Do you find yourself writing too long sentences in your manuscript? Did
you ever re-read your sentence and struggled to understand its meaning?
If yes, you may be suffering from something called prolixity, or in simple

Every scientific paper is built upon previous research. Authors refer to the previous studies to find their topic of research and also to write their own medical manuscript. You must give credit to this previous research through citations and references.
Depending upon your field of research, there could be more than 100 different papers, conference reports, and articles which you refer as resources. And before submitting your medical manuscript, you have to cross-check all references; cite t

Peer reviewers are essentially experts in their field of study. They improve the quality of your medical manuscript through their comments.
As an author, you pray that your manuscript gets accepted. You don't feel
