He has published more than 250 scientific papers, an editor of more than 30 scientific books with an H-Index of 53. Head: Cornell Kosher and Halal Food Initiative, Cornell University.

Prof. J. M. Regenstein highlighted eight significant points: Firstly, as graduate students, we must understand the journal’s scope and instructions to which someone intends to submit his/her manuscript. He further stated that the first idea someone should consider before drafting a manuscript is to ask oneself this question “DO YOU HAVE A STORY TO TELL?” Have you done an earnest piece of study and have you learned something expedient? Science is not all about collecting data, but how we express a unique scientific story or report, with a well-structured format, yet not natural.

Select the right journal: this is very important he said. He admonished graduates to make sure the journal publishes research articles that are related to your work or study. The decision should not base on impact factor, though important but individual statistics are of great significance in the long run. Find below the information on how a scientific paper should be formatted.

Order of a Scientific Paper:

  1. A title page
