  • Mastering Scientific and Medical Writing
    Rogers, Silvia M. Berlin: Springer, 2007. "This books deals with clear, unambiguous language within and across the biological and medical sciences. Unlike textbooks on English grammar that analyze and prescribe the use of the language in its various forms, this book tells you how to apply your existing language skills to scientific communication." (p xvii-xviii)
  • From Research to Manuscript: A Guide to Scientific Writing
    Katz, Michael J. Dordrecht, Netherlands: Springer, 2006. "As a contributing scientist, you must write scientific papers. Writing a good scientific paper takes time. On the other hand, the writing will seem endless if you begin with the title and slog straight through to the last reference. This approach is difficult, wearing, and inefficient. There is a much more effective way to write." (p x)
  • Scientific Writing: A Reader and Writer's Guide
    Lebrun, Jean-Luc. Hackensack, NJ: World Scientific, 2007. "This toolkit is quite special. It contains resources invisible to the naked eye, like time, memory, energy, attention, and motivation. A skillful writer minimises the time, memory, and energy needed for reading, while keeping reader attention and motivation high." (p 1)
  • Doing a Literature Review in Health and Social Care: A Practical Guide
    Aveyard, Helen. Maidenhead: McGraw-Hill, 2010. "This book will guide you through the process of developing a literature review question, searching, appraising and analysing the literature so that you can develop a comprehensive and systematic approach to your review." (p 1)
