For the in-class activity I have researched how to submit a manuscrpt to Advanced Robotics. The first thing that stuck out to me was that it must be an original work that you submit. It can not be under consideration, peer review, or accepted for publication or publsihed by another journal. There are also limits on word counts. An abstract must be included in written as well as image form. You must use consistent spelling. Single rather than double quotation marks should be used. No changes can be made to the submission unless there is an approval for a co-author. The manuscript must have author details. Up to 5 key words must be included to make the manuscript easier to find for interested parties. There must be funding details included. A biographical note shoould be included for each author. Must include supplemental online material. Figures, tables, equations, and units are required. You must pay for colored figures.
My chosen journal is blood cells, molecules and diseases. It not only talks about blood cells but covers the molecular basis of hematologic and the studies of the disease itself. In order to write the manuscript, you need to include the keywords and all figures with tables and ensure that all has been cited. Another thing to consider is to make sure that the manuscript has been spell checked and grammar checked. Before you begin you need to make sure you have the ethics in publishing and declaration of in interest. You also need to have it peer reviewed and the article structure incudes- Introduction, Material and Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, Appendices. Title page is also required where you need to put the title and author names and affiliations and corresponding author. Research data is good also.
To get a manuscript published on World Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology they give you a long list of guidelines your paper needs to follow. The first thing they focus on is being positive all authors and any other authorities all approve of the manuscript going in for review with no objections. The rest of the guidline shows you what kind of order they would want the paper to be in with what kind of topics and specific file sizes.
General - It looks like one block may have been used and quartered? The letters were 320 font not 80. The location had changed over the past week, the garden hose was most likely used and that resulted in its change of location/ presence in the photo and since the plant was in the middle of the hose it resulted in a trampling effect. The difference in photo resolution may have caused an inconsistency with the length of the specified arrows. The spaces between the photo’s looks as though it may have been doubled so each photo was moved 15 pixels as opposed to one photo in each direction
Photo A - the hand position was not completely specified, and the thumb is angled differently which may be due to the plant not longer being self supporting. The recreation looks like it had to hold the leaf fully out of the way where a the original needed to support the leaf slightly to keep it above the infected leaf. the photo was taken at more of an angle, because the plant was damaged it was no longer self supporting
Photo B - The camera location wasnt specified well enough, 5 feet was specified but not what was 5ft, the weed wasnt quite centered as specified but the angle wasnt specified well either. The galleries are much more visable which may have been a difference in exposure levels due to the presence of the shining white card and the dark blue card.
Photo C - I had described keeping the hand out of the photo and to be fair, he did exatly that I should of specified it was just the edge of the card in the photo instead, otherwise its a fairly good replication its just off slightly, and the rest of the plant being dead causes the other differences present
Photo D - The photo depicted the shade tree lab centered but not on the first quarter. The language may have been confusing to follow, extra buildings that were not specified are also visible. The map was stretched in the orginal which may have been due to the image having to be resized for the figure. Since photographs taken were not the same size as the originals taken, the proportions may have worked out in such a manner where the replicate didnt have to be stretched and
We had orientation on Monday. It was alright but I was kind of nervous. I paid attention to every detail that the student leaders whether it was academically or any resources that they provided to us. The speeches were very interesting. The police officer had some good pointers and I feel very safe on campus because of that speech by the officer. I would be spending a lot of time on campus studying and doing homework and all so that speech made me feel proud of the college I’m coming to. The next part of the orientation was doing a tour which was very nice. I really enjoyed that. I was very lost on how I would get from one place to another so that was very helpful. The library is full of so many options. It was great to learn about it. In fact, I might go and check out all my options. Then, we had lunch at the franklin dining hall which was really good. Big fan of their Mexican food. I have eaten at Hampshire and Berkshire but honestly my favorite one as one of now is Hampshire dining hall. After, we went to sign up for classes. I signed for my classes but I didn’t like the part where we had to wait because we were a big group mainly because some classes that I wanted to take were full. I had students helping me which I was iffy about but then I felt comfortable knowing she was the same major as me.

Complete this activity as background for discussing manuscript submission guidelines. Look through this list of life science journals and identify a journal that you might want to submit an article too. Google that journal to find their page of "instructions to authors" and look for their manuscript submission guideslines. Write two or three paragraphs as an In-class Exercise that briefly summarize the kinds of specifications that the instructions to authors require.
