How to Write and Publish a Scientific Paper
To be useful, scientific research needs to be explained clearly to others--to colleagues, to administrators, to foundations and governmental bodies, and to the public. This thoroughly revised edition of the classic How to Write and Publish a Scientific Paper gives beginning scientists and experienced researchers alike practical advice on writing about their work and publishing what they write. The core of the book consists of a "how-to" guide to writing and publishing research articles for scientific journals, explaining every step of the process, from choosing a suitable journal for your work to presenting the results and citing references. How to Write and Publish a Scientific Paper is the essential guide every scientist needs to achieve success in today's competitive environment. In addition to information on writing for scientific journals, the book provides additional advice for the scientist of the 21st century: BL What ethical issues are important in scientific publishing? BL What should a scientist know about rights and permissions? BL How does a scientist write a grant proposal, or prepare progress reports for administrators? BL What should a scientist know to work well with the media, or to write for a general audience? This revised edition of How to Write and Publish a Scientific Paper provides such practical advice for anyone working in any scientific discipline who needs to communicate his or her work effectively to others.
