Sorry to trouble you all but worrying about the correct use of the word export vs exports for a publication in a scientific journal about riverine nutrient export(s) !!
At present, i have written sentences such as 'the export of X is affected by X', which i feel confident is grammatically correct.
However, i am unsure whether to use export or exports in sentences such as the following ...'reducing export(s) of X and X'.
Would love any advice about the correct form. I am English if that makes any difference, although am publishing in an international journal.
Thank you !!
