Preparing a scientific article and submitting it to an academic journal can be tiring and demanding. Academic journals can return manuscripts for different reasons. For instance, poor quality of writing is a frequently met problem.

“English is not my native language.”

“I cannot be sure if my article has a clear and flowing style.”

“I am afraid that the journal rejects my article.”

If the expressions above worry you, you are definitely in the right place. I will cooperate with you to make your article free of errors.
 
How to publish your paper in academic journals

Zeynep Ozbilge

I hold a Bachelor of Economics degree from Istanbul University* and a Master’s degree in European Union Economics from Marmara University*. Since I was always interested in the field of agricultural economics, I conducted research in the same area. Two of my scientific papers were published in online journals between 2007-2016. Furthermore, a research center published the updated version of one of these papers in a book, after which my career began. References After years of experience both as a researcher and peer reviewer, I decided to establish my website and give service to researchers who have problems with academic writing in English. *Turkey

How Can You Publish Your Paper in  Academic Journals? 

When I was working as a peer reviewer in academic journals, I had the opportunity to read scientific articles. Each paper had different problems which required different solutions. To sum up,

  • Use short and simple sentences. As a sentence gets longer, it contains more mistakes.
  • Pay attention to spelling and punctuation.
  • Pay extra attention to grammar.
  • Prefer to use the active voice rather than the passive voice.
  • However, if you need to use the passive voice, do not exaggerate it. The passive should be used where it is really necessary.
  • Avoid slang. It looks unprofessional.
  • Avoid repetitions.
  • Always know that all proofreading services do not mean “perfect fit”. Try to find a proofreader who is an expert on your subject. Do not forget that such a proofreader will have knowledge of the technical terms.
