Abstract

Academic research writing (manuscript writing) involves many shortcomings and challenges, but the process is systematically structured. Overcoming these challenges should involve proper adherence to steps and processes when carrying out academic studies. These challenges are a continuous worry for beginners and emerging researchers. Also, the components that constitute academic writing and its structure are continuously debated by scholars globally, especially for beginners and emerging researchers. The purpose of this chapter is to provide guidelines and steps that can assist researchers (beginners) to write manuscripts that meet the requirements of journal editorial boards, their audiences, as well as theses/dissertations for academic institution requirements and expectations of examiners. To achieve the purpose of this chapter, various vital variables and constructs were explained in clear and understandable terms in line with literature review of precious studies. The constructed ideas make the chapter useful for beginners who are writing manuscripts, theses, and dissertations.
