This e-book is highly recommended by one of our faculty for students in the sciences. The article is most useful in delineating how to write a scholarly article for a peer-viewed scientific journal. Each section of a scientific paper is addressed, highlighting various challenges that a student might encounter with each section (Chapter 2). It is also a helpful book to address language and style (chapter 3), figures and tables (chapter 4), citations (chapter 5) and the abstract and title (chapter 6).
Heard focuses on the “story” of the research and the narrative the writer creates, which should inform the way information, data, and analysis are organized. This book also provides helpful recommendations and tools for self-revision.
