How to Write a Good Scientific Paper: Significance
Author(s): Chris A. Mack

Paper Abstract

A paper must meet four criteria before it is publishable in a scientific journal. •The content of the paper must match the scope of the journal •The quality of the paper (method and execution of the research, as well as the writing) must be sufficiently high •It must present novel results (with the exception of review papers and the like) •The results must be significant enough to be worth reading about (and thus worth publishing). After a quick review of the first three items, I’d like to spend some time talking about the last item, paper significance.
