Writing a publishable quality article is a skill that can be learned with practice. The first step is to create a structure, a skeleton of the article around which you can develop the body. It is important that your article be concise and to the point so that it can be read at a glance by the general public. Avoid using big legal jargons and try to make it as simple as possible.
