Language polishing skills of SCI papers

  SCI papers need to be translated from Chinese into English and polished before they can be published. The editor of this issue has sorted out some skills about language embellishment of SCI papers.

  In addition to making the reviewer understand your expression easily, we also need to do a good job in the content of an English paper:

  1. SCI thesis titles should be innovative and concise. Innovation is because the purpose of writing scientific and technological articles is to report new scientific and technological progress. The lack of innovative factors will lose the significance of publication. However, the use of innovation should be based on the existing scientific research achievements. Too much "creation" may be counterproductive.

  2. SCI paper abstracts should be clear and organized. During the actual review process of a well written SCI paper, the reviewer may browse the brief content throughout. If reviewers see that the abstract is not clearly expressed, their first impression will be greatly reduced.

  3. The experimental operation of SCI paper writing should be true. When encountering the deviation found in the experimental data, we must not make a subjective assumption, and we should completely follow the actual experimental results. Repeating experiments or increasing the number of samples is the best way to obtain data. Even if there is a deviation between the expected experimental results and the actual experimental results, SCI papers should be written according to the actual experimental results. Sometimes differences may also make this article controversial and become the highlight of the article.

  4. SCI paper references and introduction specifications. The standardization of references can make readers understand the basis of the article, and also show their accurate positioning of scientific research and respect for knowledge. It is recommended to use document management software to edit references, which can avoid all kinds of detail errors. The introduction of SCI should briefly and clearly introduce the important position of the development process of scientific research content in this research direction.

  The following four kinds of references are often cited in SCI papers. The first is about specific experimental methods, the second is supporting or conflicting evidence, the third is more useful similar literature, and the fourth is historical and meaningful literature.

  In fact, in the final analysis, the SCI references you cite must be helpful for your paper publication before they can be cited. Among them, there are also principles for quoting references. Generally, when quoting references, you should quote directly relevant, specific and clear documents to prove your point of view. There are also two principles that must be remembered: first, you should quote original documents, and never quote second-hand documents, so as to avoid unnecessary errors or conflicts.

  Secondly, you should correctly quote the literature you have read. If you quote the literature according to your own memory, there is often the possibility of mistakes, so the literature should be digested by your mind, and the quotation should be cautious. After all, this is academic creation, and you should know that you must treat the academic with a rigorous attitude, and you must not be careless and half hearted.

  5. The overall format of SCI papers should be standardized. SCI papers have clear paragraphs and clear typesetting, which is conducive to the review of reviewers. Leave blank lines between paragraphs of SCI papers to make the articles look concise and clear. The body, title and references of SCI papers are distinguished by different fonts.
