How to publish scientific work—part 1: writing the paper
Keywords:scientific article, journal article, writing
I here describe the way a bird study should be presented in Ornis Svecica and encourage amateur ornithologists to submit their work for official publication. I explain why the formal scientific format is necessary and why it may appear boring to read. I argue for a simple, straightforward style of writing (write as you talk) in active voice and discuss in some detail how the sections of a scientific paper should be written. I also describe the different sections that a scientific paper should contain. Finally, I show examples of a table and a figure.
