Advice on writing a paper
#1
I want to write a paper on a theory I have concerning a method used in Roman mosaics. I've never written one for this area before (bar the endless reams of tosh I had to write when I did my nurse training ;-) ) so I would appreciate any advice you can give.

Presently I have,
  • my theory
  • references to hard evidence which back aspects of this up, ie nail holes in the floors.
  • references to other evidence which I can make fit my theory, ie evidence of misaligned patterns which have been given one explanation for but I propose a different one.

I understand the usual intro/body/summary stuff and I reference as standard but what should I look at in particular to presenting a new theory?

I'm not too bothered about submitting it to various journals I just want to get it out in a well ordered way which looks professional.

Thanks
Lawrence Payne
