Description:

The paper examines the article, "Effects of Resistance Exercise and Fortified Milk on Skeletal Muscle Mass, Muscle Size, and Functional Performance in Middle-Aged and Older Men: An 18-mo Randomized Controlled Trial" and highlights the many superfluous words and descriptions in its title and introduction. The paper finds that the methodology was clearer although the authors inserted an exaggerated abundance of data, and the results and discussion were elaborately dwelt on with a superfluous convolution of knowledge. Notwithstanding the general tediousness of the article's style, the paper notes that the authors seem to have been conscientious in their research and knowledgeable in their subject and it would be easy for any researcher to replicate this study.

Analysis of the Introduction

From the Paper:

"The title should succinctly and clearly summarize the main idea of the paper, identifying variables or issues and the relationship between them. It should be fully explanatory when standing alone and is easily compressed to a short title if necessary. Its recommended length is 10-12 words (APA, 206). The title in this case runs to 26 words. It uses superfluous words such as 'resistance' and 'fortified' and abbreviates month for mo in a manner that would have been incomprehensible for many readers. The journal -The Journal of Applied Science published by the American Physiological Society - seems a respectable, authoritative source.
"The paper, in short, argues that fortified milk showed no effect on muscle size, strength, or function in healthy middle aged and older men possessing adequate energy and nutrient intakes, whereas exercise had the opposite effect.
"The acronym IMRAD stands for Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion, which are the main formats of a scientific paper. The paper includes these, although the Introduction section is somewhat unclear. In that manner, this paper somewhat differs from the IMRAD structure in that the preview is not clearly labeled or denoted as Introduction per se."
