The purpose of academic research is publication. Graduate students are measured primarily not by their innate knowledge of either broad or narrow scientific subject; they are measured by their publications. The goal of this book is to help graduate students to prepare manuscripts that will have a high probability of being accepted for publication and of being completely understood when they are published. Because the requirements of journals vary widely, it is not possible to offer a recommendation that is universally acceptable. This book is tray to lay out some key concepts in the process of writing a manuscript. I will not cover methods for any one discipline, but rather, provide certain basic principles that are accepted in most disciplines.
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.
Written out of the author’s awareness of the problems many students and young researchers encounter when writing their research papers, this book is a simplified presentation of the fundamentals of research. Its technically simple style is aimed at making the book accessible to people of all academic persuasions. Most research studies or projects begin with a written proposal. For this reason, the book starts with a section on how to write a good standard research proposal. In the second section, the book discusses in detail the way in which a research project, dissertation or thesis must be outlined once the research proposal has been accepted. Chapter three looks specifically at a journal paper/article as another very important type of research paper. It gives a brief survey of important points to bear in mind when writing a journal article as well as the structure such a paper is expected to follow. Chapter four is a brief presentation of some of the methods of citation and reference styles commonly used in research.

For many people, creative writing sounds fun but intimidating. "I'm not good at that," they think, without even knowing where they?d start. Experienced writers, on the other hand, may know exactly where to start, but have plenty of other excuses for not putting pen to paper: too busy, too tired, or the dreaded "writer's block". The solution for both is the same: just start writing. This handy workbook will give you plenty of fun, low-pressure opportunities for you to get your imagination flowing. Collected from the minds and notebooks of the San Francisco Writers' Grotto, the book's prompts range from personal reflection, to silly lyric writing, to character development, and everything in between and beyond. Take them seriously or just have fun. Grab a pen, open this book to any page, and find the writer inside you. Printed in China.
Research has indicated that regular, systematic writing, over an extended period of time, improves student academic achievement and attitude towards mathematics. In addition there is support that assessment for learning strategies, such as descriptive feedback and peer and self-assessment, are vital to enhancing students’ overall performance. Traditional teaching practices of chalk and talk do not meet the needs of students entering our classrooms today. Teachers must be innovative and rely on a combination of teaching methods to stimulate students’ interest and to elicit participation in their own learning process. Journal writing has been more commonly associated with English/Language Arts classes. However, current research has found that when students write and explain what they are thinking in a written format, they gain a deeper understanding of the math concepts and skills. This book should help all educators in the K-12 setting see the relevance and importance of implementing the use of journal writing when teaching mathematics.
