    Default Need an Opinion

    Not sure if the sentence needs to be edited.

    • There are very few, if any, surprises appearing in scientific papers of this sort, and these papers have scientific value by extending the realm of the known by additional increments.

    Thanks

    Thanks
    It's not wrong. Here's one shortened version:

    Very few, if any, surprises appear in this sort of paper, whose scientific value lies in extending the realm of the known by additional increments.

    But you wouldn't write this in the paper itself.
