Publishing in a peer-reviewed international journal indicates the significance of a research finding and is a must for all scientists. Many of the findings are left unpublished in the thesis of several master and Ph.D. students because they lack training in scientific writing. Sometimes, important discoveries remain unnoticed if a manuscript is not organized. These problems can be solved by training future scientists about scientific writing skills.
I am very pleased to see that ACHIEVERS LEAGUE USA has developed a comprehensive scientific writing coursework for students all over the world. This piece of work is a must for all future scientists and offers latest knowledge about scientific writing. This coursework is designed in a unique way that teaches students empirically. Instead of reading and memorizing, students learn by doing and reviewing assignments. This is the kind of learning they will be exposed to if they pursue graduate training or research-based career. It will be very helpful in writing manuscripts, articles and books. I strongly recommend reading the “Abstract” and “Introduction” section for writing a scientific research paper. The work will soon be available as a book in the international market.
