-| Pointed paragraphs  | Make sure that each paragraph has a point. The last sentence should give the reason why the paragraph is there by tying into the work that the paper describes. \\ Example: "This work [reviewed in this paragraph] therefore shows that no solution has been found to the problem of X." -- where the paper is about finding a solution to X, or where X is related to the topic of the paper and is addressed as part of the paper.  |+ Pointed paragraphs  | Make sure that each paragraph has a point.

 |  Structure: Prior work achievements and shortcomings  | The main purpose of this section is to tie your work firmly to what has been done before.

 |  Support your main argument  | Remember: A scientific paper is an argument. The section on related work needs to support the main arguments made in the paper: \\ — Be selective on what papers you present in the section.  \\ — Construct a narrative (tell a story), to keep the reader interested. Nobody likes to read a long, dry recount of what has been done. Use your motivation(s) (what questions are you trying to answer?) to keep the story interesting.  | |  Support your main argument  | Remember: A scientific paper is an argument.
