“In summary, this book is recommended when planning a first publication, but the high-level view might also offer additional perspectives to more experienced researchers as well as non-researchers. I would put it in the library.” (Occupational Medicine, 1 August 2013)"The contributions [to this title] are written by people who know what they are talking about, and that is why I think the book worked.... It has a feel of the real world. Much of the advice is sound as well as clearly summarised." (Evidence Based Medicine, April 2009)
"This is a great book and its early promise was fulfilled with ease. Anybody involved in writing papers would benefit from this book.... An excellent book: 10/10." (Urology News, May/June 2009)
“The book is written for medical journal authors, but the advice is applicable much more broadly. The book offers numerous practical tips … .The book also offers a behind-the-scenes peek into the world of editors, publishers and assessors (reviewers), as well as discussions of ethics, authorship and other related topics.” (Journal of Clinical Research Best Practices, December 2008)
