How to get your paper published in a scientific journal

In general, when you write a paper to submit to scientific journals there is high competition from other authors and research groups. It can be a challenge to get your work published, especially in your early career. It is important that you can create interest of your research results by capturing editors and reviewer's interest. It can be stressful getting a paper published in a scientific journal.

>> Here are some tips so you hopefully don't get stressed during the preparation of your manuscript, submission and reviewers' comments!

Second-Look Ultrasound Using Shear-Wave Elastography in MRI-Suspected Locoregional Recurrence of Breast Carcinoma

Eugen Divjak et al.

Although primary breast carcinoma is still the most common malignancy in women, management of this disease has changed in the last two decades, with the multidisciplinary approach leading to a decrease in local recurrence (LR) incidence rates. Reported rates vary depending on the advancement of the primary tumor as well as administration of adjuvant therapy: 3–5 % 10-year incidence rate is reported for early breast carcinoma with adjuvant radiotherapy, while 5-year incidence rates of around 35 % were reported in patients who did not receive adjuvant radiotherapy.
Simultaneous Application of Ultrasound and Sialendoscopy and its Value in the Management of Sialolithiasis

Michael Koch et al.

Sialolithiasis is the most frequent cause of obstructive sialadenopathy, accounting for approximately 60–70 % of all cases and up to 20 % of cases of unclear duct dilation or gland swelling. Sialolithiasis can be diagnosed using tools such as sialography, computed tomography (CT), three-dimensional cone-beam computed tomography (3 D CBCT), CBCT sialography, and magnetic resonance (MR) sialography, with a sensitivity and specificity of more than 90 %.
The EFSUMB Guidelines and Recommendations for Musculoskeletal Ultrasound – Part II: Joint Pathologies, Pediatric Applications, and Guided Procedures

Esperanza Naredo et al.

The second part of the Guidelines and Recommendations for Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSUS), produced under the auspices of EFSUMB, following the same methodology as for Part 1, provides information and recommendations on the use of this imaging modality for joint pathology, pediatric applications, and musculoskeletal ultrasound-guided procedures. Clinical application, practical points, limitations, and artifacts are described and discussed for every joint or procedure. The document is intended to guide clinical users in their daily practice.
