CATEGORIZATION OF ARTICLES

 

Distinguishing scientific from professional articles

 

The importance of usefulness of an article is not determined by whether it is scientific or professional.

The difference between a scientific and a professional work is the originality of the results of research, debate and conclusions obtained by verified scientific methods.

A professional paper can be more important for spreading knowledge and profession and economically more useful in application, but this does not mean it is a new contribution to the increase of scientific knowledge.

 
 

The received full papers are categorized into:

 

  • Original scientific paper is the first publication of original research. It must be presented so that the research can be repeated giving results with equal precision within the limits of the trial error, which means that the correctness of analyses and conclusions can be checked.
  • Scientific review is a complete review of a issue or a field of research based on already published work but contains original analyses synthesis or suggestions for further research. It has a more comprehensive introduction than the original scientific paper.
  • Preliminary communication includes new scientific results demanding urgent publication while the research is underway. This kind of article does not have to ensure the repetition and checking the presented results. It is published only with the author’s obligation to publish the original scientific paper when the research is completed.
  • Professional paper deals with the issues in the profession. It gives professional instructions and suggestions for how to solve the issue (technique, technology, methodology).
  • Professional review is a complete review of a professional issue (technique, technology, methodology) based on already published work indicating the best ways for solving the issue.
