I remember trying to write my first manuscript. I felt so confused and the whole process was such a headache! Why was it so hard? Why did I feel like a failure?
Scientific writing is crucial to our success as scientists, but why does nobody tell us we actually need to learn how to write?
Once I realised I wasn’t going to improve my writing skills overnight, I started to take all of the advice and feedback anyone was willing to give on my manuscripts.
Even though I never overcame the fear of seeing red ink all over the pages, I used my supervisor’s comments as an opportunity to improve.
Slowly and gradually, my confidence and writing skills improved. After a while, I even started to help younger students.
Now that I’m a scientific editor, I know for certain that every single scientist struggles (or at least used to struggle) with writing manuscripts.
That’s why I’ve created this simple, free checklist to help you write better manuscripts and avoid the 40 most common mistakes I see in the papers I edit.
The checklist covers exactly what you need to check before you send your manuscript to the journal.
I’d love to know what you think of the checklist!
