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!

Ultrasound Criteria for Diagnosing Spontaneous Cervical Artery Dissections

Christian Arning 

Dissection of the cervical arteries supplying the brain is a leading cause of ischemic stroke in young adults. Since stroke rarely occurs as the initial symptom of dissection, early diagnosis and treatment can prevent strokes. Imaging with ultrasound is beneficial, but there are some pitfalls to using this procedure. Examiners should have precise knowledge of the diagnostic criteria and be informed regarding differential diagnoses.


The Potential of Shear Wave Elastography to Reduce Unnecessary Biopsies in Breast Cancer Diagnosis: An International, Diagnostic, Multicenter Trial

Michael Golatta et al.

In this prospective, multicenter trial the authors evaluated whether additional shear wave elastography (SWE) for patients with BI-RADS 3 or 4 lesions on breast ultrasound could further refine the assessment with B-mode breast ultrasound for breast cancer diagnosis.

Normal Fetal Growth Profile at 10–41 Weeks of Gestation – An Update Based on 10225 Normal Singleton Pregnancies and Measurement of the Fetal Parameters Using 3D Ultrasound

Eberhard Merz et al.

This prospective study was conducted at a level III ultrasound center as a population-based cross-sectional study on 10 225 normal singleton pregnancies with a gestational age between 10 and 41 completed weeks. Gestational age was confirmed in all cases by an ultrasound examination with crown-rump measurement before 10 weeks of gestation. All examinations were performed with 3 D probes. BPD, OFD, ATD, and ASD were measured as outer-to-outer measurements (skin-to-skin) after identifying the exact biometric planes by 3 D multiplanar display. HC was computed using the formula . For AC the approximate elliptical formula AC = (ATD+ASD)/2 × 3.142 was used. Measurements of the limb bones included the entire ossified shaft.
