Revising and resubmitting your manuscript is a common part of the publishing process.

Have you noticed that when you are doing revisions, it’s easy to add content that was not a part of the original submission? That opens the door to introducing errors.

How can you avoid mistakes when revising?

Use a checklist!

In A Checklist: Revising and Resubmitting a Paper for Publication,” AJE offers a 6-point list of things for you to check before resubmitting your manuscript.

The checklist is especially helpful if multiple authors have revised the manuscript!

Manuscripts are not the only document that you need to write well when aiming to publish your work.

You also need to convey the importance of your research with clarity in abstracts, grants, and theses. Yet each document varies in form and purpose. It can be challenging for any author to remember the aim for each.

This week we are sharing AJE’s collection of resources for writing more than a manuscript in “Research Abstracts, Grants, and Theses: More Resources to Help You Write Effectively.”

You’ll find tips for:

  • Crafting a strong abstract
  • Writing applications for grants and felllowships
  • Finishing your thesis or dissertation

Resources for Science Communication series: Week 5
This is the fifth installment of our Resources for Science Communication, series that we’re sharing thanks to our partners at American Journal Experts. (Click here to see previous topics.)

Weekly until the end of October, we’ll be posting useful content from AJE’s Author Resource Center focused on successful research communication.

In last week’s roundup of resources, one of the articles we shared was “Choosing the Right Journal for Your Research,” by AJE.

It may seem easier to evaluate and choose a journal after your research is complete. However, choosing a journal while still working on your research has many benefits.

For instance, your journal choice could affect your experimental design or even parts of your manuscript. Knowing that early in the research process could help you save time.

To learn more about the benefits of early journal choice, read AJE’s article, “Why Choosing a Journal Early in the Research Process is Important.”

We also included a free downloadable template to help you keep track of journals!
