Research article quality, Common errors in research article, Academic writing.


Nowadays writing a quality article is an essential requirement in the world of science and technology if reaching end-users is going to be one of the main objectives, from an expert’s point of view. The research attitude of budding researchers, in most of the cases, either prompts or motivates them to share and express their ideas to the research community in general, resulting in a considerable increase in the number of articles that get published over a period of time. Unfortunately, there is a growing popular discontent among the researchers in terms of the quality of articles that get published and its influence on an author’s achievement index, an index which is predominantly a ‘number-of-publications-based’ one. This paper is an overview of the current trends in the quality of research articles focusing on the language used, in particular, and suggestive of some recommendations. Moreover, it is an attempt to list chosen excerpts from some of the ‘faulty academic research papers’ to illustrate the crux of the issue. Anyhow, it should be noted that any reader audience should not be misled by the use of ‘faulty’ since it concerns a certain paper’s language quality.
