This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
This is valid grammatically, but it's a baroque way of conveying the meaning. Why use a verb that's been turned into a noun (affirm -> affirmation) when you can just use the verb, and make it easier to understand?
... and there are more conventional verbs you could use.
In a scientific paper, you should use the most straightforward language possible.
