Publishing your research in an international journal is key to your success in academia. This guide is based on a study of referees' reports and letters from journal editors on reasons why papers written by non-native researchers are rejected due to problems with English usage. It draws on English-related errors from around 5000 papers written by non-native authors, 500 abstracts by PhD students, and over 1000 hours of teaching researchers how to write and present research papers.
With easy-to-follow rules and tips, and with examples taken from published and unpublished papers, you will learn how to:
prepare and structure a manuscript
increase readability and reduce the number of mistakes you make in English by writing concisely, with no redundancy and no ambiguity
plan and organize your paper, and structure each paragraph and each sentence so that the reader can easily follow the logical build-up towards various conclusions
write a title and an abstract that will attract attention and be read
decide what to include in the various parts of the paper (Introduction, Methodology, Discussion etc)
select from over 700 useful phrases
highlight your claims and contribution
avoid plagiarism and make it 100% clear whether you are referring to your own work or someone else's
choose the correct tenses and style (active or passive)
The book also includes around 700 useful phrases for use in any kind for research paper.
