"Writing the introduction to a journal article"
JANUARY 30, 2016
The introduction is the hardest part to write. Pat Thomson: The introduction can actually be thought of as a kind of mini-thesis statement, with the what, why and how of the argument spelled out in advance of the extended version. The introduction generally lays out a kind of road-map for the paper to come. It also lets the reader know broadly about the kinds of information and evidence that you will use to make your case in the paper. Writing an introduction is difficult.
