The editors of the best journals look for exceptional qualities, in particular, in two components of a research article – its content and its style. When it comes to content, editors are always looking for novelty and conceptual advancement. The result should not have been published before, but not all new concepts are worth publishing in a High Impact Journal, where the readership is large. The work should provide a significant step forward for the field and provide new direction.
The second element, style can easily be achieved with a strong title and summary. These are the first things a reader sees and sometimes the only parts that are read. Thus, it is essential to communicate key and autonomous points through the summary, which can be thought of as a “mini-version” of the entire paper. This nugget is where research authors will entice editors and readers into viewing the rest of the document. It is also a great approach to make sure that the abstract is database friendly, and contains relevant tags and keywords so that readers can find an article through search or online indexing services.
By relying on a spell checker, research authors might miss typing mistakes or make embarrassing mistakes, such as changing the genome to a gnome. Despite the above insights being fairly unknown amongst research authors, there are six crucial tips (detailed below) that are far more important to a research author who is looking to get his/her article published in a high impact journal.
6 Tips for publishing in a High Impact Journal
The Objectives Of The Research Carried Out Must Align With That Of The Journal (In Terms Of Solving A Real-World Problem)
The outcomes, the most novel research methods and perfect English won’t help a research author if the most popular journals don’t publish their work. Before a researcher can even consider submitting their article, they should ask themselves if they can describe their journal concisely. Specifically, influential high impact journals look for relevant works of literature, which must solve an important real-world challenge and have real implications.
Researchers can do a quick review by telling a family member, friend or neighbour without prior knowledge of their research. Do they immediately understand the problem the journal is trying to solve? Even if they answer the big problem, their research may not be powerful enough by nature, science or cells to count. These journals typically seek studies on a range of methods, parameters, model systems or whatever is appropriate for research.
Identifying & Addressing What Readers Of The Journal Are Most Likely To Look For
Research authors can’t force everyone to read what they write and if they don’t present their article appropriately they can reduce its potential impact. The readership of a scientific article is specialized, but they should never assume too much knowledge on the part of the readers. This is especially important in high impact journals, as one of the acceptance criteria is research with broad relevance. So while their readers are likely to be scientists not all of them will be experts in their field.
Researchers should read each sentence they wrote from the reader’s perspective and they should suppose their reader is a layman and write as easily as it allows their reader to understand their ideas very clearly. Researchers should also always ask what? why? and how? for every sentence they write. They should make sure that their article does not give the reader any ambiguity in any dimension whatsoever.
Approaching The Article Writing Process From The Point Of View Of The Reader
High impact articles need solid proof and noteworthy outcomes. So, researchers should always start by asking a big research question and forming a logical argument. They should seek to fill in as many gaps as possible in their story. Great research builds a complete picture of a system. A good research article is a clear, compelling story that should be written with a chosen scientific publication in mind.
Researchers should take care to avoid overly technical or specialized jargon and keep the reading fluid right through every sentence, paragraph and chapter of the article. Unnecessary punctuation can interfere with the flow. Explaining the steps involved in scientific solutions/methodologies will improve the reading flow. Repeating ideas or information can hinder circulation.
Coming Up With A Title For The Article That Is Truly Awe-Inspiring
The title of the article should be informative and tell the reader what the conclusion was. Titles that are clear and concise are the best because readers get to identify exactly what the document is about. Researchers shouldn’t underestimate the importance of a good headline and a good summary, these short blocks of text are often the final consideration when building an article and will receive many more views than the article itself.
These tricks should be used as a hook to attract readers (and publishers). Researchers should take care not to use specialized jargon, especially in the title and abstract, to publish journals in high impact journals.
Coming Up With A Clear Cut Summarization Of The Entire Research Article
The summary is one of the most important sections of a research article. Typically, it should concisely present the topic, declare the problem the researcher is trying to solve, summarize the principal outcomes and then offer an outlook of the possible benefits and applications of those findings. The first lines of the summary should provide a basic introduction to the field followed by context on the issues or problems in the field.
Researchers should aim to answer a specific research question. The summary should end with a conclusion or answer to the question posed, followed by an explanation of the more obvious implication or consequence of the outcome. In the results section of the summary, some details on the methods should be provided, but the authors should seek to strike a balance between too much and too little information.
Elucidating The Crux Of The Article With The Help Of Figures, Tables & Data
The numbers should visually represent the findings and they should be in a logical order and match the story of the article. Figures and tables (display elements) are often the fastest way to communicate large amounts of complex information that would be difficult to explain in text. High-quality display items make a research author’s work look professional.
As a result of this, readers will infer that a manuscript that is professional-looking is bound to contain good quality scientific data. In turn, readers may be more likely to trust the results and the interpretation of those results that the research author has put forth.
