Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The advantage of this book compared to many others on this topic, is that on the one hand, it is very concise, simple, and in plain language; on the other hand, it covers all the stages of writing and publishing an article

Maybe the strongest accolade I can give this book is that it has now become one of the core texts for the SRA’s training courses on writing research reports and publishing research... Publishing Journal Articles... holds your hand, provides practical guidance and does it with a good sense of empathy... In summary, it's well worth a read if you are new to this area.

Johannes Wheeldon
'Publishing Journal Articles by Lucinda Becker and Pam Denicolo is short, accessible, and useful contributions that will help readers overcome some of their own foibles. Full of suggestions, advice, tips and techniques, this short book presents writing as a series of choices to be considered. Throughout, it offers reflections based on the author’s impressive and varied experience. As part of the Success in Research series, this effort seeks to assist researchers to better organize, present, and manage their writing careers. It largely succeeds. [...]This will be a useful introduction for some and an invaluable guide for many others. The authors should be commended for finding ways to offer general tips that transcend disciplinary boundaries'
