e.g.The research was published in public library of science one.

这项研究发表在公共科学图书馆的期刊上。

【正文】

1. According to a research at Cambridge University, it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be at the right place. the rest can be a total mess and you can still read it without problem. This is because the human mind does not read every letter.

  剑桥大学的研究表明:单词中字母的顺序如何不重要,重要的是第一个和最后一个字母的位置。这是因为大脑在阅读时不会读到所有字母。
