There are four types of technical results:-
A system construct: such as hardware design, software system, protocol, etc.One goal of the paper is to ensure that the next person who designs a system like yours doesn't make the same mistakes and takes advantage of some of your best solutions. So make sure that the hard problems (and their solutions) are discussed and the non-obvious mistakes (and how to avoid them) are discussed. (Craig Partridge)
A performance evaluation: obtained through analyses, simulation or measurements;
A theory: consisting of a collection of theorems.
- describing the results in sufficient details to establish their validity;
- identifying the novel aspects of the results, i.e., what new knowledge is reported and what makes it non-obvious;
- identifying the significance of the results: what improvements and impact do they suggest.
Give the articles to somebody else to read. If you can, find two people: one person familiar with the technical matter, another only generally familiar with the area.articles can be divided roughly into two categories, namely original research articles and survey papers. There are articles that combine the two elements, but most publication venues either only accept one or the other type or require the author to identify whether the should be evaluated as a research contribution or a survey paper. Most research papers contain a "related work" section that can be considered a survey, but it is usually brief compared to the rest of the paper and only addresses a much narrower slice of the field.
