Scientific publications make new knowledge to be spread, which stimulates innovations and new interventions as well as improves existing technologies and make existing interventions more effective. The societal impact of scientific work is considered to be an important drive for economic development. However, the quality of scientific knowledge has to be guaranteed. Therefore, international procedures and regulations as well as publication policies have been developed to check the quality of scientific manuscripts before publications.

A scientific paper has a fixed structure. Such a paper clarifies what the problem is and why it is a problem.
