There are many reasons why surgeons want to publish their research. For some, it is a requirement of their position, or they wish to enhance their career and gain promotion. For others, there is a moral obligation to the study participants to disseminate the knowledge gained and improve the understanding of the orthopedic community. The best research approach is to choose a topic that you are passionate about and relevant to your clinical practice. Writing a manuscript is hard, and it is the last 10% of effort that makes the difference in producing a publishable paper. If the topic does not interest you, it is easy to let the manuscript preparation slide when you reach the final difficult stages. Don't be afraid of controversial issues to produce some of the most exciting papers. Several scientific articles can be made: Case reports, case series, case-control study, controlled study, systematic review or meta-analysis, and laboratory-based research. The goal of the manuscript is to present the importance of your research and your findings. Writing needs to be precise and compact, utilizing short, simple sentences while avoiding complex scientific jargon. You should be explicit and clear in describing the benefit of your paper. The paper's title should convey the impact of the results concisely. It should avoid reporting the results within the title. Writing a scientific manuscript requires a standardized construction, introduction, methods, results, and discussion (IMRAD). Although most scientific manuscripts are written in English, many readers will not have English as their primary language. It is imperative that the manuscript is easy to read and well organized and the language is simple.
