Writing Tips #21



Make your title specific enough to describe the contents of the paper, but not so technical that only specialists will understand. The title should be appropriate for the intended audience.
—  The title usually describes the subject matter of the article: Effect of Group Studying on Academic Performance
—  Sometimes a title that summarizes the results is more effective: Students Who Study Alone Get Lower Grades
Poor titles :
  • —  Cloud Computing
  • —  Knowledge Management
—  Why? Because they are too general
—  Better titles would be :
  • —  Resolving Security Issues in Cloud Computing
  • —  The Effects of Efficient Knowledge Management In an Organization
—  Why? Because the keywords identify a specific action (resolving, finding the effects),area of study ( security, knowledge management) and the platform of the study (cloud computing, organization)
