Results and Discussion Make R&D concise but informative. your V Focus on the important parts, not the small details. Remember that discussion of unexpected results is often as valuable as focusing on the expected findings. References Make sure that your reference section is up to date by including current literature. Make use of reference management software! It will save you much time. Timing Block out times for writing. Consider having regularly scheduled times to write. Choose the times according to when you tend to function best. Citing In general, use your own words. When using others' words, put the material in quotation marks if it's short; indent it if it's long. Always cite the source if a fact or idea isn't your own. Writing Avoid very long paragraphs and sentences. Consider using headings, bullets, italics and boldface (but don't overuse these). V Make easy-to-understand graphics. Editing Before submitting your manuscript to a journal, read the final version several times.
