Editorial Reviews

Review

“This volume will be useful for upper-level undergraduates, ESL students, and graduate students who need assistance in writing for publication.  Summing Up: Recommended.  Upper-division undergraduates and graduate students.”  (Choice, 1 November 2013)

“As was the case with its predecessor, the second edition of Writing Scientific Research Articles will be of most value to early-career scientists with little writing experience. It should also be read by research scientists who do not have English as their first language. The book could also serve as a refresher in scientific writing for experienced scientists, and it contains a lot of sound advice that should be heeded by English-speaking researchers.”  (Aquaculture International, 1 August 2013)

From the Back Cover

This book shows scientists how to apply their analysis and synthesis skills to overcoming the challenge of how to write, as well as what to write, to maximise their chances of publishing in international scientific journals. The book uses analysis of the scientific article genre to provide clear processes for writing each section of a manuscript, starting with clear ‘story’ construction and packaging of results. Each learning step uses practical exercises to develop writing and data presentation skills based on reader analysis of well-written example papers. Strategies are presented for responding to referee comments, and for developing discipline-specific English language skills for manuscript writing and polishing. The book is designed for scientists who use English as a first or an additional language, and for individual scientists or mentors or a class setting. In response to reader requests, the new edition includes review articles and the full range of research article formats, as well as applying the book’s principles to writing funding applications.

I have this book along with another one on scientific writing. They compliment one another. This one is not as strong when it comes to developing a writing style, but it is more helpful when it comes to understanding the publication process. Overall, I am very pleased with this book. Keep in mind that I am new to scientific writing. Further, that I am also learning a new format to address a new audience. However, compared to any of the insights I have gotten folks who putatively knew how to write scientifically and have edited my past work, this is light years ahead of that experience! I recommend the Kindle edition so you can take notes as you read. In addition, I have this and the other book on my Mac and iPad so I have them wherever I am as a reference.

Format: Paperback
This book is an outstanding aid to writing for academic publication. Whenever I'm writing a journal article I have this book open on my desk, and flip back and forth through relevant sections. I find that writing is easier, and I keep a clearer idea of what, and how much is necessary for each part of an article when I have this book nearby.

Someone asked me if this was just for students, and my answer was no. As background, I'm a post-doctoral researcher (5 years post PhD). I always find academic article writing easier with this book close by. I think it's because, as an English-as-first-language speaker/writer, I have an implicit understanding of 'common-use' English. However, the rules of common-use English don't serve to produce concise, precise academic writing. This book helps me to keep track of the goals and priorities of my writing in each article section, and to make the translation to academic English.

I should also say, I owned a copy of the first edition and when it went missing (vanished into a PhD students?) I was more than happy to buy a new copy of this, the second edition.

I'll finish by saying that many of our PhD students have either the first or second eddition of this book, and have also found it very helpful.
