A good paper is one that is easy for members of the intended audience to read and understand. It must contain an informative abstract. The introduction should include information on why the subject is important and reference the most important prior work. The paper must form a balance between brevity and obscurity while covering the subject matter thoroughly. It must avoid snobbery and jargon.
