Getting yellow-carded by journal referees is no fun either, but at least you'll stay in the publication game.

As I detailed in part II of this series, authors used to publishing without putting in their best effort or bullying their way to publication over the advice of reviewers and editors can result in publications having lesser impact than they might have had with greater diligence. In this post, I address the sins of verbosity and poor writing. Both are endemic in writings by physicians.
Radiology teams can look within for change leaders instead of hiring certificate-armed "expert" consultants.
