We live in an unprecedented era of flourishing of scientific publishing. However, many professionals in the biomedical sciences find writing articles to be a daunting task. The book is meant to serve as a practical writing guide that covers the writing process from the project's inception until online distribution of the published article. The book covers the framework for constructing a scientific study into a coherent narrative that can later be easily translated into a written manuscript. The content of each article section in accordance with the IMRAD format is covered and many details for the construction of additional submission materials are provided. Characteristics of papers reporting on specific types of research are presented as well as article types other than the general full research article. The book is full of resources for additional reading and learning. There are many writing guides on the market. Most of them are general, cover a wide range of scientific writing, and are mainly aimed at students. This book is best suited for young professionals who are a few years out of school. They no longer enjoy the benefit of close mentoring by a thesis adviser or equivalent, but still lack the experience to lead writing projects on their own. Through her experience of teaching young professionals and editing their work, Dr Diskin has learned their unique set of needs and the book has been written in an attempt to address them. Dr Diskin addresses the reader in the second person, with an ever-supportive tone. Importantly, the practicalities of writing articles in today's interconnected environment are discussed throughout the book. Topics such as coordinating the writing in a multinational team, use of different types of software in the writing process and resources available online to support the writer are addressed in detail. Contents: Foreword Acknowledgements Before you Write Choosing your Target Journal The Methods Section The Results Section The Introduction The Discussion The Abstract and Title When you have a Full Draft Following Submission Abbreviations and Terms References Readership: Doctors, pharmacists, nurses and other young professionals who write journal articles in the biomedical sciences.

All of us in biomedicine understand the urgency of getting experimental results into print as quickly as possible. Yet this critical step in the cascade from research conception to publication receives almost no attention in our formal training. It is as if we have been put to sea without a compass. Our collective failure to achieve widespread literacy in our own language – Biomedical Language – seriously impedes the important process of d- seminating new biomedical knowledge and thereby improving the human condition. It is also a significant personal concern for researchers and clinicians in the highly competitive, publish-or-perish environment of c- temporary academia. Of course, if we are clever or lucky enough to come up with that Nobel Prize-winning discovery, great science will carry the day and we are likely to get published even if our writing is fairly horrid. But most of us who publish are “bread-and-butter” scientists. We compete for space in journals which may only accept 10% or 20% of the submissions that they receive each year. For us, convincing, engaging writing will make the difference between being published or rejected, or at least it will make the difference between being published on ? rst submission or having to go through a number of revisions (or journals). None of this is to propose that good writing can make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. Scienti? c content is the sine qua non of biomedical writing.
