How to Write a Scientific Article
This chapter aims to give guidance for young trainees aiming to publish their first scientific article. It is our purpose to guide you through the process of writing a scientific article in a case-based approach. After reading the chapter, the reader should have a readily available guide to use for writing such articles and enjoy the process of scientific writing. Case examples should further illustrate the common pitfalls of scientific writing. In addition, these should help the reader to develop an appreciation for discerning both good and bad scientific writing.
