Model or Template
  • MODEL a paper in the journal that you wish to
    publish, better by English speaking author
  • Get help from the language, not the science
  • 3 basic characteristics
  • Journal must be good
  • Within the last 2-3 years
  • At least one author is a native speaker of
    English

INOCHE scope
  • Inorganic Chemistry Communications is an
    international journal dedicated to the rapid
    publication of short communications in the major
    areas of inorganic, organometallic and
    supramolecular chemistry.

Types of contributions
  • Short Communications important reports of
    unusual urgency or original advances in inorganic
    and organometallic chemistry for which rapid
    publication is justified.
  • the Introduction, Experimental, Results and
    Discussion sections combined into a single
    untitled section
  • Mini Reviews generally upon invitation

14
Basics???????????
  • Editors of science journals want all ideas in
    language that is directly
  • to-the-point
  • straightforward
  • in as few words as possible
  • In the voice of science
  • clarity is crucial clear, precise, accurate
  • ?? ?? ??

15
First draft ??
  • Need not be in English
  • Just to establish the skeleton, the bones of the
    article
  • Get all ideas down and establish the sequence of
    ideas on index cards
  • Arrange and rearrange the index cards for the
    most logical order
  • A sequence which is clean, precise, and without
    repetition

16
Introduction ??
  • Start broadly background
  • Narrow down related to your project and the
    specific question ? your aim
  • How you have tackled the question experimentally
    ? lead the reader into your results
  • Include a review of the literature newest, most
    recent, high listing journals

17
Experimental ??
  • Repeatable
  • Complete
  • Weight, mole, volume, .data in correct unit
    expression as the journal required
  • Instruments company, model

18
Results discussion
  • Start with your findings, reverse to introduction
  • how the results have addressed your aim?????????

Figure
  • Should include the following
  • The graphical display
  • The annotation axes, scale, unit, label, arrow,
    numbers, letters.
  • The figure title and legend
  • title first,then a, b, cin legend
  • Do not reiterate the contents of a figure legend
    in the text

a dog is shown the stomach is an internal organ.
30
Graph
  • A type of figure that provides summary of
    numerical data
  • More direct than data in a table
  • Useful for showing distribution of data,
    highlighting trends, summarizing relationships,
  • Characters must be proportional.

Colour illustrations
  • Illustrations can be printed in colour when they
    are judged by the Editor to be essential to the
    presentation.
  • Some journals no charge for the 1st page
  • No charge for electronic version

33
Tips for Achieving High-Quality Published Artwork
  • Submit originals
  • Use dark black ink on high-quality, smooth,
    opaque white paper
  • Use lettering that will be no smaller than 5
    points at final reduction. Helvetica or Arial
    works well for lettering
  • Use lines no thinner than 1 point
  • When possible, submit artwork that does not have
    to be reduced to fit a single column in the
    journal (3.25 in. across)
  • Use the best resolution available (graphics
    plotter, 600 or higher dpi laser printer)
  • Avoid textures and shadings.

34
Table
  • Three-line table format
  • Align to the left for words
  • Align to the right for numbers
  • Align according to the decimal point for
    non-intergals

Common mistakes
  • Not referring to a figure or table in the text
  • Referring to data in the text but not
    illustrating it with a figure or table
  • No scales or scale bars in figures
  • Too much data in one graph or table

38
Safety notes
  • emphasize any unexpected or new hazards
    encountered in experimental work reported.
  • Perchlorate salts of metal complexes with
    organic ligands are potentially explosive.
    Authors are requested to place a cautionary note
  • Chemicals that have to be dealt with in a hood
    fuming, poisonous, toxic,.

39
abstract
  • An extract of the essence of your work
  • a short statement of what was discovered, how it
    was done, how it fits with other research
  • for a communication, 1-2 sentences
  • for full paper, brief account of the results Less
    than 100 words

40
Graphical Abstract
  • pictogram and synopsis
  • a synopsis of maximum 50 words
  • a drawing or reaction scheme (pictogram)
    illustrating their work. The pictogram should
    measure 55x50 mm for direct reproduction. If
    reduction is needed, please make sure that the
    illustration is still informative upon reduction.

41
Keywords
  • A maximum of six keywords should be indicated
    below the abstract to describe the contents of
    the manuscript.
  • Keywords should be selected from the following
    classes theoretical methods, experimental
    methods, phenomena, materials, and applications.

42
Justification for rapid publication
  • Usually for communications
  • A description of the novelty and explanation of
    the reason for rapid publication
  • Real New findings not reported before
  • Unusual results

43
editing
  • Work in team no one writes or edits well enough
    to work alone, the English language is too
    slippery, you need other eyes and minds to help
    you
  • Avoid repetition?????,???,???,????!The only
    acceptable repetition is in the final summary
  • Plagiarism NEVER copy anything from others
    without fully acknowledging and referencing
  • 850 words for two-column page
  • 4 illustrations per page

44
Main reasons for rejection
  • Language
  • Scope too broad
  • Claim goes beyond the given data
  • Too lengthy with unnecessary details such as
  • introduction not to the point
  • discussion of obvious results
  • Failed to give appropriate credit to others
  • good references are important and essential

45
Things to avoid while editing
  • Repeated vocabulary
  • Unnecessary explanation or description
  • too much background or history
  • too many details about what was done, or
    details about unsuccessful work
  • information about research irrelevant to
    the topic

46
Avoid using terms like
  • Novel
  • In our laboratory
  • By us
  • During the research
  • In this group
  • Really, actually, truly,ambiguous intensifiers
  • Very ? worse than highly, strongly,
    surprisingly
  • A lot, many
  • Fascinating, interesting, important
  • etc

47
Editing verb tense ??
  • Simple present tense all results, as the finding
    is an all-time truth ??
  • Present progressive tense ????
  • Present perfect tense ??,???
  • Simple past tense for experimental ??
  • ??????

48

Our group has been proposing that We propose that
The reaction was continued The reaction continued
