English: This article proposes a framework for the writing of an academic article based on a
research project. References are made to theological-ethical examples. The framework
outlines 12 steps for article writing. These steps are the formulation of a problem,
conceptualisation, hypothesis formulation, ethical approval, methodology, philosophical
framework, literature review, data capturing, analysis, validation of the hypothesis,
summary and literature list. A hypothical example on abortion is used to illustrate
how these steps can be employed in writing an article.
