“The main objective of scholarly writing is clear communication, which can be achieved by presenting ideas in an orderly and concise manner. … Precise, clear word choice and sentence structure also contribute to the creation of substantive, impactful work.” (American Psychological Association, 2020, p. 111) 

“Publication decisions for a journal rest in the hands of the editors who are responsible for the quality and content of the journal. Journal editors look for manuscripts that (a) contribute significantly to the content area covered by the journal, (b) communicate with clarity and conciseness, and (c) follow the journal’s style guidelines.” (American Psychological Association, 2020, p. 376-377)
