Firstly, you should be well aware of the journal you will be submitting your paper to. You should write to the editor/s and also visit their website for details to make sure your research paper will fit in with the style of the journal. After you have found a matching journal and are comfortable with their review system, which may be single blind or double blind or peer reviewed, submit your article or paper to the journal. Make sure your article fits their guidelines otherwise it may get rejected.
A good paper is one which follows guidelines has a Table of Contents, good descriptive images graphs or tables that are easy to understand; new data from research and not from a thesis, old conferences and previously published works or rehash of old works. The paper should have a logical introduction, descriptive short abstract, good methods, analysis and discussion sections, up to date references, good research and quality written English (or language submitted in) and syntax just like the guidelines prescribed by the journal.
When referencing, the resources in the paper should be relevant, new and from a wide source. The style chosen to report the references and making the bibliography should be that required by the journal (Turabian, Harvard, Vancouver or APA, MLA). If you follow these tips your paper has a high possibility of being published. Best of luck!Help us resolve your doubts.
