Checklist for Scientific Papers

Most researchers know the basics of writing a good paper but time constraints often lead to key aspects being forgotten.

This checklist will help you put together a well-structured paper and avoid some basic mistakes in English. Remember most papers get rejected due to a poor structure or because the purpose of the research is not clear.

Revise your scientific paper using our checklist before you submit it to us for editing. You will produce a better paper and we will need less time to edit!
