Product Description

Writing and publishing journal articles are crucial to scientific careers. Unfortunately, many young scientists find the process of communicating scientific information effectively a complete mystery. By providing practical, readable, and sometimes humorous guidance, this book helps researchers gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence to succeed in communicating about their work.

This seventh edition of How to Write and Publish a Scientific Paper contains 41 chapters focused upon two separate tasks: how to write the respective sections of a scientific paper, and how to publish the paper. Other related topics include approaching a writing project, following ethical principles in scientific publishing, preparing oral presentations and poster presentations, writing grant proposals, and working with the popular media. The authors have also provided considerable guidance on appropriate scientific writing style, as well as an extensive list of words and expressions to avoid—and supplied the language to substitute for them.

Book Description

Writing a scientific paper and having it accepted for publication by a respected journal isn't an impossible task, nor does it require the ability to form complex sentence structures and use esoteric vocabulary words. Achieving this goal does require good organizational skills, the ability to follow directions, and writing that is simple and straightforward.
