Manuscript Structure

A well-structured scientific research manuscript has maximum impact. Manuscript structure not only includes the IMRAD (Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion) but also other parts of a research paper, such as the conclusion, title, abstract, keywords, figures, tables, graphs, and references. This section includes posts on how you can prepare a perfect IMRAD paper as well as work on other important aspects to prepare a well-structured research paper.
How can a proper research question be framed, so that the question can be answered later in the analysis of the research?
In writing the title, can we use literary expressions to make the title more beautiful? CD133 as the Achilles heel of cancer stem cells? ( I intend to find a suitable title for my review article.)
My research topic is "The use of information technology in education."
My research topic is: "How to improve the quality of customer service in Continental Hotel?" 1. Is the phrase "how to" to vague? 2. Should we limit the time from 2017-2020? 3. Should we change the title? Thank you very much for your time.

In a Masters thesis, is “Introduction” the name of Chapter 1? Does it refer to the entire Chapter 1 or is it a subheading inside Chapter 1 which has its own body like the Rationale and Statement of the Problem? What exactly does the Introduction and Background of the Study include? How do we write the Introduction and Background of the study? Is there a format (sequential arrangement of the contents) for writing the Introduction and Background of the Study?
Should the keywords of the manuscript not overlap with the words used in the title? I have ever heard so, while I also heard that the important words should not be avoided even if they are used in the title. What is the general manner?

The question has been asked in view of PhD thesis writing.
I submitted a paper for publication in a journal some years ago. The reviewer report suggested I should not end the article with a recommendation, but instead it is better to write the implication of the paper. I disagreed with the statement. After this my paper was rejected.
