Abstract

Whether you are preparing a paper to share results with your peers or as proof of achievement for promotion, a good research paper must always be an informative, concise and honest account of the work done. It must also follow the standards prescribed by the journal. No matter how good you think the paper might be, reviewers and editors must also think it is a good paper before it can be published. Their role is to ensure submissions are scientifically, logically and grammatically sound and most importantly, readable. Over a 50-year career in forage research and development in Australia and overseas, I have been both author and reviewer, and present here a number of hints that I believe will help intending authors avoid some of the pitfalls I have encountered. While information exists on general scientific writing (Simon et al. 2020) this paper is specific to Tropical GrasslandsForrajes Tropicales (TG-FT), but does not replace “Author Guidelines” for publication in the journal and should be viewed as an adjunct to it.
