Write 1 GY 402 Sedimentary Petrology (W) GSSA Writing Assignment One Dissecting Components of a Scientific Paper Your Task : This first writing assignment will be very simple, if you have every had any scientific writing experience in the past. Most of you should have already taken GY 304-Stratigraphy (which is now a prerequisite for GY 402), so you should be familiar with the make up of a scientific paper (AKA term paper). So what exactly is your task today? I would like you to compare and contrast the abstract, introduction and conclusions sections of a typical scientific paper. This does not mean that you actually give me examples of these components. That will come soon enough. In this assignment, I want you to tell me what the structure, purpose and format is (or should be) for an abstract, an introduction and the conclusions of a paper. All three are somewhat similar, but they are more different than they are alike, hence the question.
