Description : Let the Author's Handbook of Styles for Life Science Journals save you time and trouble by providing a one-stop resource for all your manuscript writing requirements. No more plowing through your journal collection or wandering the library stacks to get those elusive journal pages containing instructions to authors. This unique book contains all the information you need to know: whether the journal will consider your manuscript; the journal's submission address; how to construct the abstract, illustrations, tables, and references; and specific information on copyright, multiple authorship, statistical analyses, and page charges. The Author's Handbook of Styles for Life Science Journals gives all this information for 440 of the most important English-language, life science journals. Titles were selected from the "Journal Rankings by Times Cited" list in the Science Citation Index Journal Citation Report. Because this report is heavily weighted toward the medical sciences, other life science journals are incorporated into the book based on general level of prestige and reputation. In addition, some new titles that promise to be important to their fields, like Nature Medicine and Emerging Infectious Diseases are also included. Organized by journal title, the handbook's entries are uniformly arranged to allow direct comparison between journals. Information is presented in an easy-to-use, easy-to-read format with clear and explicitly stated instructions. The Author's Handbook of Styles for Life Science Journals gives authors in the life sciences all the information necessary for the correct and complete compilation of a manuscript for submission to their journal of choice.
Description : Reports the findings of a 1985 survey of nearly 500 scientists in 67 developing countries, discussing topics such as the role of research in nontechnical societies, allocation of scarce finances, importing science, and the isolation of being far from the scientific centers.

Description : Turn your students into scientists who use their knowledge and creativity to solve real-world problems. Each lesson features a step-by-step guide; a summary of recent research; and handouts that are classroom-ready. Learn about the three levels of writing, from a Level 1 quickwrite to a formal, multi-part, Level 3 research paper. Each writing assignment—narrative, persuasive, and informative—includes a detailed rubric that makes grading easy. Students collaborate to contain an outbreak of avian flu, lead a group of people trying to survive under harsh conditions, battle drought in a densely-populated city in the American southwest, research the behavior of animals in the local region, and calculate their own speed, velocity, and momentum. Engaging and demanding, Project-Based Writing in Science helps students to understand and improve the world.
