At the beginning of the lecture, Prof. Li introduced Ohio State UniversityHe, then gave his suggestions about paper writing and submission skills. In the preface of the article students can put forward research hypotheses based on the literature, emphasizing the great contribution that their research can make to the existing literature. It’s a must to convince the reviewer of the importance of your research. For the use of research methods, the correct use of the literature method should demonstrate examples and  ensure the research methods to be rigor and science.In the choice of research methods, he suggested that when students choose the experimental intervention research methods, we must ensure the credibility of the experiment, reducing the intervention factors. He also points out the quicker and more convenient way of sending out the questionnaire to do the research. In the part of the result section of the article, Professor Li Weidong proposes that students should not discuss, summarize our research results and provide data when writing. Students should prompt the reader to their own research question and the hypothesis, pointing out the research flaw, and once again emphasizing their own research the importance.
