    I'm doing a writing project that involves using a Professional Journal, for my project i used the Journal of Environmental Engineering. Their table of contents is seperated between technical papers and technical notes, what is the difference between the two?

    Hello Ainslie,

    A technical paper is summary of observations leading to specific point. Similar, to a thesis.

    A thesis is has notes which usually reference other papers or books. With a technical paper, it is similar, except you reference other paper's experiment observations which you may agree in part or all if it's summary.

    Hope you are clear now..!!
