If you are using English regularly as a means of communication, you need to get good reference books, in particular a grammar and a dictionary.
You will obviously need a dictionary which translates your own language into English, but you will also need a good English-English dictionary.
The type of dictionary you use will be determined by where the journal for which you are writing is based.
The Oxford Dictionary for Writers and Editors is an invaluable and relatively inexpensive tool which is invaluable for checking the spelling of awkward words, as well as other issues of language usage such as spelling and capitalization.
