Overview

To get research published in a scientific journal not only must you have something important to say but you must also know how to present it. Reviewers want to be able to assess quickly whether a paper is worthy of publication, and the structure and readability of the paper is immensely important.

In "How to Write a Paper", contributors from a wide variety of medical journals and backgrounds give simple didactic advice on the following: how to approach the various sections of a scientific paper—

abstracts, introductions, methods, results, discussions and references, how to write case reports and reviews and the publishing process—

the role of the editor, assessor, publisher, house style and electronic publishing.

How to write is something that is often overlooked in the education of doctors and scientists. This book should be of value to all researchers who are aiming to get their work published, especially those in the early stages of their career, and those for whom English is not their first language.
