Research Report for INTEL

Postby Minuoja » Sat Feb 02, 2013 10:14 pm


I am currently writing down my report for INTEL. My report is currently 11 pages long (without the title page, the table of contents, the references) and I am trying to shorten it. I have a lot of difficulties since I am feeling that all what I have now as information is important and relevant. I would like to know if the ''reagents'' need to be listed as in a scientifc article in the report? If not, it could shorten my report a little more. Also, I have summarized my conclusion in my discussion as in a scientific article. Is it acceptable, or should I do a separate conclusion?

Thank you for your help,

Are you preparing for Intel ISEF? (There is more than one Intel science competition.) The best approach is to review information on the ISEF site regarding any rules and suggestions for the research paper. A research paper is not "required," though it is recommended. I am not sure if there is a page length limit, but you should research further to determine this. http://www.societyforscience.org/Page.aspx?pid=355

If you are first participating in a local (school, county, state) fair, that fair may have requirements for your paper component.

Good luck!
