This publication contains six articles on qualitative research, primarily in the areas of social science, business and management, and human resource development (HRD). In recent times, it would appear that qualitative research has gradually started to become more popular than quantitative research in these areas of research. Having said this, however, the papers are not entirely restricted to qualitative research. The second paper, for example, refers to ‘mixed methods’ research, which incorporates both qualitative and quantitative research, while the final paper concerns research on ‘social capital’. The editors and authors of the papers are all academics or doctoral candidates/intending academics. This volume should be of particular interest to theses examiners, doctoral supervisors, and students, particularly those interested in qualitative research in these areas.
Scientific research articles provide a method for scientists to communicate with other scientists about the results of their research. A standard format is used for these articles, in which the author presents the research in an orderly, logical manner. This doesn't necessarily reflect the order in which you did or thought about the work. The dissemination of research results and findings is an integral part of the research process. Researchers write to keep records of their work for themselves, but more importantly also for the readers and peer researchers who are expecting a standard form, language, and style when reading research papers. Writing in a scientific style may be hard in the beginning for novices, but clear communication and concise writing have no magic involved. The author has helped provide to the profession significant information on which to base current decisions on writing of scientific articles and on which to build for future developments and methods. This book gives an introductory report on basic issues of writing and organizing scientific articles, and getting them published.

The book is the compilation of research papers and review articles contributed by the eminent scientists and research workers. This book contains ten chapters: Introduction, Biology of A. flavus Group Fungi, Biosynthesis of Aflatoxin, Detection of Aflatoxin, Health Risks, Toxic Effects (Aflatoxicosis), Ecology of Aflatoxin Contamination, Control of Aflatoxin, Safety Measures, and Conclusion. This review and bibliography of the Biology and Ecology of A. flavus Group Fungi on Food Grains should be of particular value to scientists in the developing world who may not have ready access to the special journals and reports in which much of the research on aflatoxins has been documented. The authors’ original research papers are summarized in appropriate chapters but some editing has been done with the articles of other researchers to provide consistency and clear elucidation for the readers. In a publication of this nature omissions are inevitable and the authors would appreciate having these brought to their notice. The authors hope that the volume may serve as one of the best references to postgraduate students, teachers and researchers dealing with agricultural microbiology.

This book is a teacher in itself, intended to guide students of tertiary institutions including researchers on one easy way to write papers for submission to a journal. The language used is kept as simple as possible for easy understanding. The book gave a general background to writing scientific research papers, what to consider before starting to write a scientific paper, how to attract other readers to your work and it enables the reader to know the qualities the editors and referees will be looking for in a paper as part of its consideration for publication. It takes each of the main parts of a research paper and looks at what usually goes into them with practical examples. Writing research papers is too wide a field to be able to cover every aspect in one small book. Other books deal in greater detail with other areas of scientific writing especially its technical details. It is not meant to be complete but as a basic introduction. I hope that the book will assist many scientists as they undertake the difficult task of writing their papers for submission to International Scientific Journals. I am delighted to publish this book and make it available to the developing world.
