A well-structured manuscript allows readers and reviewers to get excited about the subject matter, to understand and verify the paper's contributions, and to integrate them into a broader context. However, many scientists struggle with producing high-quality manuscripts and are typically given little training in paper writing. Focusing on how readers consume information, we present a set of 10 simple rules to help you get across the main idea of your paper. These rules are designed to make your paper more influential and the process of writing more efficient and pleasurable.", "link"=>"http://www.mendeley.com/research/ten-simple-rules-structuring-papers", "reader_count"=>1631, "reader_count_by_academic_status"=>{"Unspecified"=>47, "Professor > Associate Professor"=>70, "Librarian"=>7, "Researcher"=>351, "Student > Doctoral Student"=>79, "Student > Ph.
