Kick start your report writing by using this free Manuscript or project report template (link will download a word file) then replace the text where indicated with your information.
This document is formatted and organised to match the requirements for most journal article-type writing including MRes or undergraduate project reports. Using this you can’t really go too far wrong! It is also good place to start for most first drafts for primary data manuscripts; a few tweaks for specific journal style and you will be ready to submit.
It also includes very short instructions for what to write in each section to help you get going. If you want more comprehensive guide to each of the different sections, you could look at our writing guides sections.
Writing shouldn’t be hard, hopefully this helps. Any comments or suggested improvements are appreciated.
