These are just a few of the most common errors made by non-native English-speaking authors in their scientific writing. There are of course many more that can’t be dealt with here, but they all have the same result: a loss of clarity and/or introduction of ambiguity.
Keep the following points in mind to automatically improve the chance of getting your study published:
- Apply the 3 C's (clear, concise, correct)
- Remove repitition and redundancy
- Be attentive to detail to ensure your meaning is clearly conveyed in each sentence
- Keep sentences short and simple
The slogan for the Beijing Olympics was "One world, One dream;" when it comes to scientific writing you should think "One sentence, One idea." The simplest solution is always the best.
