Here are the types of manuscript writing:
Ahead, we will explain all these kinds so that you get a clear idea before you start your manuscript writing.
This is the most common and popular type of journal writing and is also known as original article, research article, or article, based on what is your journal type. The Original Research format is helpful in different types of studies including writing a full introduction, methods, result, and discussion section.
Rapid communication help editors find an interesting paper that would interest many researchers and may help them stimulate research in the field. These rapid communications are published after the submission of a journal so that the format will help the researcher to get quicker results. The format usually has strict length limits so that no researcher can include any additional experimental detail until the original manuscript is written.
This type of manuscript may also be referred to as a Short report or Letter.
Review Articles helps in offering a complete summary of research on a certain topic and its vision on how it is affecting our state. This type of manuscript is often written by a leader who is an expert in their field of study.
The review articles are often widely read by people/researchers especially those who are looking for a full introduction to a field.
TIP: If you want to write a review but not invited by journal then be sure to check the website to avoid facing unsolicited Reviews. Also, it is clever at your end to write an enquiry letter to the journal editor beforehand to find out whether the reviews are commissioned or not.
