How to Write a Good Scientific Paper – free eBook from SPIE
The SPIE Digital Library has published a free eBook, How to Write a Good Scientific Paper, by Chris A. Mack, editor-in-chief of the Journal of Micro/Nanolithography, MEMS, and MOEMS.
“Many scientists and engineers consider themselves poor writers or find the writing process difficult. The good news is that you do not have to be a talented writer to produce a good scientific paper, but you do have to be a careful writer. In particular, writing for a peer-reviewed scientific or engineering journal requires learning and executing a specific formula for presenting scientific work. This book is all about teaching the style and conventions of writing for a peer-reviewed scientific journal. From structure to style, titles to tables, abstracts to author lists, this book gives practical advice about the process of writing a paper and getting it published.”
