Writing for academic journals: A general approach

Writing for academic journals: A general approach


It is an important and difficult job to write and publish an academic paper. A large percentage of the manuscripts that are submitted to academic journals for publication are rejected because the author’s research is not credible or the manuscripts are poorly written. This paper provides a general approach and some key points for writing and successfully publishing journal papers.

An essential approach in preparing a journal paper is to follow the instructions provided by the target journal. Authors must follow the format and the template of the target journal when preparing their papers for submission. In this paper, we focus on some standard procedures for writing the three most common types of academic papers, i.e., review articles, original articles, and case reports.

I recommend this article to all of young researchers and postgraduate students who are going to have some ideas on writing their first journal papers.
