WHSL Oral Health: Where to publish: DHET Accredited Journals

This LibGuide directs students and staff to information resources relating to Oral Health

Where to publish?

How to Write up Your Research

You may find this WHSL guide to research in the biomedical sciences helpful. Academic writing style is different to the style you use in business reports, or casual correspondence. You need to use formal language and spelling (no mobile phone text words!); be precise and very specific; use impersonal language; and to make use of active verbs, such as "attends" or "states" or "refutes". 

Editing and proofreading your work is equally important before submitting your research report for examination.
