This book is an informative source both for seasoned and novice researchers and provides them with practical and straightforward guides to organize, write, submit, and revise their scientific papers in all disciplines. The materials covered in this book conform to the very recent and up-to-date principles and are on the basis of practical experience of researchers who have published several papers and books in international journals and data-bases. The following invaluable and straightforward features have made study of the book vey necessary for researchers. Some of them include perspectives and information about the: • Scientific and precise use of language and grammar in scientific papers • Instructions and techniques required for writing standard scientific paper • Choosing appropriate journal for your paper • Choosing appropriate format for your cover letter to the editor and submission of your paper • The review process and ethics of publication • An appendix that provides succinct grammatical advice necessary for standard paper writing
In 1836 the 23-year-old Dickens was invited by his publishers to write "a monthly something" illustrated by sporting plates. Thus the Pickwick Club was born: its supposed "papers" soom outgrew their origins and became a brilliantly comic novel, still among Dicken's most popular works.
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.
How do you make the transition from promising researcher to established academic author? Many cross this Rubicon without knowing if they paddled, swam or built a boat; others drown as they thrash around in mid-stream. And the mere phrase ‘academic publishing’ covers a multitude of sins; it is enough to give the uninitiated the willies. Writing monographs, research papers, book reviews, conference abstracts or whatever each requires a different approach. You have to decide what it is you are going to write and where to publish it. On the way you will meet the good, the bad and the ugly, succinctly describing most co-authors, peer reviewers and editors (not necessarily in that order). After all, the only way to write like an academic is to write like an academic … but where do you start? You could do much worse than start here. Stephen Donovan has been publishing on such diverse subjects as Caribbean geology, palaeontology, the history of science and academic authorship for over 30 years. He loves research, writing and publishing, and has compiled a book of highly readable essays to help all researchers, both the new and not so new, to write better papers and to get them published.

An e-writer called Ali or Alix will write to order anything you like, provided that you are prepared to enter the story as yourself and take the risk of leaving it as someone else. You can be the hero of your own life. You can have freedom just for one night. But there is a price to pay.
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.
This book mainly focuses on households willingness to pay for electricity connection options in rural areas of Ethiopia.

It is an undeniable fact that Mother-to-Child Transmission (MTCT) of HIV/AIDS accounts for the highest single mode of infection in children (UNAIDS, 1998). But, are pregnant women aware of the possibility of Preventing Mother-to-Child Transmission (PMTCT) of HIV/AIDS; are they Willing-to-Pay (WTP) for PMTCT of HIV/AIDS; and how much are they willing to pay? Using Ghana as a case study, this book employs the Contingent Valuation Method (CVM) to provide answers to these and other questions…
A major problem that confronts many urban areas in the world is the provision of potable water on constant basis. One reason for this occurrence is the inability of service providers to meet the growing demand partly is attributable to ineffective pricing which is below cost recovery levels. In this study we investigate household’s willingness to pay for improved water provision together with the factors that determine households willingness to pay using the contingent valuation method (CVM) and the ordered probit econometric model. The study used a cross section data collected from a sample of 315 households drawn from different areas in the Accra-Tema metropolis through a discrete choice with follow-up elicitation format using face-to-face interview. Results from our analysis indicated that, households in the Accra-Tema metropolis are prepared to pay on the average about 7 times more than what they are paying currently. Policy recommendation emanating from the study is that, governments should improve on water infrastructure and consequently water supply and increase tariffs since people are prepared to pay more for improved water supply.
