Manuscript Structure

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.

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?

I just watched the Webinar on Structuring a Scientific Manuscript: Perspective of a Managing Editor, it was very enlightening and helpful, tho I am a little confused with the Discussion and Conclusion.
