Some tricks: Learning from own experiences
Starting point: Reading and reading papers
from both national and international
journals (particularly international journals).
Pay attention on how are the papers written:
Styles and systematic writing of the scientific
Dont forget to read the references cited in
the papers (situated in last part of the papers)
Get some ideas for collecting and
determining some titles and systematics of
the dreamt papers.
Research for Publication
Design a qualified research (not easy-but
possible) Need a collaborative research?
There are numerous competitive grants Need
a qualified scientific proposal?
Targeting the results of research for publication
particularly in International journals.
Focus in processing, evaluation and
interpretation of research data.
Creative in laying out of the data/results for
Writing and Writing
Writing: easy-but-difficult, so needs practices.
Systematic writing following the author
instructions/guidelines (note: every journal
is different)
Avoid too long sentences/compound
sentences need to be breakdown
Use the most appropriate words/terms
Published in the appropriate journals (field,
rank, citation index, etc)
