Although I have published many papers in my career, I found the ten points, very helpful and a reminder of what makes a good paper. Starting of course from a good question, followed by good experiments, analysis of the data, and culminating in focused, and at the same time interesting writing. Thank you for conveying the message so clearly and to the point! It will help many scientists imporved their science and write better papers, myself included!
