A major problem that young researchers face is their inability to write good research papers. This document serves as a guideline on how to write a good technical paper. It contains ideas that have been gained through experience; skilled authors will find themselves familiar with these ideas. The document is formated and structured like a typical journal publication. Each section describes what you should discuss in it.

The abstract is what a person always reads first in a technical paper. Based on the content of the abstract, the reader will decide whether the paper is worthy enough to merit further study. The abstract should classify your research and contribution in the research areas. It should contain the following four parts: a brief introduction describing the discipline that the paper belongs to; a clear and concise statement of your problem; a brief explanation of your solution and its key ideas; a brief description of the results obtained and their impacts. Lastly, provide a short list of index keyword terms.
