Paul J Casella, MFA, AB (University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine)


As subtitled, this is indeed a practical guide to scientific writing. The book is organized in a straightforward way, from its overall approach to clear and effective writing and publishing strategies to the advice and examples that accommodate readers who wish to dip into specific chapters for particular pearls of wisdom. Over a dozen different contributors and chapter co-authors provide a range of perspectives.


The purpose is to demystify the writing and submission process with practical strategies to produce clear and effective articles for academic scientific journals. Although many similar books have appeared over the decades with this purpose -- the gold standard is Edward Huth's Writing and Publishing in Medicine, 3rd edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1999) -- this is still a worthy purpose. The book meets the author's objectives, particularly in the variety of examples he provides at the end of each chapter.


The book is written for students to professors of health sciences, and everyone in between. Practitioners interested in opportunities in translational science and collaborative approaches to science also would benefit from the advice and examples in this book. A wide range of clinical specialties and areas of scientific inquiry is represented.


Any book about scientific writing needs to address both how to think clearly and how to convey that thinking to readers, and this book accomplishes that mission with its focus on the reasoning in a scientific paper. It also addresses the ethical considerations in science as well as in publishing, again offering practical advice on how to secure permissions, on what material needs to be cited, and on how to cite it. The book effectively uses tables, flow charts, and figures to convey information as well to demonstrate their use in scientific writing.


"Although the information and strategies in this book are not ground breaking or innovative, I admire it for its practical approach, its broad group of contributors, its question-and-answer format in places, its concise chapters and good use of subheadings, and, most importantly, its generous use of writing samples that will help guide aspiring authors in their own writing. In this, in particular, this book stands out from the crowd "
