Whether you are preparing a conference paper for presentation or publication, polishing a professional report to share with your colleagues, or tackling the daunting task of editing and perfecting any kind of academic or scientific document, a qualified member of our expert team can provide invaluable assistance and give you greater confidence in your written work.
Our translation services for scientific and academic documents have also proven immensely helpful for many of our international clients.
The general structure of scientific research papers is IMR&D (Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion).
The information moves from broad to specific to broad again as seen in this diagram, the Introduction and Discussion taking up the most room in your paper and the Methods and Results usually being the shortest ad most focused sections.
Precisely where to begin is often a notoriously difficult question, with the right answer based on which aspects of your research you hope to emphasise and how you understand the interests and concerns of your readers.
Many scientists choose to write the introduction to a research paper after the rest of the manuscript has been drafted and a clear picture of exactly what they are introducing has emerged.
Many members of our team work predominantly on articles intended for publication in scholarly journals, ensuring that formatting and references conform to author guidelines with precision and correcting grammar, punctuation, spelling and simple typing errors so that our customers are able to report their research in the clear and accurate ways required to impress acquisitions editors and earn publication.
Our editing services for authors of scientific papers and books are especially popular, but we have the experience and expertise to proofread and edit books in every scholarly discipline as well as beyond them, and some of our carefully trained proofreaders and editors work exclusively on helping students improve the formatting and language of their theses and dissertations.
Establish the importance of your work by indicating what is lacking in current knowledge or practice and explaining how your research resolves the problem.
Citing and discussing a few key studies or review articles will help you clarify the context and value of your research, and in some cases you may need to include a brief review of the relevant scholarship in your introduction.
