Academic Articles

Today I wanted to talk academic paper order, because the order is specific and may be different from what you've written before. Though structure might vary slightly among publishers, the content remains the same. Many publishers require the following: title, author byline, abstract, introduction (background), methods, results (sometimes combined with discussion), discussion, conclusions, references, acknowledgements, and figures/tables. Wow, that's a long list! What section is the easiest for you to write? Which is the most difficult?
