Writing a text on a scientific paper has been obscured as a difficult task since ages. In this paper the author revisited ancient text (Charak Samhita) guidelines in the context of Shastra Gunas. Contemporary directions provided by different journals & publishers in their respective fields were also reviewed. The recommendations from both ancient and modern descriptions were analyzed. The purpose was to understand the depth of about ancient Indian knowledge, about writing and presenting empirical studies in front of the society and experts. Most of the matter was found similar or complimentary to each other. Some difference in expressions could be noticed like the contemporary instructions were focused on presentation of data in terms of diagrams and tables. The emphasis was mostly laid down by quantitative studies. However the ancient text described more about qualitative studies. Certain unique features like necessity of suitable examples and operational definitions were included in those times. The conclusion was drawn that Shastra Gunas told in Charak Samhita can be practically followed even today with full authenticity and command. 5000 years back also the empirical studies were presented in a meticulous and disciplined manner.
