The four reasons for writing for publication are to advance professionally, to gain prestige, to obtain financial payment, and to receive psychological compensation. Editors reject manuscripts because they have printed similar articles, because the content of the rejected article has recently been published, or because the content of the article will not hold the reader's interest. To write a publishable article, the writer must consider the timeliness of the subject, his interest in the manuscript, the wide interests of the readers, and the objectivity, the usefulness, and the relevancy of the subject. Before sending a manuscript to a journal, one must consider the journal's editorial and review policy and its style sheet.
