  • Know how to spell your scientific concepts correctly
  • Know alternative names/spellings 
  • In the sciences, you are not so much concerned with a thesis; your main focus is to explain aspects clearly.
  • Start Early. Proper research takes time. The better your research, the easier writing the paper will be.
