Synthetic-type research is conducted by private companies, public institutes, and universities to realize societal value by scientific and technological methods. Synthesiology is a scientific journal that enables authors to describe the processes and results of this kind of research. Editors specifically request authors to describe their scenario for synthetic-type research. In this paper, the characteristics of synthetic-type research are compared with those of analytic-type research, and the structures and properties of synthetic-type research scenarios are clarified. From the investigation of papers published in Synthesiology, we show that the scenario plays a central role in synthetic-type research and can be expressed using scientific languages.
