Transcript of A Comparison of Two Papers

One paper was published in 2006; the second in 2009.
This immediately gives the second paper more credibility than the first. It contains more up-to-date information and uses more modern techniques and scientific research.

This is also evident from some of the sources in the second paper coming from 2007, whereas the first paper cited sources from earlier dates which may now be less reliable.
However, the second paper may not be fully reliable.
The second paper contains a lot of information from the first; this means that if any mistakes were present in the first paper, they may have carried across to the second one.
The second paper's tables provide more information.
Tables in the second paper provide concise information about the accuracy of various tomography techniques, for example in Table 3 with reference to predictions of the Young's Modulus of composites.
The second paper is also more professional.
When writing the first paper, Josh was still a student at Manchester. In 2009, however, he was working as a professional engineer and therefore had more experience both within the field, and with academic research.

The second paper was also worked on by more co-authors, and therefore may have combined more experience and knowledge. In addition to this, it is also in colour with more in-depth and up-to-date diagrams, which can provide the reader with more reliable information.
The second paper includes more experimental data.
Whereas the majority of the first paper is focused on theoretical content, the second paper appears to explore more practical applications of the axial tomography technique.

The first paper only compares one technique, whereas the second also compares the unit cell approach.
A Comparison of the Reliability of Two Papers
The first paper also only explores two variables.
The first paper only explores stress and strain, whereas the second paper also discusses thermal effects on the composite. By introducing this third variable, the second paper is providing a more accurate representation of the behavior of the composite.
