Abstract

Having your work published in a good journal is the life-blood of research. Publications are the key element in scientific communication and influence future funding and cancer development for the authors. Every year more and more manuscripts are submitted and competition for acceptance is fierce. The editors of EJC recently held a workshop to discuss ways to improve manuscript writing, and this paper summarises their recommendations. Choose a title carefully, keep the introduction short, avoid confusing methods with results, and use figures wherever possible. Discuss only the relevance of new findings to published literature. Above all read the specific "instructions to authors" - it is surprising how often this is ignored - at peril!
