The statement “Publish or perish” is an important warning to those working in the scientific field. Modern science is an archive of scientific articles. The aim of the researcher is to make new scientific contributions to this archive. Writing an article is an active part of the research. The article provides the reader with information on the latest developments in the subject and the hypotheses discussed. The scientific archive provides the basis for solving most problems and developing new models. The research is to solve a complex problem and present it to the reader in a clear and simple way. Research is not to put a complex problem into another complex structure. The journal editor requests that the accepted article contains new information. This is a necessary for him and for the journal. The investigator must empathize with the Editor and editorial board. All journals need the
published articles the journal should be cited. Because the impact factor of the journal is very important for the editor and editorial board. The impact factor (IF) is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year. It is used to measure the importance or rank of a journal by calculating the times it's articles are cited. The calculation is based on a two-year period and involves dividing the number of times articles were cited by the number of articles that are citable. As a result, the conditions for publishing a good publication: it needs to select new title and new subject to contribute to science. The correct selection of research design should be obtained by using the right statistical consultancy, using the right methods and writing the article in a clear and understandable manner.
