研究內容 in English

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

 

Is there an English equivalent of the term 研究内容 (used as a heading in a research paper)? Thanks.

Sticking my neck out here but this seems to be a very non-descriptive type of term on its own for a title of a paper in English.

I think it probably is best translated in context of the whole research paper. For instance, is it a review or primary research?

Kenny,

It might depend on whether the section discusses the approach or the results.

For example:

Approach: Research Methodology, or Scope of the Project,

Results: Research results, or Conclusions, something like that.

In other situations, maybe Sources...

Without more background, though, these are just suggestions.

See below for typical section headings for an international scientific journal article:

Please indicate the main sections of your paper with headings followed by a colon: Title:, Authors:, Affiliations:, Abstract:, Main Text:, References:, Acknowledgments:, Figure #:, Table #:, and Supplementary Material.

Thanks for your help, Flickserve, TBZ, and gato.

 

The paper is a master’s thesis on business model innovation. I don't think the relevant section is a typical component of a standard research paper. To make the English sound less awkward, I will translate the term as “Content”.

If "研究内容" is a summary of the paper, you can use the heading "Abstract" or just "Summary".

Thanks gato. Unfortunately, it is neither an abstract nor a summary. : (

And it is not about the scope of the research project?

Thanks Skylee. 'Scope' would be a better option but I had sent the work in...
