Many scientists experience difficulty in writing papers. Whatever their discipline, nationality or level of experience, this long-awaited successor to Writing Scientific Papers in English will make the task of documenting their work much easier. Eleven revised and updated chapters cover all the steps in preparing a research paper for publication, from deciding when to write to selecting the journal for submission. Four further chapters give practical advice on the preparation of short talks and posters, theses, review articles and book reviews, grant proposals and curricula vitae. This text combines practical tips for the first-time writer with useful instructions for experienced contributors wishing to improve their technique and includes advice on preparing illustrations, both in a traditional manner and with the aid of computer graphics. Writing Successfully in Science pays particular attention to the needs of scientists whose first language is not English, explaining how to avoid the main pitfalls of English grammar and how to present work in a clear and logical fashion.
