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.
Many people believe that searching the Web is as easy as typing a few terms into a box and clicking the search button. Like magic, in a matter of seconds, links to precise, accurate, and current answers will appear. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Almost every Internet user has used Google and probably Yahoo, and any group of experienced searchers could probably come up with a dozen or so sites that every one of them had used. This book is written as a guide for IT professionals – security, network, system, and desktop publishers, covering what serious users need to known to fully take advantage of internet tools and resources. For those who are not experienced online searchers, my aim is to provide a lot that is new and useful. For those of you with more experience, I hope to reinforce what you know while introducing some new perspectives and new content.

The advent of the web over the last two decades has resulted in the interest of organizations in different domains to use websites for facilitating their activities, both internal and external. Organizations seeking to obtain the best out of their websites need to create and maintain websites that are successful in supporting the interaction and communication of the organization with their users. It is also necessary to assess factors that affect the success of their websites. The Academic domain is one of the domains where the use of websites has augmented in recent years. This publication is the result of a Thesis project that focused on designing a framework for evaluating websites in academic domain from students' perspective. The evaluation framework bases its ground on one of the key definitions of software quality-“satisfaction of users” and website quality characteristics identified as necessary for academic websites. A sample testing of the website was done, which showed the success of the framework. The framework can be used as it is for evaluating academic websites, but future work to improve its usefullness is necessary, which includes designing a small application.

If you've asked someone the secret to writing efficient, well-written software, the answer that you've probably gotten is "learn assembly language programming." By learning assembly language programming, you learn how the machine really operates and thatknowledge will help you write better high-level language code. A dirty little secret assembly language programmers rarely admit to, however, is that what you really need to learn is machine organization, not assembly language programming. Write Great Code, the first in a series from assembly language expert Randall Hyde, dives right into machine organization without the extra overhead of learning assembly language programming at the same time. And since Write Great Code concentrates on the machine organization, not assembly language, the reader will learn in greater depth those subjects that are language-independent and of concern to a high level language programmer. Write Great Code will help programmers make wiser choices with respect to programming statements and data types when writing software, no matter which language they use.

Poetry is never more vital, meaningful, or accessible than in the hands of David Orr. In the pieces collected here, the great majority of them written originally for the readership of the New York Times, Orr is at his rigorous, conversational, and edifying best. Whether he is considering the careers of contemporary masters, such as Louise Gluck or Frederick Seidel, sizing up younger American poets, like Matthea Harvey and Matthew Zapruder, or even turning his attention to celebrities and public figures, namely Oprah Winfrey and Stephen Fry, when they choose to wade into the hotly-contested waters of the poetry world, Orr is never any less than totally persuasive in arguing what makes a poem or poet great--or not. After all, as Orr points out in his introduction, "Poetry is a lot like America, in the sense that liking all of it means that you probably shouldn't be trusted with money, or scissors."Orr's prose is devoted to common sense and clarity, and, in every case, he brings to bear an impeccable ear, a genial openhandedness of spirit, and a deep wealth of technical knowledge--to say nothing of his shrewd sense of humor. Orr's journalism represents a high watermark in the public discussion of literature, and is as pleasurable as it is informative. You, Too, Could Write a Poem is at heart a love note to poetry itself.

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.
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.

Someone asked me why I thought writing a book on careers’ would give me any relief and satisfaction? Was it an urge or satisfaction of the teens? Was I writing to make my pockets any deeper? Was I trying to fulfill an urge to become a top writer? Or was it just possible to write for the fun of it, maybe it just felt right to write. Have you ever asked yourself why you settled for that particular career? It could have been because of the growing demand for it and the opportunities available or the love for it or someone somewhere tied you to a profession he could easily help you access. The reasons being inconclusive in nature, I will try to make you understand why it is important to consider various habits and factors in your subsequent life or future career before settling in and making it fruitful, plus pros and cons you may end up facing towards success of that particular career you may choose to specialize in.
