Manuscript Preparation

All academic authors should prioritize familiarizing themselves with the specifics of manuscript formatting because a well-written, well-structured research paper has higher chances of journal acceptance. However, the road leading to manuscript submission is relatively long and could be rather confusing for uninformed authors or those lacking relevant guidance. There are many things you need to focus on when writing a manuscript, e.g., grammar usage, flow of content, proper use of technical terminology, etc., all of which contribute to the how a particular paper and its author are perceived. Here, you will find helpful tips and resources on all aspects of academic manuscript writing--grammar, language, style, format, manuscript structure, and preparing tables and figures. The idea is to help you understand how to write a high-impact research manuscript.

I recently read somewhere that the Results section should report the results for each method that you have used and discussed in the Methods section. But I always thought that the results should be contained within the "analysis of the data", from data reduction, data display and verification. Please advise.

In many cases I have noticed that the reference style actually used by a journal differs from the style given in the reference instructions of that journal. Sometimes the differences are small like that...
