How to Write and Publish a Scientific Paper is a strongly recommended addition to any novice and aspiring person of science's personal library collection." -- Midwest Book Review Praise for the Previous Edition: "The sections are self-sustaining and can be read as a topic of interest may arise. I recommend this book for the library of medical writers." -- American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) Journal Praise for the Previous Edition: "The comprehensive yet brief guide covers many facets of authorship and scientific stewardship.
