis/methods applied to existing data.

Writeup Process

It's easy to believe that producing a short research papertakes less time than writing a long report. Shorter articles, on the other hand, need the same thorough study and meticulous attention to detail as lengthier assignments. Shorter research papers, in certain situations, might be more difficult to write since they must be narrowly focused.
Before you begin writing, begin the process of structuring your presentation. Please don't skimp on the organising stage; it's vital to the success of your paper. In the absence of it, your work will lack focus, and you will spend significantly more time throughout the revision process attempting to make sense of your chaotic thoughts.
  • Choose your topic with caution. The key is to choose a topic that isn't so wide that a brief research report can scrape the surface.
  • Make a list of all related research. An excellent place to start is with an academic publication because the writers of academic journals frequently mention multiple additional sources that you may utilise to supplement their work.
  • Formulate your thesis statement. It's a phrase that highlights your essay's primary topic and gives a sneak peek at your supporting ideas. The thesis statement is crucial since it directs your readers from the start of your article by stating the key concept and supporting points.
  • Create a rough outline. Before beginning the writing process, it will be beneficial to you to arrange your thoughts. Think about the major arguments you'll need to give to support your thesis statement after you've finished developing your thesis statement. Your sub-headings are based on the key points you've made. Now, under each sub-heading, logically arrange your thoughts and material.
  • Format your manuscript by the guidelines provided by the journal you chose.
  • After you've finished your first draft, make sure you leave time to rewrite and edit. This step entails considerably more than simply correcting mistakes and adding or removing commas. Check that your paper is clear and well-organized before submitting it. If necessary, tighten up sloppy phrasing.

How Long Is A Short Research Paper?

Short research papers might be between 1-3 pages in length, whereas lengthier research papers can be between 5-10 pages in length. It is crucial to double-check the journal's author criteria for the precise word count and length of your work, as it has been stated previously.


The short research article is intended to provide the readers with a sense of completion. Follow the progression of the paper, paying particular attention to how it all fits together to support your thesis statement. Make certain that the reader knows how you've resolved the concerns highlighted throughout the article to give the paper a feeling of completion. It may also be necessary to explore the more general implications of the argument, outline what the article provides to future scholars, and propose any problems that the paper's argument asks but does not attempt to address or that the work cannot or does not attempt to answer.
