Much worthwhile medical research is never accepted for publication or is ignored when published, often because it is poorly presented. The purpose of this article is to express in simple language how research is best presented in writing. Few actual data are given, though much experience is summarized. The result desired is greater ease, clarity, and effectiveness in communicating medical research. The principles presented here are intended to make medical research writing easier and clearer and to give the research itself more impact.
