This book shows scientists how to apply their analysis and synthesis skills to overcoming the challenge of how to write, as well as what to write, to maximise their chances of publishing in international scientific journals. The book uses analysis of the scientific article genre to provide clear processes for writing each section of a manuscript, starting with clear ‘story’ construction and packaging of results. Each learning step uses practical exercises to develop writing and data presentation skills based on reader analysis of well-written example papers. Strategies are presented for responding to referee comments, and for developing discipline-specific English language skills for manuscript writing and polishing. The book is designed for scientists who use English as a first or an additional language, and for individual scientists or mentors or a class setting. In response to reader requests, the new edition includes review articles and the full range of research article formats, as well as applying the book’s principles to writing funding applications.

Paths to College and Career Jossey-Bass and PCG Education are proud to bring the Paths to College and Career English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum and professional development resources for grades 6–12 to educators across the country. Originally developed for EngageNY and written with a focus on the shifts in instructional practice and student experiences the standards require, Paths to College and Career includes daily lesson plans, guiding questions, recommended texts, scaffolding strategies and other classroom resources. The Paths Writing Units, Argument Writing, Informative Writing, and Narrative Writing, complement the full instructional program and can also be used independently, providing in-depth writing instruction to support all students in grades 9–12 in meeting grade level standards. To emphasize the relationship between reading and writing, each Writing Unit includes accessible model texts that exemplify key elements of each text type, and source texts that provide a topic for the unit writing assignment. Individual lessons guide students through the writing process, providing instruction on grammar and conventions and highlighting collaboration and reflection as key elements of effective writing. Students' final essays are assessed using a checklist developed by the class over the course of the unit. The organization and distinctive content of the model and source texts in each unit afford teachers the flexibility to implement each unit independently of the others, and at any point during the curriculum. For example, a unit may be implemented to assess students' writing prior to implementation of the standard curriculum, to scaffold writing instruction leading into a writing assessment, or to support struggling writers by addressing gaps in skills as demonstrated in previous assessments. The Paths Writing Units provide teachers with invaluable opportunities to engage students as active participants in their own learning at every stage of the writing process, and to customize instruction to meet the varying needs of all students.

A SCIENTIFIC APPROACH TO WRITING Technical ideas may be solid or even groundbreaking, but if these ideas cannot be clearly communicated, reviewers of technical documents—e.g., proposals for research funding, articles submitted to scientific journals, and business plans to commercialize technology—are likely to reject the argument for advancing these ideas. The problem is that many engineers and scientists, entirely comfortable with the logic and principles of mathematics and science, treat writing as if it possesses none of these attributes. The absence of a systematic framework for writing often results in sentences that are difficult to follow or arguments that leave reviewers scratching their heads. This book fixes that problem by presenting a “scientific” approach to writing that mirrors the sensibilities of scientists and engineers, an approach based on an easily-discernable set of principles. Rather than merely stating rules for English grammar and composition, this book explains the reasons behind these rules and shows that good reasons can guide every writing decision. This resource is also well suited for the growing number of scientists and engineers in the U.S. and elsewhere who speak English as a second language, as well as for anyone else who just wants to be understood.
In thirty five years of writing about food and cookery I have contributed articles to a very various collection of publications. From the Sunday Times to Nova, from Vogue to the Spectator, from the long defunct travel magazine Go to Cyril Ray's Compleat Imbiber, Peter Dominic's Wine Mine and quite a few others, I have put together the present volume. The bulk of the articles included were written during the decade between 1955 when I joined the Sunday Times as cookery contributor and 1965 when I launched my kitchen shop. For several of those years I was contributing a monthly article apiece to Vogue and House and Garden as well as a fortnightly one to the Sunday Times, and in 1960 had published French Provincial Cooking. In 1961, freed from the Sunday Times and the monthly stints for the Conde Nast magazines, I worked for a time for the moribund Sunday Dispatch and wrote my first contribution for the Spectator and, unexpectedly perhaps, thoroughly enjoyed writing for both publications. What matters is sympathetic editors who know how to get the best out of their contributors, and in that respect I have been, albeit with one or two notable exceptions, very fortunate.

Академик Леонид Витальевич Канторович - выдающийся математик и экономист, лауреат Сталинской (1949), Ленинской (1965) премий и Нобелевской премии по экономике (1975). Издание содержит пионерские работы Л.В.Канторовича по математическому программированию и математической экономике, выполненные им в 1938-1960 гг. Большая часть этих работ давно стала библиографической редкостью, а некоторые были опубликованы спустя много лет после написания или вовсе не были опубликованы по идеологическим соображениям. Документированная публикация этих работ с указанием времени их написания подтверждает приоритет российской науки в области оптимизационного подхода в исследовании экономики. Книга ориентирована на широкий круг читателей, интересующихся математическими методами в экономических исследованиях. Academician Leonid Vital'evich Kantorovich was a prominent mathematician and economist who was awarded with a Stalin Prize (1949), a Lenin Prize (1965), and a Nobel prize in economics (1975). The book contains Kantorovich's pioneering articles in mathematical programming and mathematical economics which were completed from 1938 to the 1960s. Most of these articles are bibliographic rarities, while some of them were published after the lapse of many years from the date of their writing or were never published at all by some ideological reasons. Documented publication of the articles with the genuine time data corroborates the priority of the Russian science in the area of the approach to economic studies which bases on optimization. The book is intended for the wide readership of those interested in the mathematical methods of economic studies.
