Sir,

The most popular format of the original research article is IMRaD which stands for Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, and Discussion.[1] For ease of description, we are using a new acronym – IaMRDC which stands for Introduction with aim, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, and Conclusion. Many a time, journal readers read the aim (what authors wanted to find?) and conclusion (what authors found?) of a paper to get an overall view of the research.[2] Hence, we added “Aim” and “Conclusion” in the newly proposed acronym.

In a previous editorial, the art and craft of writing a scientific paper has been discussed.[3] In this article, we are presenting the basic question which should be answered by each segment of a manuscript in a quickly accessible tabular form [Table 1]. It may help a novice writer before, during, and after preparation of an original research article.
