Overview

Getting Research Published: An A-Z of Publication Strategy, Third Edition / Edition 3

The third edition of this popular and highly-regarded guide uncovers the ethics, conventions and often unwritten rules of publishing in peer-reviewed journals and at conferences. It provides clear direction on how to choose the right journal, avoid publication delays, resolve authorship disputes and many other problems associated with being published that pose challenges to new and experienced researchers alike.

The A to Z format is highly accessible to readers with different backgrounds and varying levels of publication experience, including students and healthcare professionals, medical researchers and individuals working in drug companies and communications agencies. It will be particularly valuable to anyone involved in planning publications.
