Fig 1. Summary of a paper’s structural elements at three spatial scales: Across sections, across
paragraphs, and within paragraphs. Note that the abstract is special in that it contains all three elements (Context, Content, and Conclusion), thus comprising all three colors.

[Ten simple rules for structuring papers]

Principles (Rules 1–4)

  • Rule 1: Focus your paper on a central contribution, which you
    communicate in the title
  • Rule 2: Write for flesh-and-blood human beings who do not know your
    work
  • Rule 3: Stick to the context-content-conclusion (C-C-C) scheme
  • Rule 4: Optimize your logical flow by avoiding zig-zag and using
    parallelism

The components of a paper (Rules 5–8)

  • Rule 5: Tell a complete story in the abstract
  • Rule 6: Communicate why the paper matters in the introduction
  • Rule 7: Deliver the results as a sequence of statements, supported by
    figures, that connect logically to support the central contribution
  • Rule 8: Discuss how the gap was filled, the limitations of the
    interpretation, and the relevance to the field

Process (Rules 9 and 10)

  • Rule 9: Allocate time where it matters: Title, abstract, figures, and
    outlining
  • Rule 10: Get feedback to reduce, reuse, and recycle the story
