In my opinion, part of the criteria that builds the quality of good research paper are:
  • be based on some logical rationale and bound by theory;
  • keep the study current, valid and verifiable;
  • the language of the research should be simple and easy to understand.

The data the researcher adds in the research paper should have to be verifiable and provable. The researcher should be able to demonstrate the research paper and there should not be any loopholes in the information.

A research paper should have to be free of ambiguities and it should have great clarity. Clarity is one of the main essences of research and without clarity the research paper is useless.

Concise
As a researcher you do not need to add a lot to the research paper to make it unique or interesting rather you should add only relevant and original content. The readers will be able to understand a concise research more easily, there should not be unnecessary details in the research.

Systematic: It means that research is structured with specified steps to be taken in a specified sequence in accordance with the well defined set of rules. Systematic characteristic of the research does not rule out (discard, prevent) creative thinking but it certainly does reject the use of guessing and intuition arriving at conclusions.

Logical: This implies that research is guided by the rules of logical reasoning and the logical process of induction and deduction are of great value in carrying out research. Induction is the process of reasoning from a part to the whole whereas deduction is the process of reasoning from the premise. In fact, logical reasoning makes research more meaningful in the context of decision making.

Dear Praneeth Silva ideally, a good research paper presents novel findings. It should also have a full story. Thus it is important that the paper does not report only fragmented or incomplete results. It should also be written in good scientific English.

Dear Researcher,
This is a great question that you have raised. It is great because different people will come up with different answers and each answer can have different interpretation.
Now let me tell you my answer.
You know, I have a peculiar habit. I try to judge the importance of anything by the future it aims to bring for us. So when I go through a research article, I think that article should instigate some future scope of research. I try to understand that and I think that is the most important quality of a good research paper.
In my thesis and dissertations, throughout my life, I had always written about the future scope of the research under the heading "Importance of the Current Research". Probably most people will not agree with me. But that is the way I think. You know, why I think this way? I think this way because most us are doing everything not for the current but for the future. It also reminds me of a great saying of Voltaire. He said that none of us are living today, all of us are expecting to live one day.
Thank you.
Best regards,
Anamitra.

A good research should not have most of its references outdated, that is, more than five years old. It should also be replicable, reproducible, and transparent.

Reference:
There was also a nomination link, which I removed from the text above and that I did not try to open, as well as the abstract of a paper that was accepted a few days ago and made available online about 10 hours before that mail was being sent. According to the website (https://sciencefather.com/awards/), one needs to pay a registration fee in order to apply for an award. Is this a new scam? Thanks for your help.
