WHAT AN EDITOR LIKES TO GET IN A MANUSCRIPT

WHAT AN EDITOR LIKES TO GET IN A MANUSCRIPT Abstract Of course the first thing an editor likes to get is a record of good original work; the next thing, is a paper that is well written and in readable form. One of the things that make an editor love an author is a paper that indicates a sense of responsibility for authorship; that he has taken the trouble to plan and develop it in logical sequence, and that he knows that good manners in writing require attention to spelling, grammar and punctuation. The writer who takes it for granted that the editor realizes that he can spell, punctuate and write grammatical English and so does not take the trouble to do so may have a fine indifference, but he has not specialized in knowledge of human nature.

Abstract

Abstract Of course the first thing an editor likes to get is a record of good original work; the next thing, is a paper that is well written and in readable form. One of the things that make an editor love an author is a paper that indicates a sense of responsibility for authorship; that he has taken the trouble to plan and develop it in logical sequence, and that he knows that good manners in writing require attention to spelling, grammar and punctuation. The writer who takes it for granted that the editor realizes that he can spell, punctuate and write grammatical English and so does not take the trouble to do so may have a fine indifference, but he has not specialized in knowledge of human nature. Editors are apt to be irritable, like other people, and to feel that it is not their place to labor over the References 1. The American Medical Association is glad to supply labels for this purpose on request.
