This practical guide is designed to help scientific researchers write and publish their work in a scientific journal. It provides information on how to prepare each section of a scientific paper, covering the abstract, introduction, methods, results, discussion, acknowledgements and references. Retaining the core material that made earlier editions such a success, this new edition includes sections on approaching a writing project, understanding the ethics of scientific publishing, and writing about science for non-native speakers of English. The book explains how journals function and advises on choosing an appropriate journal. It offers guidance on writing theses, review articles, grant proposals, and preparing scientific materials for the public. Appendices include lists of useful abbreviations, expressions to avoid in scientific writing, and corrections of common style errors and spelling mistakes. This book is a valuable guide to scientists at all levels, from new graduate students to experienced professionals.cal perspective; 3. Approaching a writing project; 4. What is a scientific pap
