Quick Tip 4: 案例修改展示

This time we’ll discuss an example from one of our papers. It’s a sentence that was changed by one of our editors. First, I’ll read the original sentence.

“D-dimer is a fibrin degradation product…”

This sentence appeared at the beginning of a paragraph in the Introduction. The editor realized that while this excerpt is correct, it might not be immediately clear to the reader what D-dimer is. Here’s what the editor changed it to:

“One such potential marker is D-dimer, a fibrin degradation product…”

At the beginning the editor added “One such potential marker”. Since the previous paragraph was discussing potential markers, adding this clause helps the reader understand how D-dimer relates.

Small additions like this can often help people understand your paper more easily.
