Writing Skills

Important Rules


  • 请不要抄袭整段或者整句的文字,这种行为后果极其严重,即使文章已被接收发表也会撤回,且取消你的学位、影响你的发展。
  • 假如你无从改动,切记用醒目颜色标记、斜体加引号、并且引上相关的文献。


  • 请使用本组的论文模板:CBB Manuscript Template Doc ico.gif
  • 字体:Times New Roman, 12pt
  • 行距:双倍Double Space


  • 使用一般现在时态,除了下述情况:
  • 当回顾相关研究工作,可能会用到过去时态,例如:In the past several years, efforts have been devoted to XXX.
  • 在某些情况下,真理性的结果需使用一般现在时态,即使所属的从句使用过去式,例如:Wang and colleagues performed comprehensive analyses and discovered that XXX is closely correlated with YYY.


  • 图:图中字体建议使用Arial或者Arial Narrow;EPS或TIFF格式,建议EPS;所有图的字体大小需一致,如下所示:
    • Title of x-axis and y-axis: 12pt
    • Scale of x-axis and y-axis: 10.5pt or 11pt
    • Title of panel (often on the top of each panel):13-14pt
    • Panel numbering in alphabet: 13-14pt
    • Size and layout: 220 mm (height); 85 mm (single column) or 170 mm (double column)
    • minimum resolution of 600 d.p.i.
  • 表:使用三线法画表
  • Figure legends和表的脚注:这部分包括可包含一到多个句子,注意都用被动语态,不出现”We“或”I“作为主语出现的句子
  • 能用图的就别用表
  • 图、表决定了你文章能否接收的一多半可能,多花点时间改进图表一点不为过,把图表所需展示的最重要结论能否一目了然的告诉读者
  • 另外,大多数读者只看图表

Writing Tips


  • 至关重要,好的名字会吸引Editor和Reviewer更易接收你的文章


  • 至关重要,Editor可能只读摘要就决定是否送审还是直接据掉
  • 另外,大多数读者只看摘要,然后决定是否看全文



  1. 讲述你论文所属的领域及其该研究的重要性,
  2. 回顾国内外相关研究的进展及其不足
  3. 基于这些不足,提出你论文要干什么或提出新的假说(创新点),论述采取主要的方式(不谈论结果)


  1. 假如可以的话,可分为多个子部分
  2. 在描述每个Result前,介绍下你为什么这么做,有什么假说或论点支持吗?
  3. 注意区分Results和Discussion,凡是能从图、表中直接观测到的为Results,其它的皆为Discussion
  4. 描述A与B存在有相关性或存在显著差异等结果时,建议使用相关统计检验,且采用下述描述方式:A is significantly correlated with B (R=XXX, P-value=XXX; Fig. XXX).


  1. 也可分为多个子部分
  2. 对Results中多个子部分的多个结果进行关联讨论
  3. 探讨结果为什么是这样,可能产生的原因及其后果,以及和现有相关研究是否一致;如果不一致(不用害怕不一致,不一致才是创新,都一致就没新发现了),分析其原因;
  4. 提出本文研究的不足之处(例如,数据量少、样本单一、方法可能有偏差、模拟结果而非真实情况等)或对后续研究的影响。




Write your manuscript logically, clearly and concisely.

  • Peer Revision: ask lab members to perform peer revisions at least three rounds.
  • PI Revision: Please make sure that your manuscript does not include any typos or grammatical errors, like "We does XXX".

I reserve the right to decline revising your manuscript if it contains low-level mistakes/typos or obvious bad logic.



Before submitting the manuscript to a journal, you must obtain approval from PI, including

  • which journal to be submitted
  • authorship and affiliations
  • authors' contribution and order

Code of Conduct for Scientific Practice

Valuable Traits

  • Think independently
  • Work collaboratively
  • Open-minded
  • Embrace failure
  • Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you will land amongst the stars.
  • The future depends on what we do in the present.

Computer Science

  • Export results into file: e.g., select page_title from ricepage where (page_title like 'BGI%' or page_title like 'Os%') and page_title not like '%/%' into outfile '/tmp/title.list';
  • Time synchronization: ntpdate
  • Cron and Shell can not share environment variables. When a c++ program that uses specific variables is set to run by cron, it needs to export variables.
