Writing a research article

When writing a research article, several steps can be followed. But when I’m writing for a journal, and is it any different than writing for a university course?

For ecample, and take the following guide.

He suggests that we do a literature review first, and write up the introduction. Then we design and conduct the experiment.

This guide is for biology, not computer science, and it is for university classes, not academic publication. Nonetheless, couldn’t there be such a streamlined procedure for doing academic research?

For example, after amassing 10 articles and one to two books, I’d write a literature review and then an introduction. Then I would design and conduct an experiment, write it up, and then write a conclusion. That would be that. I think we need to try it and see how it goes. Onwards and upwards, ignore the furnaces of the paper factory.
