Problem:

Assume that I have a reason and I would like to express it in my sentence using the word as. What is the correct way to construct my sentence?

Example:

As the main idea of this section is in introducing a new estimation method, then, the work is limited to a simulation study.

Is this a good way to use As? Is my sentence correct?

Any help, please?

    Okay, so to tidy this up: "As the main idea of this section is to introduce a new estimation method, the work is limited to a simulation study." – ralph.m Dec 7 '18 at 5:05

    Any reason not to use "since" in place of "as"? Flows better in my opinion. – user3169 Dec 7 '18 at 5:14

The way you've used "as" here is correct, and a common phrasing used in academic writing and similar documents. However, the "then" in the middle of the sentence sounds awkward to me. As ralph.m notes in the comments, a cleaner way to phrase it would be

As the main idea of this section is to introduce a new estimation method, the work is limited to a simulation study.
