Writing for ACTA Orthopaedica et Traumatologica
Writing a scientific paper that will get published is one of the most rewarding achievements in a medical career. Once the privilege of few scholars, medical writing currently is feasible for anyone, and a must for career advancement and personal reputation. Writing a paper provides intellectual stimulation, generates discussion, advances discipline, and enhances authors’ reputation. However, medical writing should include medical knowledge, expertise in writing, and special considerations and rules, including formal writing and easiness to understand.
Writing and publishing depends not only on the methodology used and quality of data analysis, but also on how the paper is written. A clear and concise language will help Editors and Reviewers concentrate on the scientific content of the paper and thus facilitate the peer review process. English language grammar and syntax is usually edited by the office and the assistant Editors. Occasionally, English language editing is extremely difficult, and substantial work may be required, mainly in cases where the authors’ English proficiency is low. In those cases, we recommend manuscript editing by a professional or a native speaker prior to submission.
