Tompson A. 2006. How to Write an English Medical Manuscript That Will Be Published and Have Impact. Surg Today (36)407-9

The authors explains how it need not be such a challenge if you follow a few simple rules based on the concept of “simplicity = clarity = effective communication.” , in fact any paper will have impact only if the readers can understand it easily.

Make sure that you use your own language to summarize points. Key words are good to focus on but keep trying to put things into your own words and re-read to compare the summary to the original. See more manuscript proofreading services
