Description

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 With easy-to-follow rules and tips, and with examples taken from published and unpublished papers, you will learn how to: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.
