you need to say either 'an article' or 'articles'.

You are not giving them much motivation to spend their time writing an article for you...are you paying for them....if not, what other benefit will they get. Why should they bother? You have to make it sound as though there is some point in their doing it.

Hi,

Thanks for the advise. I have modified my previous draft but I think the letter ends quite abruptly and not too sure if the benefits are attractive enough for the doctors to spend time writing article for me. Please comment.
