This second edition of How to Write and Illustrate a Scientific Paper will help both first-time writers and more experienced authors, in all biological and medical disciplines, to present their results effectively. Whilst retaining the easy-to-read and well-structured approach of the previous edition, it has been broadened to include comprehensive advice on writing compilation theses for doctoral degrees, and a detailed description of preparing case reports. Illustrations, particularly graphs, are discussed in detail, with poor examples redrawn for comparison. The reader is offered advice on how to present the paper, where and how to submit the manuscript, and finally, how to correct the proofs. Examples of both good and bad writing, selected from actual journal articles, illustrate the authors advice - which has been developed through his extensive teaching experience - in this accessible and informative guide.

Bj�rn Gustavii has been teaching courses in scientific writing for doctoral (Ph.D.) students in medicine for twenty-five years. He brings his personal experience to this book, both from writing more than a hundred of his own research papers and from his work as a journal editor.
