Why write an article?

Dissemination of original research results in sciences and engineering very often involves writing scientific articles.

Scientific articles...
1) Disseminate knowledge (to other researchers and the public);
2) Advance science;
3) Promote researchers' works;
4) Establish the priority of a discovery;
5) Assess the productivity, credibility, and impact of a researcher or institution;
6) Archive knowledge.

In this guide created for the Polytechnique Montréal community, researchers will find useful information about scientific articles, an important vehicle for transmitting knowledge.
