As an academic, you are under increasing pressure to publish earlier in your career, with greater frequency and in higher-ranked journals.
But how do you decide which journals to approach with your research, and what’s the best way to do that?Use this as a checklist while you draft and revise your manuscript.Ask yourself whether your paper contains any of these deficiencies.Use the following suggestions as a checklist when outlining, drafting, and editing your abstract: By “writing and composition” we mean the effectiveness with which a paper employs grammar and writing effectively and according to academic standards.Style affects readability, comprehension, and engagement with journal readers.This (considered tedious and trivial by so many scientists) is of paramount importance to journal editors, who understand that readers judge competency and professionalism in part based on the accuracy and fluency of the articles in their publication.In 2016, Wordvice analyzed several million words in the papers we received in the previous year in order to find out exactly where the most errors occurred and to help our clients understand these errors.In this presentation we have looked at a few simple ways for authors to improve their manuscripts through self-editing and consulting with peers.Apply these suggestions to your manuscript—from content and organization down to the detailed sentence-level issues of grammar, word choice, and style—and watch your manuscript improve and your chances of being published increase.Some editors may not even bother to open the manuscript if the title is too long or awkward, or (god forbid) if it has grammar errors.On the other hand, an excellent title can impress peers, increase the chances of peer review, and subsequently increase the number of readers your manuscript will have.
