Abstract

Publishing a manuscript is the logical result of any research study, allowing information to be shared with the scientific community, and providing personal satisfaction and career enhancement. The present article reviews some of the rules and recommendations for drafting the main sections of an original study (introduction, methodology, results, discussion). We discuss several aspects of the editorial process and the main reasons why manuscripts are returned. However well a manuscript is written, it cannot hide the methodological defects of a poorly designed study. The best way to avoid difficulties when writing is to have a good working hypothesis, clear objectives, and impeccable methodology.
