If you plan to do any medical writing, read this book first and get an immediate advantage. It walks the reader through all stages of writing a biomedical paper, and exemplifies the saying that "clear writing means clear thinking".
Even after having written or co-written perhaps 40 biomedical papers and grants, I found this book an eye-opener. She starts with word choice, sentence structure, then alternative paragraph structures. She practically shows you the nature of language and thought. She goes through the right way to produce biomed papers - if you ever thought the great, efficient writers had a rule book -you- never got, THIS is the rule book.
If you ever had an introduction that sounded like the abstract, or a results sections that was unwieldy, or a discussion section that seemed to repeat the introduction - Zeiger lays out the hidden rules that most people would want to follow.
Following her rules, from sentence to paragraph to section, creates a paper that invokes an instinctive sense of clarity in the reader. Many times I had the "Aha! The book should be very useful for all kinds of clear writing, including research grants. I never took one of those "scientific writing" classes because I felt smart and fluent and the classes seemed pedestrian. If those classes had used this book, I would have been way ahead to have discovered this information twenty years ago.
Great methods for improving your medical writing By J. Sutton on Apr 12, Mimi Zeiger has written a truly useful book about medical writing. Many specialized writing books are just collections of general writing rules in disguise. This books focuses on mechanics and methods of writing specifically for the medical sciences.
Full of hands-on techniques, methods, and exercises geared to analyzing and improving your writing. Five stars! The only critique is that the examples used are too technical for non-biomedical researchers, this makes it hard to understand the examples.
But even if you do not have a biomedical background you will learn a lot from this book. I have never seen a more comprehensive book on how to write clearly and write well. I would give it 6 stars if I could. Even non-scientists should read this.
This book will improve your papers By Bradley Olson on Jan 12, This is an outstanding book on how to improve the writing of biomedical research papers.
It is well organized, well presented and extremely helpful. I bought several writing books at the same time and this one stands out because not only is it a "how-to" book, but it is a workbook and mostly consists of exercises.
There is plenty of space in the book to do the exercises right in the book. Significantly, this book has dramatically improved my ability to edit my own papers, which has been one of my nagging writing weaknesses.
This will help people at all levels of education By Shopper on Nov 06, I am a graduate student and had a difficult time writing my first paper. I bought this book and it clarified all the hidden rules that you are "supposed to just know. It is perfect By Marcelo on Jun 10, The book make the process to make a paper so easy. You can use it for another subject like computers science papers.
Recommend to all novice biomedical writers I mentor. By William L. Siler, Ph. I quickly came to keep that first edition open by me as I worked through my own manuscripts. This new edition is still better. The author does a nice job with basics of writing and then works hard to put each phase of a biomedical article in context.
Each chapter provides extensive examples of a block of text that could use some crafting, and then works through how the text could have been presented or revised to make it stronger. I recommend it to all of my graduate students and to young faculty I mentor. Amazing book By Jirap on Dec 13, My friend recommend this book for me. This book is useful. I found many tricks for writing Biomedical research paper ,Example and lesson practice.
Mimi my heroine! By L on Sep 30, I had been really struggling to write my thesis, and my Supervisor recommended this helpful guide. Although directed toward research paper writing, the principles are transferable to thesis writing. Was recommended in my manuscript writing class By Nac on Mar 19, Was recommended in my manuscript writing class.
Allows for practical exercises for correction of style which I did not find in many other books on the same subject. Does not cover review articles or case reports. The easy to follow guidelines for writing at the end of every chapter are a plus, but the detailed examples are also extremely helpful. A must buy if you are looking for specific examples on how to improve your writing style and content.
