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.
'Just Close Your Eyes and Writea?¦100 Poems in 100 Hours', chronicles the poetry and writing process of an interactive experiment to pen 100 poems in just 100 hours. The original intent of the writing project was to simply try to write 100 poems in 100 hours. However, with the use of an online social networking site, it became more than just a solo writing project. Roughly 150 people participated by posting, commenting, liking, sharing inspiration and offering encouragement. And given that the arena for this was online, comments, inspirations and encouragement came from more than 20 countries throughout the world including the USA, Poland, Canada, Kenya, Italy, India, Ghana, Turkey, the Czech Republic, Columbia, UK and more. Just Close Your Eyes and Writea?¦100 Poems in 100 Hours includes three sections. The first section contains the poems, notes, and comments written during the 100 hours giving insight to process and challenges of writing the poems. The revised and finalized versions of poems written during the writing experiment fill the second section. The third section includes biographies and details of those who offered the inspiration and encouragement needed for a poet to complete the 100 poems in 100 hours.
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.
