Here I have the following paragraph, (this is from the beginning of paragraph)
Of these approaches, the model driven categories opt for pre-defined model libraries (AAA, 1999; BBB, 1998). Among other changes are the recent presentations of a building reconstruction approach by CCC (2010) adopting Bayesian Decision rule to optimize parametric blocks placed on 2D-supports, and an introduction of generative statistics by DDD (2013) to a reconstruction scheme, where pre-defined primitives have been combined and merged into an entire roof.
[Here, AAA, BBB,CCC and DDD are names of the researchers]
My questions are, in academic writing, is it common to start a sentence (actually a paragraph) with OF and does this paragraph is well accepted even in higher impact factor journals.
or any suggestion from Native English speakers are also welcome, because I have been recommended to get their support.
