Publishing the results of your research is just as important as the experimental work itself. But this evidence frequently causes tremendous grief when the time for writing arrives. The novice researcher or student having to write his thesis or first article is thus bombarded with a host of questions: should he write the abstract first? Follow the order of various sections starting with the introduction?
This work for use by biological, medical, agronomic and veterinary scientists has been written to decipher the unknowns and answer all the questions which bombard the authors throughout the article writing process. The book suggests how to start writing by focusing on the structure of articles rather than the grammar and syntax, underlining the role of the hypothesis in constructing the article. It also emphasises the fact that scientific style is first and foremost logical.
