[Extract] There is an over-increasing expectation for trainees and junior doctors to publish more. It is very important to deal with some questions before you think about how to write a paper. The questions which should come to your mind are what should you submit for publication, when should you submit and where? Satisfactory answers to these questions will save your time and will help you to write in a systematic way which will have a better chance of your article getting published in a good reputed, international indexed, peer reviewed journal. The first step in developing a manuscript is to focus on a subject or problem that might be of significant interest to colleagues in the field. Next, the writer must conduct a detailed survey of the relevant literature, the results of which will help him or her to decide whether to actually write about the topic. It is important that before planning to write a scientific paper certain questions regarding its worthiness, the format and target audience should be addressed. These issues are crucial and determine how well a paper is written which will eventually be acceptable for publication.
