Maybe the strongest accolade I can give this book is that it has now become one of the core texts for the SRA’s training courses on writing research reports and publishing research... Publishing Journal Articles... holds your hand, provides practical guidance and does it with a good sense of empathy... In summary, it's well worth a read if you are new to this area.
