Research Publication Writing
Predatory journal is a term, coined by Jeffrey Beall, to describe publishers who are more concerned with profit than ethics. These journals are scams. They prey on unsuspecting researchers, often targeting third tier economic areas, and masquerade as legitimate publishers. Predatory journals usually promise rapid review and publication in a leading journal. However, the reality is that these journals often have little to no peer review or editorial contributions before publication, are not indexed in research databases, and cost thousands of dollars to publish with them. Many will not notify the authors of fees until after article acceptance. Some even charge fees at submission.

Reference managing software simplifies research publication. You don't need to keep track of who you cited, in what order, or whether your reference list includes only who you cited in the paper. Software such as Endnote and Mendeley partially automate these time-consuming tasks and make your research life easier.Unfortunately, reference managing software is not interchangeable. A MS Word document that is formatted using Mendeley, cannot be then formatted with Endnote. Reference lists though, can be interchanged between software. Therefore you can use Mendeley with one research article and Endnote for another.For each research article, it is best to have all authors use the same piece of software. However how do you choose? Which is better? "Better" is often subjective. Each piece of software has their own strengths and weaknesses. In this guide, we will compare Endnote vs Mendeley to help with your decision making.

Before submitting your article for peer review, it is important to make sure that the reference style of the journal is followed. Each journal will have their own preferred style for the in-text citations and the reference list. Failure to follow the journal reference style could result in immediate rejection by the editor. The best way to simplify this process is to use citation managing software. Mendeley and Endnote are popular choices. You can format your research publication in your preferred style as you write, then change it accordingly to the journal's preferences. In this guide, we will explain how to style your references for journals using Mendeley.

When preparing research publications, abstracts are often overlooked. This is bad practice because along with your title, it provides the first impression of your research. If your abstract is for a research article, then readers will often decide from it whether or not to read your paper. A well-written abstract can be the difference between conference acceptance and rejection.We present a guide for writing an effective abstract, whether for your research article or conference presentation.

Research article writing is a skill and, like any other skill, needs to be practiced and honed. No matter how elegant we think our prose, there is always room for improvement. But you may wonder: why do I need to improve my writing – I write perfectly well?While we may write so WE can understand our own academic writing, there is always someone else who needs to read it. Most importantly, colleagues, journal reviewers, and grant committees. Confused writing can anger journal reviewers (and editors), leading to major revisions or even rejection.The following are 10 tips for improving your research article writing, and your overall success as a researcher. If you cannot properly communicate your research, then you cannot get funded, published, or acknowledged.

You can write the article in any order you choose (some prefer to write it narratively, while others may compose the readings or describe the evidence first), but here are some key points for writing effective academic articles:
