Learn English – an alternative way to say “Note that” in academic writing?


In my academic writing, when I want to connect the context and emphasize something, I almost always use a sentence structure like this:

Note that…

An example in an academic paper is given below:

So my question is:

What is an alternative way to say, "Note that…," in academic writing in the above context? Thank you.

The best advice is: don't. Just leave it out. Readers do not like being constantly (or even repeatedly) reminded to pay attention.

If it is a fact, state it as a fact. If it is an opinion, clarify that it is an opinion. If it is somehow related to other statements, use connectors to clarify or emphasize that relationship, such as however, moreover, nevertheless, alternatively, therefore, despite.
