A scientific paper is a formal publication of the results of research. It's the equivalent of a professional statement, in some cases relating to research which may have taken years or decades. Scientific papers represent important professional commitments by the scientists involved. They form an important part of the scientific method, allowing peer evaluation to examine the findings, and make criticisms. These papers are also the basis of 'big science', important intellectual properties, often representing huge commitments to research.
Examples of Scientific Papers:
|The human genome project was perhaps the most dramatic, certainly the most world-changing, of the recent big scientific paper publications.|
