【How to Write】Cite the previous studies

As a researcher, one of your main tasks is to sell your research ideas if you want your paper to get accepted and published by a journal.

As a researcher, one of your main tasks is to sell your research ideas if you want your paper to get accepted and published by a journal. For this purpose, it's necessary to convince the reviewers and editors that your research is important. But how? Let me ask you this: What is your research for? What problem your research (or solution) can solve?

What you need is to review and cite previous studies to provide the reasons why your research is important. You can make them your supporters and lobbyists. Here are three sentence patterns for citation.
