Most scientists live in a "publish or perish" environment, but few would describe themselves as brilliant (or enthusiastic) writers. Coming to the aid of all those wishing to improve the quality of their scientific writing -- established researchers and aspiring students alike -- three experienced authors/scientists from differing backgrounds and cultures have compiled this classic guide.
This new edition has been completely revised to reflect dramatic changes in communication over the past 15 years. The primary emphasis is on writing techniques, accurate expression, adherence to accepted standards, and above all clarity, but the authors also venture into communication technology and organizational as well as ethical aspects of science. Numerous appendices and a particularly comprehensive index complete this highly useful book.

"The authors have a passion, not only for clarity and economy of style, but also for precision and consistency."
(Nature)

"A wealth of information contained in a single book of manageable proportions. Students reporting on a simple laboratory experiment and their teachers preparing a paper or lecture will both find this book a constant companion."
(European Science Editing)

"The book under review claims, 'we know of no book as broad in its coverage, as critical in its analysis of existing trends, and as international in its scope'. This claim is immodest but accurate."
(Trends in Pharmacological Sciences)

From the Publisher:

A highly readable text on scientific communication - with all its ramifications from writing the most effective text to getting it published. The handbook will also serve as a ready-reference book for every emergency an author may encounter (for example, an important galley correction has been made, a Note Added in Proof must be inserted, a copyright contract must be studied). Finally, the volume is a complete and lucid description of all methods and processes used in writing and printing - to be looked up if an unfamiliar technical term is encountered.
