Are you in the process of writing your very first academic manuscript? I remember the many drafts of that first paper I sent to my supervisors. Luckily, the ink of “track changes” never gets depleted, because I used up a lot of ink. Even though I read many papers, when it came to writing my own, I went along and wrote a cumbersome title, an overweight abstract, and an introduction that had no flow with a focus which was completely missing.

Click HERE to access the solution for you! This resource will help you construct that first draft. It will guide you through the steps to get your research written up in a format ready to submit to an academic, peer-reviewed journal in the health sciences sphere. I recommend that you work through the steps and develop the various sections of your manuscript as you go along. The first draft which will subsequently be produced, will raise your, as well as your supervisor’s happy hormones. In addition, there will be no loss of precious time, time that should be spent on impacting policy and practice.

The resource was developed by Michele Verdonck from the University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia and I, Benita Olivier, based at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa.

Use, enjoy and share this resource with those in need and make a difference in another person’s life.
