How to Write and Illustrate a Scientific Paper, Paperback / softback Book

How to Write and Illustrate a Scientific Paper Paperback / softback


This compact and easy-to-read book contains essential advice on how to take a manuscript from planning right through to publication.

It will help both first-time writers and more experienced authors to present their results more effectively.

While retaining the easy-to-read and well-structured approach of previous editions, the third edition of this essential guide has been expanded to include comprehensive advice on drawing graphs, and information about Open Access publishing.

Illustrations are discussed in detail, with examples of poor illustrations taken from real papers in top-ranked journals, redrawn for comparison.

Such before-and-after examples are also provided to demonstrate good and bad writing styles.

The reader is offered practical advice - from how to present a paper and where to submit the manuscript, through to responding to reviewers' comments and correcting the proofs - all developed through the author's extensive teaching experience and his many years spent working as a journal editor.
