I have written thesis and manuscripts, thus I think I know how to complete a paper although it might take some time.
However my boss want me to write a manuscript outline specifically with what has been done and what need to do, so he can kick me out of his lab and have other personal complete the work and manuscript.

According to him, it seems to have kind of specific format need to fellow, and I would like to have it right first time so I can get him off my back.

So what is the difference between complete manuscript and manuscript outline?
I there specific format I need fellow? Is there example I can copy?
Is the format similar to grant proposal going work?

Any suggestion is welcome and Thanks :huh:

Since it is a "manuscript outline", just use a standard manuscript format (abstract, materials & methods, results, discussion, references), but do it in bullet format, rather than verbose. I don't know how you would do the abstract until the work is finished, but you could do the materials & methods, results, and discussion sections thus far, just use the headings you'd use to introduce a particular sub-section of the major section as a bullet, and under this list the salient points as bullet entries.

Why not ask him directly what format he wants it in?
