Most authors avoid mentioning experiments with negative results. Meanwhile, such experiments, especially in the field of technology, are sometimes more instructive than experiments with a positive outcome. Technology is a science in which, unlike mathematics, it happens that a minus plus or minus gives plus. For example, the technological process has two significant drawbacks, but, nevertheless, provides the necessary product quality. If only one drawback is eliminated, then, as a rule, the process will fail and a defect in production will arise. In the article on any technological process, the author should consider the types of defects and methods for its elimination. The technologist grows into a highly qualified specialist if he investigates the causes of marriage in production and develops methods for its elimination. They cannot be identified with annotation, they have different functions. Conclusions should show what is received, and the summary what has been done. Conclusions can not be too numerous.
Three to five valuable for science and production conclusions, obtained as a result of several years of work on the topic, are enough. Conclusions must have the nature of theses. To each of them, the author could add the words “I affirm that It is important to correctly link to the source in the list of references. Different publishers have different requirements for its design. But in any case, you should specify the names of the authors, journal, year of publication, volume (issue), number, page. An interested reader should be able to find the specified literary source. There are cases when the source can not be found at the specified address. Faced with this, you lose confidence in both the author and his work. You must submit your reader and know in advance who the article is addressed to. The author should write about what is unknown to others so that this unknown becomes clear to the reader to the same extent as he himself.
The author of the original work should explain to the reader its most difficult places. If it is a development of already well-known works (and not only the author himself), then there is no point in obstructing the reader with their retelling, but it is better to address him to primary sources. It is important to show the author’s attitude to the published material, especially now, in connection with the wide use of the Internet. Some authors remind “young naturalists”: they caught butterflies with a net, stuck them on a piece of cardboard, but they don’t know what to do with them further. Therefore, analysis and synthesis are necessary, as well as the critical attitude of the author to the materials at his disposal. The main thing in presenting, as A. Pushkin noted, is accuracy and brevity. “The words should be cramped and the thoughts spacious” (N. A. Nekrasov). The order of presentation and the absence of logical discontinuities are important. The red line of the article should be the general train of thought of the author.
