### Manuscript preparation workflow

Here is my manuscript preparation workflow:

1. Spellcheck
I use gEdit for my (latex) writing, it has built-in spellcheck (install via sudo apt install aspell-en, if
it doesn't appear like below).
 gEdit spell check

2. Grammar check
For free, I use textidote. For the paid version, I used Grammarly (also available for free with limited capability). Read this link on how to use textidote (in Indonesian language, right click > translate to English if you use Google Chrome). Another tool is proselint.

5. John Blake's Feature Detector
Language feature detectors can be used to assess how similar your text is in terms of these features compared to texts in your target publication.

6. Vocabulary profiler
Submit the text of your paper to see a breakdown of the percent of easy words, academic words, and specialist words.  A typical research paper has around 60% of easy words (K1) and between 10-15% words on the academic word list (AWL).
