One needs to include all the prime information regarding the research paper because sometimes people only reads the summary of research paper and give their complete view about it.


This should be the very first page of the research paper. It contains explanation about the research paper that why this is being made. Few students start introduction and write everything to make it more large. Students should keep it informative by telling the main concern and the theme of the research paper.
