Abstract

Nearly to 70% of articles in high-impact journals are published in English, with a gradual increasing due to the explosion of open access biomedical publications. Publications in English within the scientific community. For the advancement of science, it is fundamental to allow communication in a language where all of us can generate comprehension and discussion of technical concepts, as in the case in biomedical articles. English has been accepted as one of the most widely used languages in international scientific activities. One of the main problems faced by Spanish-speaking scientists when publishing their work in a non-native language like English, is the difficulty in handling grammar rules, often requiring manuscripts be corrected by English-speaking people in order to have a better chance of acceptance in the different international journals. The objective of this article is to provide some general recommendations to take into account in the process of organization or in the writing process of a scientific article in English.
