One of our main goals is for the articles published in the JSR Journal to reach the highest standards and bring novelty elements in their fields of study. For this purpose, we bring you a few tips meant to improve manuscript structure and visibility.
How to write an academic article
- Choose a title that best describes your theme. It is best for the title not to be longer than 2 lines. It is absolutely necessary for the title to accurately sum up the purpose of your paper.
- Pay special attention to the Abstract. Summarize the subject, methods and main results of your research. Keep in mind that your article’s visibility and a large rate of citing are highly dependent on this part of your paper.
- Use a good quality bibliography for your Introduction and Background sections. Avoid citing papers that are not relevant for your article theme or from lesser known conference abstracts. In most instances, references add value to a paper.
- Avoid citing your own articles or numerous previous articles published in the JSR Journal.
- Use themes and subjects that have not been studied previously. Original content and novelty are essential!
- Write your article employing the best English language skills (preferably American English). If you have difficulties in this regard please use the counsel of a native English speaking colleague. JSR can help you also. JSR can help you in this regard.
- Proofreading your paper’s final version more than one time is also essential. Be objective with your research results and try to become your own reviewer.
- Use a clear, concise and easy to understand writing style. You certainly want your article to be read and cited by a large number of readers! Make sure your message is easy to understand. Use an impersonal style, avoiding the use of first person sentences. Write short, easy to follow and logically sequenced sentences and phrases.
- In the cases when the article is based on quantitative research, use statistical software programs to process your data. Employ the latest academic trends and pay close attention to statistical tests and their interpretation. Start with clearly stated hypothesis and process the results to confirm or dismiss them.
- Be objective when it comes to your research results. Identify and mention your research limitations and advantages.
