SCIENCE-BASED GUIDELINES ON WRITING IN SCIENCE
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WRITING, PUBLISHING, GRANTS, AND COMMUNICATING WITH THE PUBLIC IN BIOMEDICINE
Before You Write Your Next Grant or Manuscript: Read. This. Book
All the advice you should have received — but never have.
• What's the single biggest mistake researchers make in submitting a manuscript to a journal?
• Why do so many studies in medicine commit the error economists identify as the Law of Small Numbers?
• Why do some studies get splashed across the mass media—even if they were published in obscure journals—while game-changing findings languish in obscurity?
Learn the answers to these and dozens of other questions, which spell the difference between success and failure in obtaining grant funding and in getting articles published in top journals.
ADVANCE PRAISE FOR THE BIOMEDICAL WRITER
“I wouldn’t just recommend that every biomedical researcher [or] any scientific
researcher… read this book. I would plead for them all to do so. The advice
here won’t just make your papers clearer and more publishable, and your
grant proposals more likely to succeed. It could benefit the entire scientific
enterprise… This is the best, most comprehensive primer I’ve ever seen.
