How to Write about Scientific Research in Highly Citable Ways

How to Write about Scientific Research in Highly Citable Ways
No matter how significant the research you describe in a scientific article is and how passionately you wish to have a positive influence on your scholarly community, neither will earn you citations unless your research and your passion are presented effectively in an interesting and well-organised way. Readers (and this includes proofreaders and peer reviewers initially assessing your paper) have to be engaged by your writing and presentation and, once their attention is captured, it must be retained throughout the article, which also needs to be remembered as important and relevant to be cited.

For these reasons, any article you submit for publication should be designed to interest the reader immediately, and it should continue to captivate the reader’s attention through every one of its sections. An informative and catchy title combined with an accurate, concise and well-written abstract will accomplish the first, while smooth logical transitions between clear descriptions of background, methods, results and conclusions that emphasise the most revealing and significant details will cover the second. This is to say that your argument should follow a logical progression that will also make your research and discussion of it more accessible, more convincing and thus more citable. Interest and logic will together draw the reader through a well-written article from title to conclusion and even on to the tables and appendices beyond. Concise language is best when reporting methods and results, especially for readers with many demands on their time, which includes most scientists, and it also enables easy citation and quotation. Such an article is more digestible and more memorable, and only if your work and your presentation of it are understood and remembered as valuable by readers will those readers use and cite your article in their own research.

When writing up your research it is also essential to keep in mind that your text will stand alone (without your presence) when communicating with your reader, so your language must be accurate, professional, grammatically correct, precise and, when necessary, suggestive. For describing complex research, simplicity and clarity are most effective, difficult as they can be to achieve, and while unintentional and unnecessary ambiguity and uncertainty should be avoided at all costs, tentative conclusions, probable causality and other uncertain aspects of research and analysis should be clearly expressed as such.

Finally, it can be immensely helpful to share your article with a critical reader – a colleague perhaps, a professional proofreader or even a nonspecialist – to ensure that your written presentation of your research communicates what you intended and does so in clear and highly citable ways.
