Rather than being considered as an activity separate from research itself, writing a good paper provides a framework for developing the rationale of meaningful scientific inquiry. It is an inherent part of research, through which the researcher is able to locate his/her work in the broader context of the literature, identify a goal or hypothesis, develop and describe the necessary methodology, and finally interpret findings in coherent manner. Thus, the anatomy of a good journal article is a reflection of the researchers thought processes. This talk consists of two parts.  In part 1, Prof Ir Dr Foo discusses some common practices in journal editorial, based on his experience serving as Chief Editor, Subject Editor and Guest Editors in various international journals. In part 2, he shares the effective ways to write up key parts of a journal paper, with emphasis on the aspects that are common to effective scientific articles regardless of disciplines.
