Preparing papers

Choosing a journal

Choosing the right journal for your research will save you time, assist you in preparing your manuscript according to the journal’s requirements, and maximise the chance of your work being accepted.

Top tips for writing your paper

With ever-increasing numbers of articles published, and less time to read them, a well-written paper will have a better chance of being read more widely.

Advice for non-English language speakers

If you are a non-English speaker then we strongly recommend that, at the very least, you get your manuscript checked by an English speaker.

Ethics for authors

Both types of journal maintain extremely high standards of peer review, production and publication.
