Infographic: Top 10 avoidable mistakes as an author

Top 10 avoidable mistakes as an author

Publishing a research paper can be a rather time consuming process, right from submission until the journal's final decision. As an author, you can help to speed up this process by ensuring that you avoid certain simple mistakes in your paper. But do you know what these mistakes are?

The committee of journal editors, who compiled the AMA (American Medical Association) Manual of Style, came up with a list of the 10 most common errors that they encounter in submitted manuscripts. This infographic lists these top 10 avoidable mistakes made by authors. Although some of these mistakes may not be the sole reason for rejection, if left unresolved they could definitely create unnecessary delays in the publication process.

Feel free to download a PDF version of this infographic and print it out as handy reference.
